ABOUT CAMP CARPENTER
Adventure awaits you at Camp Carpenter, the home of Cub World. Camp Carpenter located in Manchester offers Cub Scouts many types of activities which may include archery, art and crafts, BB gun shooting sports, field sports, nature, Scout skills and many other themed activities. When visiting Camp Carpenter you will want to be sure to check out Fort Friendship, Pirates Cove, and the Indian Village. Camp Carpenter is where Scouting all begins!

Located on the outskirts of Manchester, New Hampshire, Camp Carpenter is a 250-acre wooded property that is the Daniel Webster Council’s Cub Scout Summer Camp.  The rest of the year it is available for use by Scouting Units and non-profit organizations.

Camp Carpenter consists of nine campsites, 6 Adirondack shelters (lean-tos), 8 unheated cabins and program theme areas.  The Dan Beard Trail follows the camp boundary and Long Pond is suitable for water and boating activities.

The camp can be used for day or overnight activities.  Camping, hiking, fishing, orienteering, cooking as well as snowshoeing, sledding or ice fishing in the winter are some of the many activities that units can take advantage of.  Scouting families can also use the camp facilities.  Consider having a Cub Scout birthday party at Fort Friendship or Pirates Cove.
