2020 CT Rivers Council Scouts BSA Camp Fees

Regularly scheduled summer camp programs have been canceled for 2020. These fees are no longer valid.

The fees to attend week-long Scouts BSA Resident Summer Camp in 2020 are as follows.

Scout Fees

Early Fee: $435
A $50 deposit per Scout camper is due no later than March 15, 2020. If paid in full by May 1, 2020, the fee will be $435; payments received after May 1, 2020 will be charged the regular rate of $460.
Regular Fee: $460
The fee is $460 for payments made between May 1, 2020 and June 15, 2020.
Late Fee: $495
The fee is $495 for payments made after June 15, 2020.

Discounts for Scouts

Encore (2nd week of camp): $335
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 Scouts BSA Camp or National High Adventure Base, and the discount applies to a second (or more) week at one of the Connecticut Rivers Council’s camps.
Sibling Discount:
A $25 discount will be given to help out those families with siblings attending Resident Camp. The discount will apply to each sibling from the same family.

Adult Scouter Fees

Fees for extra Scouters are calculated at $20 per day or $120 for the full 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 $120
11–20 3 $120
21–30 4 $120
31–40 5 $120

Webelos Crossovers & New Scouts — $435

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 15th deposit date, a special registration category will be established for them. This will also include any youth who join the troop as new Scouts between March 15th and the beginning of the troop’s week at camp.


The Connecticut Rivers Council makes an effort to see that all Scouts have the chance to benefit from the programs offered at our three Camps. Should a Scout’s family be in a financial situation where assistance is needed, they may apply for a campership. Please know that camperships do not cover the full cost of registration, and are subject to approval by the Campership Committee.

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.


I don’t know what Scouts in my troop are going to attend camp by the March 15th Early Fee deposit date. Why should I make a deposit for the “unknown”?
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 Scouts you think will be attending. Deposits may later be transferred between Scouts.

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 15th?
Yes, as stated above, campership applicants are always afforded the lowest possible camp fee. Naming them by March 15th helps the Camp Directors in planning for a great summer program.

2020 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 well in advance of the camps opening for the summer. Participants therefore must also be prepared to make a financial commitment to attend.

Refund requests made before June 15th will be reimbursed the fee minus the cancellation fee of $75. Requests after June 15th will be reimbursed the fee minus the cancellation fee of $150.

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