General Information

Our Camps offer some of the finest outdoor experiences a Scout, his friends, and parents can enjoy anywhere, and here’s why:

Staff

Each of our Camping programs is administered by a Nationally Certified Camp Director and all key staff are trained in their areas of responsibility. Our staff members are carefully selected and reflect the principles of Scouting.

Facilities

All of our camps feature facilities in natural surroundings. Our Cub Adventure Day Camp, Family Camp and Webelos Overnight Week are held at locations that are inspected for safety, cleanliness, and program suitability.

Program

It’s easy to see the benefits of the programs we offer. Of course, fun is the top priority of every boy. But, while delivering the fun, we manage to add in equal amounts of citizenship, fitness, self-esteem, and character development that are the hallmarks of Scouting.

Family Involvement

Parents and siblings are welcome and urged to participate at Cub Adventure Day Camp. Family members may visit camp Friday afternoon for the closing bbq & campfire. Because of the family BBQ & Campfire there is NO bus service on Friday afternoon.

Financial Aid

A limited number of partial Camperships will be available to families who demonstrate a need. A confidential campership Application is available by clicking here. Please send in your Campership Application along with your Camp Registration form. Camperships are not typically granted in amounts greater than 50% of the camp fee.

Insurance

Knox Trail Council maintains an insurance policy which covers all Scouts while at camp. This policy is an excess policy, which means that benefits are paid in excess of the benefits paid by any other insurance which the individual or group may have. To summarize, if your Scout is injured at camp, your personal insurance becomes primary for coverage with the camp insurance picking up any remaining amount. If no other insurance is available, the council’s policy will cover expenses.

Accreditation

Each of our camps undergoes one or more safety inspections prior to and during operation. Our camp was certified as Nationally Accredited by the BSA during the 2012 summer camp season. We are also an American Camping Association Accredited Camp.

Cancellation of Programs

The Knox Trail Council reserves the right to cancel any program. Youth having made reservations for any cancelled program will be given the opportunity to make reservations for any other program being offered.

Refund Policy

All fees must be paid in full at time of registration. There is a $50 per week nonrefundable cancellation fee. After June 1, refunds issued for medical reasons only. All refund requests must be made in writing no later than August 31.

Non-Discrimination Policy

The programs of the Knox Trail Council are available to all boys without regard to race, color, religion, disability, or national origin. Any youth member may attend any age appropriate camp conducted within the council.

Confirmation Packets

The email receipt you receive after you complete your registration is the only confirmation you will receive. No further email confirmations will be sent. The confirmation documents can be obtained by clicking here.

Health Services
