REFUND POLICY—BOY SCOUT SUMMER CAMP

Camp fees are non-refundable with the exception of  genuine hardships and/or emergencies (family moves out of council, immediate family death, serious illness, etc.).  Refund procedures are as follows:

  • The Unit Leader must request any refunds in writing citing full details and including written  statements from the Scout and/or his family when possible. Please do not submit family requests directly to the Council without a Scoutmaster’s recommendation/approval.  This policy is to prevent duplicate requests being submitted
  • The initial $75 non-refundable deposit will not be refunded.
  • Maximum refunds (monies in excess of the $75 initial payment) are available in the case of families moving out of council prior to camp or in other cases of genuine hardship on a case-by-case basis.  Paperwork must be submitted two weeks prior to the scheduled camp session.
  • Other refund requests received in writing prior to the Troop’s departure from camp may receive up to one-half of any funds received in excess of the $75 initial payment and will be at the discretion of the Camping Committee.
  • Refund requests received after a Troop’s departure from camp will not be granted.
  • All refunds will be made to Troops only, following the Camping Committee review in September.
  • Scouts sent home for disciplinary reasons forfeit all refunds.
