2021 Summer Camp Guides

Going to camp, especially for the first time, is something that our Scouts remember for the rest of their lives.  The Bay-Lakes Council is preparing for a very special 2021 camping season now and we would like your help to create that once in a lifetime experience for our Scouts.  We wanted you to know that we are planning a 100 year celebration of Scouting in the Bay-Lakes Council at each camping session.  We hope that each Scout and their families will remember the “opening night” celebration for years to come.  In the Bay-Lakes Council, our volunteers provide the direction and leadership for our council and district programing. We are asking that you contact us with your thoughts and ideas regarding 2021.  Please use the 2021 Leadership Guides to plan your units adventure for next summer.  Please contact me with your thoughts and ideas on what you would like to see at our Bay-Lakes Council camps.  Your help and leadership will make a big difference and your thoughts are very important.

Yours in Scouting,

  2. All removals and cancellations are subject to our refund schedule & policy. The refund schedule and policy are non-negotiable.
ALL FEE PAYMENTS (deposits & balance) ARE NON-REFUNDABLE TO THE BALANCE OF YOUR ACCOUNT. Bay-Lakes Council camps must commit financial resources to employ staff, purchase food, supplies and prepare for summer operations.  Participants are, therefore, required to make a financial commitment to attend.
 
Be conservative in making reservations to avoid losing fees due to cancellations. Keep in mind that additional youth and adult participants can be added after your reservation is confirmed and 1 week prior to your arrival at camp.
 
Exceptions Include: Extreme family emergencies or documented medical circumstances.
