Cub & Webelos Overnight Camp at Henson Scout Reservation




It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 summer camp season at Henson Scout Reservation and Rodney Scout Reservation.  Our team has worked tirelessly with the local, state, and county governments to ensure we could operate camps safely.  We built a plan that would have enabled us to follow all of the guidance of the National BSA and the CDC.  We were able to modify the program with consideration of the safety of our campers and to ensure the quality of programs that customers of our Del-Mar-Va Council camps have come to expect.   Unfortunately, the Governor of Maryland has restricted resident youth camps to operate only for Maryland youth at this time.  This restriction means that we cannot serve all the Scouts in our council and it would also keep us from serving troops from surrounding councils who are our longstanding campers at Henson and Rodney.  We used amazing creativity to overcome nearly every obstacle presented us this summer, but the restriction to out of state campers was the one thing we couldn’t fix.  Opening our camps without being able to welcome our whole Scouting family just wouldn’t be right. 

We will miss you this summer, and we can’t wait to welcome you back next season.  After shaking off the disappointment of this season’s cancellation, our staff will immediately dive into planning for next season with zeal and you can count on it being the best experience you have had in our camps yet!

We offer the following options for your consideration:

  1. 2020 Scouts BSA Virtual Summer Experience – a fun educational summer program where every Scout can attend up to five-week-long Merit Badge courses or rank requirement lessons over the course of the month.
    For information please go to the registration page

  2. Sign up now for 2021 Summer Camp and we will freeze your rate at the 2020 cost.

  3. You can request a refund of your balance.

You can notify us of your choice of options by clicking here.

Details about family camping and unit weekend camping will soon be available on our council website.

We appreciate your patience as we navigated all of this and we apologize for what we are not able to offer the usual summer camp experience to your scouts.  We waited as long as we could with the fervent hope that we’d be able to open our gates and spend time with you this summer, but it was just not meant to be this year.  If you have questions, please feel free to reach out by calling 302-622-3300 or emailing






  • The ENTIRE pack can come together on Friday and camp together. Tigers, Wolves, and Bears will check out on Sunday, while the Webelos and Arrow of lights will stay for two more nights.
  • Cubs families may also sign up WITHOUT THEIR PACK. Packs with less than 5 Cubs & 5 Parents won't be charged a site fee.
  • Fewer vacation days are required for adults staying with the Webelos because the program runs over the weekend
  • Complete Program overhaul! Packs will create their own schedule!

  • Packs will design and register for their own unique program by choosing from a wide variety of programs, advancements, and fun activities
  • As within the past, if families can’t attend the session that the Pack is planning to, they are encouraged to register themselves for another session. It is not a requirement to attend with the Pack.
  • If a Pack is strictly interested in advancement they can fill their adventure with rank specific advancements. If a Pack is interested in just having as much fun as possible, they can fill their week with swimming, shooting, climbing, and fishing! The Pack’s schedule is solely dependent on what the Packs want to do and when they want to do it.
  • This format will require more planning prior to attending camp as Packs will have to decide on a schedule and register for it on the website.
