Council and District Camping Information
There are a few changes for 2014 camping
All WEBELOS Adventure Camp and Cub Scout Day Camp registration will be completed online. There is no need to drive to the Scout Shop to register.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. on January 6, 2014, instead of the first business day of the year. The preferred method of registration is on-line, but you can contact Sherry Webb at (317) 813-7117 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Along with a small price increase there will be a $10 premium fee for the June camping dates at Belzer Day Camp. June fees are $125 (Early Bird) and $135 (Regular) July fees are $10 less District Day Camp fees are $70 (Early Bird) and $80 (Regular) WAC fees are $140 (Early Bird) and $150 (Regular) Boy Scout Summer Camp will change little except a small increase in prices: $230 (Early Bird) and $240 (Regular). Adventure Point at Camp Ransburg is $35 less. There is no June Premium fee for Krietenstein or Ransburg. Paddle boarding and SCUBA programs will be offered at Camp Krietenstein in 2014.
The Council has noticed the number of troops (traditionally about 35 troops) who wait overnight to be first in line for Summer Camp sign-up. There will be a new process to make sign-up fairer for everyone. This new process/program is not yet finalized, but it will be implemented soon. If a troop feels that it has a need for certain campsites or weeks due to Scout mobility issues, unit size (50 or more scouts) or adults only able to attend during certain weeks they can forward their request to Ted Klick or Mary Carrico at the Scout Shop by April 15, 2014. The staff will evaluate your request and may reserve your selected date and/or campsite before open registration begins on May 1, 2014. These are the only reasons an early registration will be considered.
Camping packets for Packs
Troops and Crews were available November 9, 2013 at Pow Wow. After that date, Cub Packs - contact Troy Crum (email@example.com) and Troops/Crews - contact Doug Newlin (firstname.lastname@example.org). Unit Commissioners please contact Troy or Doug for your units' packets and help us deliver them and encourage camping which is vital to the BSA program.
