CUB SCOUT CAMP - Programs
At the archery, BB and sling shot range, boys and girls get to perfect their shooting sports skills. With a focus on safety, these activities take place under the guidance of a BSA certified instructor who ensures proper handling and technique.
Nature classes are held at the Nature Education Center located at the entrance of our Wilderness & Conservation Area with more than 5 miles of hiking trails and lakes and streams. The Nature Program offers hands on experiences in the natural sciences and offers opportunities for campers to explore on their own with access to the NEC’s educational resources, specimens, books, field guides and more!
A favorite activity area at camp, our 1/2 mile long creek provides endless opportunities for outdoor fun and adventure. From cray fish to salamanders, dam building to bridge construction, Boat Races to panning for gold, campers enjoy getting wet and muddy when they explore in the creek. Water shoes must be worn to enter the creek area.
Outdoor Skills & Scoutcrafts
The Scoutcraft area at Camp Seton is where many “Scout Skills” are taught. What are Scout Skills? Everything from campfire cooking, map and compass work to shelter building and water hikes.
Older Cub Scouts (age 9 and up) use their agility and strength to scale our 40 foot climbing tower . All Scouts can try their skills on our Bouldering Wall.
Your child will participate in recreational swim sessions in our pool under the supervision of Red Cross certified lifeguards. Every child takes a BSA "swim check" which determines his ability in the water.
Campers use their angling skills in Seton's lakes and streams which are stocked with trout, sunfish, and the elusive small-mouthed bass. Campers may bring their own fishing gear or use poles and equipment (and worms!) supplied by us.
Sports and Games
Camp Seton sport facilities includes a basket court, 3 sport fields, and game room. Sporting activities include basketball, volleyball, kickball, badminton, frisbee golf, 4-square, GaGa ball, and relay races. Campers can also relax with one of our board games in the Pray Building or on the shaded porch.
Boating & Canoeing
Lake Hillegas provides an ideal setting for row boats and canoes. Under the watchful eyes of certified instructors and lifeguards, campers can explore the lake and practice their boating skills. All boaters wear Coast Guard certified Personal Flotation Devices.
Campfire & Special Events
This program is under review as we are receiving guidance from the State of CT. Campers and staff who return to Camp Seton each summer look forward to our weekly campfire and special events. Themed days, special guests and our campfire with awards and skits are some of the activities that make Camp Seton so much fun. Our annual favorites include a visit from the Greenwich Fire Department and the Seton Boat Races.
