Let imaginations soar at Camp Tuckahoe’s Cub World, where boys turn into Old West cowboys, medieval knights, and swashbuckling pirates—all before lunch. Above, Cub Scouts do their best Huck Finn impressions as they work their raft around Memory Lake, a fine substitute for the Mississippi River.
– The raft is one of a dozen interactive opportunities for boys at the Cub World, which is located about a half-hour from Harrisburg, Pa. Here’s what else you’ll find:
– A frontier fort and a medieval castle that dwarf anything you’d experience at your local playground. Leaders, you’ll appreciate that each facility is a year-round cabin for 40, complete with a full kitchen, showers, and a heated sleeping area.
– A pirate ship, one of Camp Tuckahoe’s most-visited spots, lets Cub Scouts take to the high seas from the safety of dry land. Inside, there’s room for 20 mateys to rest their heads.
– Other must-see sites include a Native American village that sleeps nine, a tree house that offers sweeping views of nature at the camp, a simulated underground mine, and ranges for archery and BB guns.
