Camp Reservations

2018 Site Reservations
To ensure your Troop can get a great campsite next year, fill out your 2018 registration now. If you have a current 2017 registration, you can reserve the same site and same week for 2018 before anyone else, as long as your reservation is in by May 1st. Your site and week will be held if your reservation is in along with the $100 deposit before May 1st.

If you do not have a 2017 site, or if you want to switch sites, reservations will open May 5th. If two Troops want the same site, a lottery will happen May 6th to determine who gets the site.
Want to try a new camping experience but don't want to give up your preferred site registration? Try theTomahawk and Many Point Site Swap! You can check out theFacebook Pageand find a troop at Many Point who wants to swap for one summer, then emailkburbank@nsbsa.orgwith your troop info. You'll get to see what Many Point has to offer, and still retain your priority reservation for the next year.
