2005 Summer Camp Fees

Recommended Posts

Interested to see what various camps around the country are charging for a week at summer camp. I'll start.


Boxwell Reservation (Middle Tennessee Council) charges $140 for in-council scouts that commit before April 1 and $160 thereafter. $25 higher for out of council units. COPE runs about $20 or $25 additional and several of the materials intensive merit badges (craft types, rifle/shotgun, motorboating/skiing) also carry a nominal fee. They also offer high adventure weeks that range from $200 - $250.


It is not my intent to complain about how expensive stuff is. Just interested to see how we stack up with other councils.

Lost Lake Scout Reservation - $200/$215 for early/normal registration. (Clinton Valley Council)


Fee includes food (Sunday dinner, 3 squares MTWThF and Sat. breakfast), and everything else. There are no special fees for aquatic activities, climbing tower, canoeing, etc. The only "extra" fees are for supplies for specific merit badge courses (crafts and shooting sports for shotgun shells). Leaders $40 with 1 free per every 10 scouts approximately. Overall, I think it is a great bargain.

Sounds great to me Sir Scoutalot (love the name)

We are going out of council again this year and the discounted cost is $230 per boy! And this dad counts that as a bargain.

Last resident soccer camp number one son attended cost us $650 plus spending money....

This is the one feature in BSA that is truely a bargain as well as a blessing!


(whew, being nice to BSA is really hard on my system)
