Camperships are open to youth from families with financial circumstances would mean that a high-quality residential camp experience would be unattainable without external financial support.  The specific financial circumstances of the family will determine whether they are eligible for full or partial support.

 

To be eligible, the following guidelines must be met by the youth applicant:

 

  • Register within the LaSalle Council and in good standing for at least 30 days prior to completing an application.

  • Youth attending a LaSalle Council operated summer camp to include Day Camp, Cub Scout Resident Camp, Webelos Resident Camp or Scouts BSA Resident Camp.

  • Youth attending an official La Salle Council, District, Area or National training conference, for example, NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training)

  • Recommended by his or her unit leader to include Committee Chair, Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Advisor or parent/guardian.

 

In keeping with the philosophy of “pay your own way”, each youth should pay a portion of the fee.  Camperships are awarded based primarily on need.  The more information the campership committee has about the Scout’s particular need, the better. The La Salle Council also reserves the right to consider the unit’s participation in Council administered product sales as demonstrating a concerted effort to raise these funds. The family and unit should also contribute to the cost of the camp experience.  Camperships awarded will not exceed 50% of the event fee.

Applying for campership aid must be done by June 5th  to allow time for review and response. If approved, the campership amount will be sent to the camp or to the National Conference when registration of the individual is confirmed. Fees will be credited as camp payment in the Scout’s name within the La Salle Council Summer Camp Reservations portion of its website. The campership is to a specific individual and is not transferable to other youth.
