Camp Carpenter Cub World
Camp Carpenter, located in Manchester, NH, is the home of Daniel Webster Council's Cub World. The Daniel Webster Council offers first-class resident camping opportunities to Cub Scout-age boys (entering grades 2-5 in September).
Resident camp is held in seven five-day sessions at Camp Carpenter Cub World. Boys may attend resident camp with their pack (this is called chartered camping) or individually (this is called provisional camping). Check with your pack's leaders to see which session your pack is attending resident camp and sign-up through your pack's camp coordinator. If your pack is attending on a week when your son can't go or if your pack isn't attending, you may register him as a provisional camper.
Camp Carpenter is also the home of Lawrence L. Lee Scouting Museum and Max I. Silber Library. Camp Carpenter is used by Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers throughout the year for camping, training and many other activities. Off-season (non-summer) reservations for use of the camp can be made through the Daniel Webster Council Service Center.
Rules for acceptance and participation in the Scouting program are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, handicap or national origin.
Our goal is to provide a complete camping experience for all our campers. To aid us in accomplishing this goal, we ask all our applicants to inform us of any disabilities or impairments. We use this information to establish appropriate supervision and to insure that potential accommodations are available.
The Boy Scouts of America and the State of New Hampshire approve Daniel Webster Council camps.
