The Magness Adventure Camp is our Council Cub Scout overnight camping facility and is located at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch. In 2011, there will be 12 three day, two night sessions for Cub Scouts, leaders and families. While packs are encouraged to come as a group, many parents and boys choose to attend camp as a family. Either method is good as long as your son attends summer camp.
Magness Adventure Camp offers a unique age-specific, grade appropriate, exciting program for all Cub Scouts and their families who attend. Campers have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs including sports, handicrafts, nature, swimming, boating, and a whole lot more. Some of what we do is advancement oriented, but most activities are just done for fun. Siblings, age 6 and up may participate in all camp activities.
The camp is located among the ponderosa pines of the Black Forest, 60 miles southeast of Denver, near the town of Elbert. We offer a first class facility as well as an abundance of activities for families. Some activities may not be appropriate for children under 6 years old.
You'll sleep in a comfortable tent featuring two beds with pads. An extra sleeping pad for a third person or campers under the age of 5 can be checked out from the staff, if needed. Tents sit on concrete pads and you can close them at night for privacy. Modern and heated bathroom facilities include private hot showers and flush toilets. Bathrooms are wheelchair accessible. Webelos Scouts, rising fourth and fifth graders, are encouraged to bring their own tent as part of the program. Tents can be provided if needed. Meals will be prepared and served from the new Coors Commissary.
The total fee per Cub Scout and non-Scout youth is $90.00 if paid in full by March 31st. Adult fee is $70. Children 5 and under attend free of charge. The fee will be $100 for those participants who pay their fee in full by April 30th. After April 29th, the fee is still $100, but you will not be able to qualify for the free Magness T-shirt.
