We have early bird-pricing and camperships but haven't adopted a published Tier price structure for summer camp. How well is this working for scouts, the program, and camps? ...Tier A represents the true cost of camp for a scout. Tier B is partially a subsidized rate, marking the halfway point between Tiers A and C. Tier C is a heavily subsidized rate meant to be competitive with other camps. Each tier receives the same benefits and opportunities during camp, but Dave Plond, scout executive for the Overland Trails Council of Boy Scouts of America said it’s a way for families who can afford to pay the entire cost of their scout’s camp experience to do so. While Plond said they expect most campers to pay the Tier C rate, Tiers A and B were included in the list of prices as an option for families with the financial means to contribute more. He hopes the move also brings awareness to the true costs of camp and encourage families with the means to provide additional assistance to the council. Besides the competition factor, Plond said, the main reason to not simply increase camp costs is to make sure local scouts have an option for attending camp. Camps are an essential element of the scouting program. http://www.hastingstribune.com/news/officials-making-changes-to-help-keep-iconic-camp-augustine-open/article_8b6e4078-d5fb-11e8-94c9-e33d3ad6d2de.html https://overlandtrailscouncil.com/camping/summer-camp/summer-camp-pricing/
