Scout Fees

Early Fee: $405
A $50 deposit per named Scout camper is due no later than Wednesday March 1, 2017. If paid in full by May 15, 2017, the fee will be $405; payments received after May 15, 2017 will be charged a late fee of $50, making the total fee $455.

Discounts for Scouts

Encore (2nd week of camp): $305
The registration process will require the Scout’s other camp/week to be identified. To qualify, a Scout must have already spent a week in a Connecticut Rivers Council Scout Camp, and the discount applies to a second week at one of the Connecticut Rivers Council’s camps.

Adult Scouter Fees

Fees for extra Scouters are calculated at $15 per day/$90 per week. Names of Scouters are not required until May 15. Two Scouters are free. Additional Scouters may be free according to the schedule below:

# of youth per program # of free Scouters all additional adults
5–10 2 $90
11–20 3 $90
21–30 4 $90
31–40 5 $90

Webelos Crossovers & New Scouts

These Scouts are always afforded the lowest possible camp fee rate. Because many troops don’t know what Webelos will be joing their troop until after the March 1 deposit date, a special registration category will be established for them. This will also include any boys who join the troop as new Scouts between March 2 and the beginning of the troop’s week at camp. This registration will be available May 16.

Camperships

The Connecticut Rivers Council is pleased to offer camperships to Scouts who are members of the Connecticut Rivers Council who attend Connecticut Rivers Council Camp. Camperships are subject to available funding. Camperships are the equivalent of a school scholarship but for summer camp. They are awarded based upon financial need as determined by the most recent 1040 tax form. Extenuating circumstances may be considered.

Except on rare occasions, Camperships are NOT granted for amounts greater than 50% of the camp fee. Camperships are awarded for ONE (1) camp session per Scout. Camperships are not transferrable between Scouts. Please file a separate application for EACH individual in a household requesting a Campership (however only one tax form is required to be provided to the council per family).

The deadline for the submissions is April 1st. Any Campership applications received after April 1st (or incomplete campership applications not completed before April 1st) will be put into a pool for consideration of any remaining funds.

Specialty Camp Programs

Registration for all Specialty Camp programs will be accomplished by the individual. These programs will include Trail to Eagle, NRA Shooting Sports, AdVenture Camp, Robotics & Technology, and various other daily or weekend programs.

Payments

All deposits and subsequent payments for camp must be made online through the Connecticut Rivers Council web site. Payments may be in the form of an E-Check or credit card. There is no charge to the unit using this method of payment.

FAQs

Question
I don’t know what Scouts in my troop are going to attend camp by the March 1st Early Fee deposit date. Why should I make a deposit for the “unknown”?
Answer
Camp promotion is a year round process. The unit’s camp plans should already be on the family’s calendars. Units also should have a pretty good idea of the percentage of Scouts in the troop that attends camp. Register and make deposits for that number of named Scouts. Deposits may later be transferred between Scouts.

Question
We know our troop has Scouts that need Campership assistance in order to attend camp. Should we register them with a $50 deposit by March 1st?
Answer
Yes, but not necessarily. As stated above, campership applicants are always afforded the lowest possible camp fee. Naming them by March 2 helps the Camp Directors in planning for a great summer program.
