Thank you for your patience, as we created our new online Cub Scout and Boy Scout Scholarship Application Form (we’ve extended the deadlines).  Everything you need to know for its completion is contained in the two attached documents (see below).  Please make sure to read each completely before proceeding and forward them to all of our scouting families – even if they haven’t signed up for camp yet or asked about financial assistance.  Knowing such assistance is available might help us all get their scouts to camp.
