Troops are welcome to submit a request for a campsite up to
three months in advance of the date. If the unit requested is not
available someone will contact you as soon as possible. You will
receive a confirmation packet via
e-mail to confirm your
reservation, within two weeks. If reservation needs to be cancelled,
a camping credit will be issued. If the request to cancel is received
within eight weeks of the arrival date, no credit, refund or transfer
will be given.
Troops should submit the Troop Camp Reservation Request Form with
their top three dates and units. We will do our best to place the
troop in their first choice.
Other information for Troop Camping/Rentals:
Before a troop can stay overnight on camp property in a
self-contained facility (lodge style, everyone in the same building),
someone in the troop must complete the Be Safe, Be Ready online
courses. There are two parts to this online training – Outings and
Overnights and Girl Planning. After completion, the leader will
receive an Overnight License.
In order to build a fire and cook marshmallows or a meal, a Cook
Out License is required. Earn it by first holding an Overnight
License and then attending the Fire Building and Outdoor Cooking
Troops planning to pitch and sleep in tents OR to camp at a
non-council facility will need a Camp License. Requirements are
that you hold the Overnight and Cook Out Licenses and complete the
Tenting skills course.
Questions about these certifications and courses can be directed here.
