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.
