Cub Residence Camp–July 27-30, 2017

Folklore Days

Tom Sawyer days is this year’s summer Cub Scout residence camp in the Allohak Council. Since 1922, Huck Finn Island (Camp Kootaga) has been committed to the idea that every child should experience carefree, constructive outdoor activities. Camp Kootaga, part of the George A. Stevenson Scout Reservation, lies along the Hughes River in Wirt County, WV and is 18 miles from Parkersburg, WV on State Route 47. The reservation encompasses over 634 acres of hilly woodlands, which makes it a natural environment for the outdoor activities of Cub Scouting and provides acres of wilderness to live out adventures.

We pride ourselves on our ability to select, train, and support amazing camp counselors, many of whom were once campers themselves. It is these counselors’ ability to create new and exciting adventures for the group and to listen and connect with campers as individuals that keeps kids coming back to camp year-after-year.

Camp Kootaga creates lifelong memories by providing fun-filled days where children feel happy and safe.
