Payment Schedule and Refunds 


Payment Schedule:

Camp fee payments occur in three steps:

  2.  A commitment payment of $50 per Scout is made by February 15 to continue to hold a reservation.
  3. Balance:
  • To qualify for the Early Bird discount, the balance is due by April 30.
  • If not taking advantage of the Early Bird Discount, the balance is due by May 30, 2018.

Making Changes to Reservation:

Make changes to your reservation in writing.  Include the unit number, reservation number, changes requested, name of person requesting the changes and phone number.  It is necessary to have your request in writing to ensure that your reservation is correct.

Refund Policy:

Planning and purchasing for camp happened long before camp begins and is based on your reservation of space at camp. Consequently, refunds are made as follows:

  1. Cancellations on or before April 30: all fees paid, less the $250 deposit are transferrable.
  2. Between April 30 and May 30, all fees paid, less the $250 deposit, and the $50 per scout deposit are transferrable.
  3.  After May 15, no refunds are made unless the one of the following is met:
  •  There is a death or serious illness in immediate family.
  •  The individual becomes ill and is unable to attend camp.

Refund Requests will be reviewed by the Camping Committee, if a refund is given; it will be for 50% fees due. Refund checks are mailed in early November and will be made out to the Unit Leader.

Requesting a Refund:

Units may request a refund using the Refund Request Form up to 2 week prior to camp, submit this form to the Council Office.  No refunds will be granted within two weeks of weeks.  

FOS Rebate:

The Great Southwest Council units who participate in Friends of Scouting and reach their unit goal by April 15, unit leaders will receive a notification letter. This letter will indicate that your unit is eligible for a 10% rebate (your unit is still responsible for paying the full fee by the deadline). For those units that qualify for the Pacesetter recognition (achieving their unit goal by February 6th), their units will be eligible for a 15% rebate. By providing a copy of the notification letter at check-in, a rebate check will be provided to your unit at Thursday night’s Leader Steak Dinner.
