Campership Assistance

Campership Assistance for Boy Scout and
Cub Scout Summer Camp


Philosophy

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Council, Boy Scouts of America, believes that no Scout should be prevented from attending summer resident camp because of financial need. We also believe that the Scout should help pay a portion of his own way to camp. Unless extraordinary circumstances exist, we expect that parents or guardians, Troop, and chartering organization will also assist in the funding. And while it is not the intention of the council to completely subsidize a camp fee, we are committed to making the necessary arrangements so that all Scouts can come to camp.
