2020 Campership Program

Summer camp is where lifelong memories are made.  For many the highpoint of their Scouting experience is attending summer camp.  The Garden State Council realizes the cost of providing this experience can be too much for some families to bear alone; therefore, funds have been made available to assist those families in need so that the Scout may have a camping experience.  These funds are made possible from the annual Friends of Scouting campaign, the popcorn sale, the camp card sale, the Endowment Fund and other events held during the year as well as individuals and organizations who understand the lifelong impact Summer Camp has on a Scout. This assistance is provided in the form of a “Campership” through the application and review process. Campership funds are very limited so we highly recommend scouts seek other means such as selling camp cards.

The 2020 Campership Policy, instructions and application are located at the bottom of this page.  

All applications are due by 5:00pm on April 1st

For Day Camp: If your scout is interested in attending day camp, you are encouraged to enroll him/her and then pay after the campership form is processed.

Please consider having your Scout sell Camp Cards as a means to pay for camp.  Learn more at http://www.gardenstatescouting.org/CampCards
