Camperships:

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.
