Access the CAMPERSHIP APPLICATION HEREExternal Link

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. 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.

If you require a physical copy, please contact Emily Cross at: Emily.Cross@scouting.org or 847-417-9426
