  • We will only collect the $50.00 non-refundable deposit per full-time camper fee up process.  When you submit your roster along with your final payment, you will be able to add part-time Webelos Camp leaders at this time.  You should be prepared to enter the following information when you enter the online Webelos Camp registration page:
    • The total number of all full-time youth and adult campers your unit is signing-up
    • Credit Card or Debit Card payment information or you can also choose the mail check within 5 days option (just follow instructions given at time of sign-up).

  • The 2016 Webelos Camp fees are $150.00 for each Webelos Scout and $150.00 for each leader if paid on or before the final payment date of April 27, 2016.  If your registration is received after April 27, 2016, the camp fee is then $160.00 for each Webelos Scout and each leader registered. The fee for Den Chiefs is $60.00 or $65.00 if paid after April 27, 2016.
  • There are no part-time youth campers at Webelos Camp.
  • All youth campers and adult leaders (both full-time and part-time adult campers) attending Webelos Camp must be currently registered members of the BSA.  There are no exceptions to this policy.  Please ensure all youth and adults are registered PRIOR to arriving at Webelos Camp.  This will make your check-in much smoother and prevent us from asking unregistered campers to go home until they become registered.  Please notify the HOAC Camping Office of any Den Chiefs attending Webelos Camp with your Pack and the Boy Scout Troop with which the Den Chief is registered.
  • The names of all Webelos Scouts and adult leaders attending Webelos Camp along with your final payment will be due on or before April 27, 2016.  Each unit who is signed up for Webelos Camp by March 20, 2016 will receive their unit billing statement and pack roster along with their 2016 Webelos Camp Leader's Guide at the Webelos Leader's Orientation Meeting.  The pack roster and final payment must be submitted on or before April 27, 2016.

Frequently Asked Questions About Webelos Camp

The final roster is due at the same time as the final payment, April 27, 2016. In April, the Webelos Camp primary contact will receive a billing statement and the current camp roster, if there are any changes, submit the Webelos Camp Event Roster (with changes) with the final payment.

How are refunds handled?

See Camping Resources for the new refund policy. The $50.00 deposit is non refundable but transfers within the unit are allowed.

Do All Adults have to currently be registered with the BSA? How many adults have to attend?

At Webelos Camp, only 2-deep leadership is required, more parents may attend, but it is not a required one-on-one camping experience. However, all adults attending Webelos Camp must be currently registered with the BSA.

What do I do if a leader is registered with a Troop not the Pack?

Write them in on the roster list and then just have them show proof of registration (their BSA registration card) at camp.

What about the Leader Orientation Meetings?

At least one leader from your unit who is camping with you this summer at Webelos camp should attend one of these meetings.

If one Scout can't go, can another go in his place?

Yes, just let the Council Office (christi.boyer@scouting.org) know of any changes to the roster, or submit changes with the final payment (see below). There is no penalty for switching one Scout for another.

What Health Form do I need to attend Webelos Camp?

The Annual Health and Medical Record with parts A and B completed is the appropriate form. It can be found here: Annual Health and Medical Form.

Does a doctor need to sign the health form?

No. Only sections A & B need to be filled out. No doctor signature is necessary as Webelos Camp is under 72 hours.

How are Campership monies handled?

Submit the Campership application to the Council Service Center. Once the Campership money has been applied, it will go towards the Webelos Camp bill for the unit. Go to the Camping Resource page to print a Campership form. (Please note the 2016 Campership form will be available January 2016)

When is a final roster due?

The final roster is due at the same time as the final payment, April 27, 2016. In April, the Webelos Camp primary contact will receive a billing statement and the current camp roster, if there are any changes, submit the Webelos Camp Event Roster (with changes) with the final payment.

When are final payments due?

Due no later than April 27, 2016. If payment isn't made by that date, there will be a $10 late fee charged for each reservation.

What if I'm the only one in my unit that wants to attend Webelos Camp?

Great! We encourage units to sign up together, but if you're the only one that wants to attend Webelos Camp, participants should camp with another unit attending the session you choose. Contact your District Executive or the Camping Dept. at the Council office and we will get you camping!

What are the swimming requirements?

The BSA swimmer requirements can be found in the Webelos Scout Book.

Do the campsites have an electrical outlet nearby for my CPAP machine?

There are electrical outlets in the Pavilion where these campers can sleep, although it is without a tent and the cot is in the open. The best idea is to run it off of a battery. (We had one adult run his off a battery pack from a desktop computer.)
