Boating

The peaceful Unami Lake gives Cubs the opportunity to try out canoes, rowboys, paddle boats, and Corcls! Scouts classified as “Swimmers” may take out any watercraft on their own. Those Cubs who are “Beginners” or “Non-Swimmers” are allowed to ride as passengers in a boat with an adult “Swimmer.” The Unami also gives Scouts the opportunity to find multiple fishing spots.

Handicraft

Beads, gimp, leather, paint, paper, feathers, and wood are the beginnings of your very own Musser craft project at our Handicraft Center. Cubs can use materials available or purchase project kits from the Trading Post to create outstanding souvenirs to take home, all under the guidance of our knowledgeable Handicraft staff.

Nature

The flora and fauna of camp are all around as you wander along our Nature trail, participate in one of our exciting evening programs, or simply sit back and enjoy the mysterious world around you. All of the living creatures of Musser find their way to the Nature Lodge - you never know what sort of specimens will be on display.

Pool

SPLASH! Relax and cool down while the Buddy System is in full effect at our multi-section pool, designed to accommodate swimmers of all swimming ability. “Swimmers” are allowed in all three areas of the pool, while “Beginners” can swim in the shallow and intermediate sections, and “Non-Swimmers” can hang out in the shallow section. All Cubs can cool down, learn to swim, and attend morning Polar Bear.

Scoutcraft

The whole of the outdoors is at your disposal as Cubs learn all of the basic Scout skills. Learn to tie knots, create a pioneering project, and cook outdoors as you also learn how to safely use a pocket knife and build a fire. Cubs can practice all of these skills and get a head start on all you need to know to be a part of Scouts BSA.
