Making a Reservation

Campsite placement is the first step of making a reservation come together. We base campsite placement off of the number of Scouts and adults you expect to attend camp for the upcoming camping season. This number is simply an estimate however it is crucial that it's accurate so we know how many Scout's we'll serve in a given week. When making this reservation, please be aware of the following reservation and payment guidelines:

  • An estimate of Scouts and adult leaders is due with payment.
  • The non-refundable, non-transferable campsite deposit must be paid to hold a campsite for a week of camp.
  • Multiple units sharing a campsite during a single week must each pay a $100 deposit.
  • If all campsites for a week have been selected, but the total Scouts and adult leader estimate does not equal the camp capacity, the camp reserves the right to place multiple units in a campsite.
  • If a unit exceeds the capacity of the campsite, then it is the responsibility of the unit to provide extra tents needed. The camp cannot provide extra tents, cots, or mattresses.
  • If your unit wishes to remain in the same site for a comparable week of camp the next year, a deposit must be made by noon on Friday during that year's week of camp. If a unit fails to renew their reservation by that time, the campsite will be open for other units to reserve.
  • Campsite deposits are non-refundable; however, they will be applied towards the total camp fees due for your unit.
  • The person named as the Summer Camp Coordinator will be the Dan Beard Council's main contact for all camp and payment announcements. If this info changes, please inform the Dan Beard Council, Outdoor Program Assistant, as soon as possible.

When you've determined the campsite best suited for your unit based upon an estimate of youth and adults, please select the week (on the upper right of this page) then proceed through the reservation process. If the campsite you are interested in is not listed as available, please select "00 - Request Campsite Placement" and then contact the Outdoor Program Assistant by email in order to secure your campsite for the desired week.
