Policies and Procedures

Refund and Cancellation Policy:

Planning and purchasing for events happens long before the event begins. Consequently, no refunds will be issued except for medical issues or summer school. Refund requests must be submitted in writing by August 31st with proper documentation. Any youth reservation paid or non-paid, that does not attend camp will be charged a nonrefundable camp fee if they are not replaced on the roster. (Fees vary by camp.) 

Refund requests are reviewed and processed at the end of the camping season. No refunds are given at camp. Partial refunds are made out to units, not individuals unless signed up as a provisional scout.


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.
