General Information

Any full-time or part-time adult attending Webelos Camp MUST BE a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America. All applications will need to be turned in before your camp session. Due to safety concerns, any non-registered attendees will be asked to return home until registered.

We will only collect the $50.00 non-refundable deposit per full-time scout and full-time adult camper fee at the time of registration in January. You should be prepared to provide the following information when you register for Webelos Camp:

  • The total number of all full-time scout and adult campers your unit is signing-up. Note: Any spots held will be subject to a non-refundable deposit if removed before or on final payment date. Make sure to reserve a realistic number of campers.
  • When registering for camp, you will have the option to Pay Now or Pay Later. Select your method of payment information.
    • Pay Now Option- Credit Card or Debit Card
    • Pay Later Option- Check (If this option is selected, a payment will need to be received in 5 business days to finish registration. If payment is not received in 5 business days, it is not a guarantee the spots will be available.)

Please ensure all youth and adults are registered PRIOR to arriving at Webelos Camp.

Frequently Asked Questions About Webelos Camp
Please click on each question below for the answer. 

Do All Adults have to currently be registered with the BSA?
Both full-time adults and part-time adults attending Webelos Camp must be currently registered members of the BSA. There are no exceptions to this policy. Please ensure all 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.
How many adults must attend Webelos Camp?
At Webelos Camp, only 2-deep leadership per pack is required, more parents may attend, but it is not a required one-on-one camping experience.
How are refunds handled?
See Camping Resources for the refund policy. The $50.00 deposit is non-refundable but transfers within the unit are allowed.
What do I do if a adult is registered with a Troop not the Pack?
Write them in on the roster list with their troop number and then just have them show proof of registration (their BSA registration card) at camp.
What about the Adult Orientation Meetings?
At least one adult from your unit who is camping with you this summer at Webelos camp should attend one of these meetings. The Webelos Leader/Adult’s Guide will be available for pick-up at these meetings.
If one Scout can't go, can another go in his place?
Yes, just let the Council Office (Barbara.Thatsanithone@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.
When is a final roster due?
The final roster is due at the same time as the final payment, April 22, 2020. 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.
What if I'm the only one in my unit that wants to attend Webelos Camp?
Great! For Webelos Camp, we require 2-deep leadership per pack, but if you're the only one that wants to attend Webelos Camp, participants can be paired up with another unit attending the session you choose. Contact Barbara Thatsanithone in the Camping Department at the Council office (Barbara.Thatsanithone@scouting.org) 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 a battery. (We had one adult run his off a battery pack from a computer.)
