Summer Camp Fees

Camper Fees

  May 1, 2017 or before After May 1, 2017
Camper Attending with Troop or Provisional $385  $410
Encore Camper  $385 $385

Scouts who join the troop after the early bird deadline (Webelos, etc) will only be charged the early bird fee.

Provisional Troop is for Scouts not attending when their home troop attends, or attending additional week(s) before or after their home troop attends camp. The camp staff provides qualified adult leadership for the Provisional Troop. A Scout who has already paid to attend camp during weeks 2-7 will be given the encore rate for Provisional during week 1. 

Encore campers are those who have attended camp for one week and want to return for additional week(s) of camp.

Adult Leader Fees

Two adult leaders are required to be in camp at all times with every unit; two adult leaders therefore may attend Camp Wanocksett for free. Additional free adults are offered to units based upon the number of youth in camp. Other additional adults may spend the week in camp at a significant discount.
