There is no better bargain than Boy Scout Summer Camp.  Compared to other summer programs, Scout Camp delivers an outstanding program, with lifelong value, at a fraction of the cost.


Unlike the fees at many camps in the Northeast Region, the summer camp fee at Rotary Scout Reservation is all-inclusive.  This fee includes all program materials, including items such as shooting sports ammunition and craft kits required for merit badge completion.


Please note that the Regular Fee applies when paid in full by May 1, 2017.  For late Webelos cross-overs, the Regular Fee applies when paid in full by June 15, 2017.  The fees for Summer Camp 2017 at Rotary Scout Reservation are as follows:


LOYALTY UNIT FEE*                $420

For Eligible Units (*See below)


REGULAR CAMP FEE              $450

Paid in full by May 1st


LATE CAMP FEE                      $500

Paid in full after May 1st

We are pleased to announce that units will be able to submit camp payments online.  Further information about this program will be announced soon and will be available here as well as sent to unit leaders.

CAMPERSHIPS

Camperships to attend Summer Camp at RSR are available to Scouts in Twin Rivers Council units who have demonstrated financial need.  Camperships may be used to cover a portion of the Scout’s fee to attend camp, frequently in conjunction with other fundraising opportunities.

SECOND WEEK DISCOUNT FEE

A Scout will be eligible for a reduced second week fee at Rotary Scout Reservation if he has already paid for one week of summer camp at RSR or Camp Wakpominee in 2017.  Attendance at JLTC, NOAC, Jamboree, High Adventure Camps, or non-Twin Rivers Council camps may not be used in conjunction with this discount. 


Please contact Camp Director Brian Murray for details: email: campdirector@rsrbsa.org


ADULT LEADER FEE

It is the policy of the BSA that a minimum of two adult leaders provide supervision for each unit and that there be one adult for every eight boys.  At RSR, these required adult leaders are FREE.  In order to keep costs as low as possible for the Scouts, RSR charges an Adult Leader Fee for each leader beyond the required ratio for unit supervision.  Please use the following chart to determine the Adult Leader Fee for your unit:


  1. # of Youth         # of Free Adults         Each Additional Adult

  2.       1-8                           2                                $100

  3.      9-16                          2                                $100

  4.     17-24                         3                                $100

  5.     25-32                         4                                $100

Eligible units are able to lock in last year's camp fees for this year with the Twin Rivers Council Loyalty Unit Program.  To become eligible, a returning troop must place a campsite deposit of $250 by November 1st.  A $100 deposit for each Scout attending camp is due by March 15th, with the full balance to be paid by May 1st.  Camp fees for Webelos crossovers and new Scouts may be paid at the program rate until June 15th.
