Camperships to Help Scouts In Need Attend Summer Camp

It is time to make your Summer Camp plans! Don't let financial barriers stop your scout from attending camp.

Alamo Area Council offers Camperships of up to 50% of the early bird registration fee for Bear Creek Scouts BSA Summer Camp, Webelos Outdoor Adventure Camp, Tiger Day Camp, Cub Scout Summer Family Camp, and Cub Scout Day Camp.

Understand that there are several sources for financing the camping experience: the youth’s family, the troop or pack’s money from product sales (popcorn or camp cards), and a campership if needed. The family’s income is a traditional way to pay for summer camp.

The Council provides popcorn and camp card sales so scouts may practice the Scout Law - a Scout is Thrifty. The Council suggests that Troops, Packs and Crews that have sold Camp Cards and Popcorn, track the amount earned by those youth who have sold so they can use the money to go to camp during the summer. If the family of the youth is unable to pay the total cost of the Camp and the youth’s earnings from product sales are insufficient, then a Campership request is there to assist. The Campership, however,  may cover up to 50% of the camp fee.

  • Campership grants are only available to registered youth scouts in the Alamo Area Council and only for Alamo Area Council Camping Events
  • Scouts may only request 1 Campership per season
  • Campership grants are non-transferable between Scouts.
  • Completion of a campership application does not guarantee a campership grant. Camperships are given on the basis of available funds and verified individual need.
  • Information provided on the campership application is confidential and will be only be used to process your request for a Campership
