Question: What if a Scout becomes ill or has to attend summer school?

Answer: Partial refunds will be considered for medical reasons or summer school. No refunds are given for playing sports.
Medical cancellations will require a doctor’s note; summer school cancellations will require a note from the guidance
counselor or other school official. A cover note needs to accompany the doctor or school note detailing the Scout’s name,
village and session they were planning to attend. Phone number and address must also be on the cover letter. The $30
initial deposit per person is NON-REFUNDABLE under any circumstance. After June 30, contract commitments increase
the non-refundable fee to $50 per person regardless of the reason for the cancellation.

Question: What if a Cub Scout cannot afford the fee?

Answer: Campership applications are available through the Camping Department (241-8545) at the Scout Servicenter.
Campership awards are based on need. A Cub Scout who needs financial assistance is generally asked to pay at least
one-half the fee through fund-raisers, personal or family resources, and/or the den or pack.


Question: What if I can’t go with my pack or no one else from my pack can attend?

Answer: Come anyway. Cub Scout/parent teams often sign up separately from their pack because they cannot come to the
session selected by their pack. As you may expect, they quickly become friends with other members of their Village. Some boys arrange to meet their new friends at the same session the following year.

Question: What if a Cub Scout wants to go, but his parent cannot go?

Answer: A great opportunity for a grandfather or other adult family member to go to Adventure Camp with the Cub Scout!! The Cub Scout can also come with another adult who is approved by the Cub Scouts parent and the pack, subject to the adult to youth supervision requirement. The adult to youth supervision requirement is one adult for each four (4) youth in a Village.

Question: Can older and younger Cub Scouts go to the same Village?

Answer: Yes, while programs are generally oriented towards a certain age level in each Village, the Village and Program staff
will make adjustments to program based on the ages of Cub Scouts attending the Village. However, the Mountain Man
program is designed for 2nd year Webelos, so this Village should be restricted to that age group.
