On December 1, 2018 starting at 10:00AM CT, registration for Cub Scout & Webelos Summer Camp will open. This year’s registration process will be different in a few ways. In past years, we’ve held a physical event where unit leaders and/or camp coordinators would come to a specific location to sign-up for camp. This year we’re transitioning to an online registration event versus an in-person registration event. So the main question: How will my unit sign-up to attend Cub Scout and Webelos Resident Camp in 2019?
- After 10:00AM CT on December 1, 2018, the unit’s registration contact will need to log onto an internet connect computer or device and navigate to www.baylakescamps.org
- Along the top of the Bay-Lakes Council Camps website is a tan menu bar. Hover over “Make a Reservation.”
- A drop down menu will appear with the names of our summer camps. Select the camp that a registration needs to be made for.
- Click the blue “Register” button towards the top of the screen.
- Select the session that will be the unit’s first preference.

Parent Portal – A New Feature for the 2019 Summer Camp Season
Parent portal allows the unit’s registration contact to provide the parents in the unit with access credentials, so they can make payments and complete data entry for their scouts. Here is how it works:
- Navigate to www.baylakescamps.org.
- Along the top of the page, select “Access Existing Registration.”
- Enter your registration contact’s email address and your registration number. The registration number can be found in the confirmation email sent to your registration contact, from when your unit initially made the registration.
- Click “Login.”
- You will now be on the “Summary” tab of your registration.
- Click on ‘Parent Portal’ tab on the top right of the page.
- Click the “Use Parent Portal” checkbox, which automatically generates a set of login credentials for each attendee on the unit registration.
- Next click the “Parent Portal Credentials” button, which generates a report showing each set of login credentials. This report can be printed on Avery 5395 labels or to standard paper and cut into cards.
- If you want to prevent parents from making payment or seeing the event fees, check the “Prevent parents from making payments or seeing event fees” checkbox. Parents will not see any financial details or be able to apply payments.
- When a parent makes a payment, both you and they will receive an email notification of the payment.
- Check the “Send me a registration summary email” checkbox to receive a summary email showing the amount paid and data entry status. Use the day’s checkboxes to determine which day(s) you want to receive the summary email. The email will show the payment status and required data entry field status for each attendee. For example, if first and last name are required fields and an attendee has not completed those, you will see that it has not been completed yet.
