Summer Camp at Jack Nicol Cub Camp

The Jack Nicol Cub Scout Camp was dedicated in 2001 as a Cub Scout Resident Camp, owned and operated by the Longs Peak Council, Boy Scouts of America. Camp Nicol consists of 3 major themed program areas; Fort Unfug, Castle Walker and the Everitt Seaport.  These facilities are designed to inspire the imaginations of our Cub Scout aged campers.  As a Cub Scout Resident Camp, we offer age appropriate programs that are not necessarily designed for rank advancement, but at the end of your stay you will realize just how much your son has accomplished. Our goal is for Scouts and their adult partners to have a rewarding outdoor camping experience, in a safe, FUN and Scout appropriate environment.

Campers at Camp Nicol stay in 2 person canvas wall tents on wooden platforms with 2 canvas cots (there are 5 tents and a picnic table in each site). Individual hot showers are available at either of the 2 shower facilities which also house sink rooms. Camp Nicol has a number of latrines (sorry no flush toilets) each has wash sinks and drinking water. All of your meals are served cafeteria style in the beautiful Tointon Dining Hall. In addition to our “Kid Friendly” menu there is a large salad bar. Everything you need for all of the programs is supplied: from BBs and Archery, to craft items, to Frisbees for a round of Disc Golf. You will be greeted by a staff trained to handle your needs. That includes a medic that is certified to handle our medication distribution at meal times. The camp Trading Post is stocked with camp t-shirts, caps, water bottles and basic camp supplies. We also offer snacks and drinks and it is the place to pick up your shooting sports patches and extra glow stuff for the Light Parade.
