2018 CT Rivers Council Boy Scout Camp Fees

The fees to attend week-long Boy Scout Resident Summer Camp in 2018 are as follows.

Scout Fees

Early Fee: $415
A $50 deposit per named Scout camper is due no later than Wednesday March 7, 2018. If paid in full by May 15, 2018, the fee will be $415; payments received after May 15, 2018 will be charged a late fee of $50, making the total fee $465.
Regular Fee: $440
A $50 deposit per named Scout added to your camp roster after March 7, 2018. If paid in full by May 15, 2018, the fee will be $440. Payments received after May 15, 2018 will be charged a late fee of $50, making the total fee $490.

Discounts for Scouts

Encore (2nd week of camp): $315
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 Boy Scout Camp or National High Adventure Base, 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 $18 per day/$100 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 $100
11–20 3 $100
21–30 4 $100
31–40 5 $100

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 joining their troop until after the March 7 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 7 and the beginning of the troop’s week at camp. This registration will be available May 16.

Camperships

The Connecticut Rivers Council will continue to award camperships to assist Scouts in need of funds to attend camp who might not otherwise do so. The annual campership fund is limited and fluctuates from year to year. Similar to Webelos crossovers and new Scouts, campership Scouts will also be afforded the lowest possible rate to attend camp. The unit process for paying for these Scouts is to be determined.

Specialty Camp Programs

Registration for all Specialty Camp programs will be accomplished by the individual. These programs will include Trail to Eagle 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 7th 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 7th?
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.

2018 Connecticut Rivers Council Summer Camp Refund Policy

The Connecticut Rivers Council must commit financial resources to purchase equipment, hire staff, and otherwise prepare to provide the high quality programs in our camps they have come to be expected well in advance of the camps opening for the summer. Participants therefore must also make a financial commitment to attend. Refund requests made before June 15th will be for the amount paid minus the cancellation fee of $75. Requests after June 15th will be for the amount paid minus $125.

All requests for refund consideration are to be in writing and sent either in the form of a letter or email to:
