Refund and Cancellation Policy:
Planning and purchasing for camp happens long before camp begins and is based on your camp reservation. Consequently, refunds are available only under extenuating circumstances which include illness, death in the family, summer school, or other hardships. Refund requests must be submitted in writing.
Hardships do not include family vacations, sports events, or changing one’s mind.
Inclement weather is not a cause for a refund.
Notification must be made to the Camp Director prior to the end of the first day of camp that the Scout will not be in attendance or by contacting the Longhouse Council Office at (315) 463-0201 before the first day of camp.
Refund requests are reviewed and processed at the end of the camping season. No refunds are given at camp.
The Camp Director and Scout Executive will review and approve refund requests on an individual basis.
Refunds are issued to whomever originally paid the registration fee (Unit or Parent).
Camp fees are transferable to other Scouts within his Unit.
It is the responsibility of the unit leadership to understand and abide by this Refund and Cancellation Policy.
Every Scout should have the opportunity to attend summer camp and enjoy the outdoor camping program that is central to Scouting. Longhouse Council makes individual “camperships” available to Cub Scouts who otherwise would not be able to attend camp. The funds for these camperships are managed by Longhouse Council.
Note: Funds available for camperships covered by the application above come from funds restricted for use by members of the Longhouse Council attending Longhouse Council operated summer camp activities: Cub and Webelos Day Camps, Family, and Resident Camps.
Generally, camperships are limited to no more than 50% of the activity cost. Each Scout, his family, his Unit, and his Charter Organization should provide the remainder of the activity cost. Camperships are not transferable or refundable and have no cash value.
Applications must be submitted no later than April 30th. Applications received after April 30th will be reviewed and granted based upon remaining available funds.

High Adventure Base Information
Since its inception, Scouting has been all about exploring and appreciating the wilderness. The Florida National High Adventure Sea Base offers a year-round opportunity to explore a completely different type of wilderness—the underwater wilderness. The Florida Sea Base provides many vehicles to gain access to this underwater wilderness—large sailing vessels, power boats, kayaks, and scuba equipment. Imagine thousands of square miles of underwater coral formations, peaks, valleys, and literally hundreds of different types of colorful fish. Your mask will become a kaleidoscope of colors as you glide effortlessly among pillars of coral and multihued fish. The warm, clear waters of the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, or St. Thomas give you the sensation of weightlessness in this underwater wilderness.
Northern Tier is the BSA’s oldest national High Adventure program, outfitting scouting groups for canoe trips since the summer of 1923. The Charles L Sommers Base has been home to the program since 1941.
North America’s Canoe Country, a vast series of navigable lakes and rivers spanning thousands of square miles, is one of the last great wildernesses on the continent. This boreal forest of waterfalls and bogs, bears and wolves, granite crags and waist-deep mud remains nearly as much of a wilderness as it was for the first fur traders who explored the area in the 1600s. Two centuries after the fur trade’s peak in the early 1800s, our participants still follow in the footsteps of the French-Canadian voyageurs, paddling the same waters and straining over the same portage trails.
Northern Tier is the Boy Scouts of America’s gateway to adventure in the Great Northwoods. In the Summer, scouts from Northern Tier’s three wilderness canoe bases explore millions of acres of pristine lakes, meandering rivers, dense forests and wetlands in Northern Minnesota, Northwest Ontario and Northeast Manitoba. In the winter, Northern Tier is home to the OKPIK Cold-Weather Camping program, the BSA’s premier winter high adventure program. Fall programming is also available.
Whatever your plans, Northern Tier staff will outfit your crew with state-of-the-art camping equipment as well as a highly trained staff member called an “Interpreter.”

Summit Bechtel Reserve:
Situated in the wilds of West Virginia, the Summit Bechtel Reserve is a training, Scouting, and adventure center for the millions of youth and adults involved in the Boy Scouts of America. Summit programs take Scouts and Venturers to the limits of what they think they can do and pushes them further.
It’s home to the National Scout Jamboree, the James C Justice National Scout Camp, the John D. Tickle National Training and Leadership Center, and the Paul R. Christen National High Adventure Base.
The Summit Bechtel Reserve was made possible through the generosity of donors who see the Summit’s adventures, programs, and technological opportunities as vital to addressing the evolving needs of youth.
