Summer Camp – First Payment of $200 Due February 21st

The highlight of the scouting year is our week at summer camp at Heritage Scout Reservation in the Laurel Highlands area of Pennsylvania. This year, our week at camp will be July 9-15.

Heritage Reservation has increased its camping fees this year, and is requiring full payment by April 1 to receive the Early Bird discount. The tentative cost to attend summer camp is $400.00 plus the cost of the charter bus which is divided equally amongst all scouts attending summer camp. The total cost is split into three separate payments. Due to uncontrollable costs associated with summer camp, the Scoutmaster reserves the right to increase the overall cost as needed. An initial deposit for summer camp of $200.00 is required to reserve a Scout’s slot and will be due 2/21/17.   This payment to reserve a scout’s camping slot is due for all campers.  Please see the other posts for important clarifications on taking advantage of Early Bird discount.

The second payment of $200.00 is due on 3/21/17. The third and final summer camp payment will be due 5/23/17, final amount to be determined based on the troop’s fundraising efforts.

Please remember our spring Easter Seal’s Clothing Drive, which is scheduled for April 22. This fundraising event helps defray the cost of the summer camp chartered bus. This is a great way to help pay for camp and do some spring cleaning!
