For the first time in Camp Tomahawk history, we now have a pool available to our campers. Keeping with BSA’s Safe Swimming Guidelines, we are designating our swimming areas as “non-swimmer” activity areas so that, regardless of your Scout’s swimming ability, they won’t feel left out. All Scouts will be monitored by multiple lifeguards as well as adult spotters.
Each year the camp offers a rotation that allows the Scouts to take part in a team sport. Activity Leaders are in hand to teach them how to play and to oversee the activity to make sure it is fun for all. In the past, this area has included a scaled-up version of foosball, attack-the-castle, kickball, and more.
STEM has been an important buzzword in the education world for quite some time. Scouting STEM activities compliment the traditional Scout program and encourage kids to explore the world in which they live. We offer exciting, hands-on experiments that make science, technology, engineering and math come alive. From outdoor science experiments through building and launching your own rocket, there’s something your Scout will be interested in!
Using imagination and creativity to inspire your own take-home crafts has always been a part of Camp Tomahawk. Each day, the Scouts are offered the opportunity to get creative in the many activities they take part in. From wood-burning to creating Scout crafts, each scout can get as inventive as they want.
While Camp Tomahawk is a day camp, the fun doesn’t stop in the afternoon each day. For children, new to Scouting, we offer an evening of day camp activities just for our youngest Scouts. The evening is meant to be a little more hands on without the distraction of the older Scouts. On a separate evening, for our Webelos II Scouts, we offer a special ceremony to recognize their Scouting achievements to date and to encourage them to head into Boy Scouts.
