The Blackhawk Area Council provides financial help to needy and deserving Scouts living within the Blackhawk Area Council to ensure that they will not be deprived of a summer camp experience because his family is facing financial hardship.
A campership may cover up to one-half (early fee) of the Scout’s camp fee, as unit help is expected. The Campership Request Application is due at the council service center by April 1, 2017. If approved, a confirmation letter will be mailed to the unit leader. Information that appears on this request is kept confidential. Funds are limited, and unite/family participation is required. Priority will be given to Scouts submitting for the first year. Camperships are NOT TRANSFERABLE. If the Scout does not attend camp, the campership is void.
