Scouts BSA Summer Camp 2024

Merit Badge Counselor - Southern Sierra Council

New for 2024 – 2 weeks to choose from!

Are you looking for a program for your older Scouts? Take a look at our Scouts BSA Merit Badge Camps or register for our First Year Program. Come to camp each day or stay for the week. The choice is yours!

Registration Information

Who Registers?

Each unit can make only one registration per camp session. Only one person, the Unit Registrar, should manage the registration, enter information, and make payments on behalf of the unit. (Parents should contact their unit registrar to register their youth to go to camp.)

Password?

There are two options for creating a registration: make an account or continue as a guest. Regardless, you’ll still be able to access your registration, either by logging into your account, through your confirmation email, or by using the Lookup Registration feature on the event sign up page.

Leaders Required

All Cub Scout units must provide adult leadership at camp. Youth(s) attending The Scouts BSA week may attend as part of Provisional units during Specialty Week.

Reserve Your Spot

To reserve your unit’s spot, the unit registrar needs to enter their unit information and pay for one youth camper.

Adding Campers

Add campers to your roster only when you are ready to pay for them. The registrar does not need to know exactly how many people are coming to reserve space at camp. Additional attendees can be added as youth and adults commit. (The registrar will receive an email that gives further details AFTER the first payment is made.)

Free Adult Policy

Volunteer Leaders: Any unit registration for our Resident Weekend sessions will be eligible for 2 Free adults.

Troops sending 5+ Scouts to our Scouts BSA Week will be eligible for 1 Free Adult.

Camperships

If you plan on applying for a campership for a youth, please DO NOT pay the full amount right away. Voucher codes will be sent out after camperships are awarded.

See below to Apply Now

Camperships & Vouchers

If you have a voucher code for a campership or some other program, like popcorn, make sure the Scout’s name and unit match those from the application. If they are bridging into Scouts and you need to update the unit information, please let us know.

Adult Requirements

All Scouts attending summer programs at Camp Snyder must be chaperoned by either their own adult family member or a leadership team from their Scout unit. We welcome parents, trained Scout leaders, and Den Chiefs to attend camp with their Scouts. Per BSA National policy, those attending camp must maintain the appropriate BSA registrations and Youth protection training.

Camperships

The National Capital Area Council Campership Funds are possible because of great donors. A special thank you to the Augustine and Dixon family for sharing their resources for Scouts in need. The Campership Committee will convene and make award designations. Please submit this application before registering your Scout for camp online and before paying the Scout’s camp fees. Voucher codes will be sent out after camperships are awarded.

The financial aid request deadline is ongoing. Requests received can only be considered if funds are still available.
