Send a Den And Save
If eight boys from the same Pack comes to one of the day camps and an approved adult leader attends all of the camp with them, the adult leader receives a $200 stipend and the remaining seven boys each receive a $25 refund off of their camp fee! At the resident camps the leader is charged ½ price of the youth fee.

Can Scouts Serve As Den Leaders?
Boy Scouts who are at least 14 years old may serve as a Den Chief at the day camps for the summer of 2014. They must be approved by the camp director and will be asked to sign a contract. Den Chiefs will be required to attend day camp staff training and are expected to be in attendance for all five days of the weekly session. Den Chiefs receive a $100 credit towards their Camp Read tuition, which must be used during the 2014 summer season. Any Boy Scout interested in this position should fill out a Cub Summer Camps staff application, available below.

 

Family Opportunities
Parent volunteers are needed at all day camps. Parents are trained and serve as assistants and guides. As an incentive for parents, when the parent is approved by the camp director, pays the full fee for their son, attends one day of staff training and the entire week of camp, he/she will receive a $200 stipend per week volunteered to off set the cost of camp for his/her son. We also offer care for siblings ages three and above. Check the line on the application to receive additional information.

Cub Camp Staff Application

 

Camp Safety and Certifications
The safety of each camper is paramount to our staff. All staff receive training, and staff in key positions must complete courses run by the Boy Scouts of America. Each camp is certified annually by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America and by the New York State Health Department.

 

Are Scholarship Funds Available?
Yes, the Council has funds available which are awarded based on need. An application which is available below or from the council office is required. The application must be completed by both the parents and the unit leader. Unless the need is very high, most scholarships awarded are a portion of the fee.
