Weekend Camping Information & Resources

Unit, family and out-of-council reservations begin on June 1st of each year for the Fall of the current year and for the Winter and Spring of the following year. 

Keys will be sent to the person who registered along with the roster to be completed and returned with the keys. A $25.00 key deposit is due upon registration and will be returned once we receive the keys and roster.

No refunds will be given if a Unit does not show without notification prior to 30 days of the camp date. (Unless the facility is rented by another group.)
