  • Online Council Short-term Camp reservations?

    Albeit late, the PLC has decided their program year which the Troop Committee approved. Now to make the reservations. Regarding scout camps, some councils have an online system, some are still usng phone call and/or mail-in reservations. Worse some scout camps are holding off taking reservations on some fall weekends until districts and maybe OA post their camping plans, but that's another topic.

    So can you reserve a weekend campout online with your council?

    I answered #3 because that was the closest. It really doesn't have "problems", but it doesn't have an online payment system. You reserve it online, then either send a check for the reservation or call and give a CC number.

      My council is a big one and has online option. Unless some big event is occurring camping on council properties is not a problem unless you are wanting specific amenities (cabins, treehouses, adirondacks, cub world). Plenty of camporee field and trail camping for free. Having two large properties relatively close helps (5,200 acres 77 miles and 2,600 acres 15 miles).
