NOTE:  To help defray the cost of camp, we encourage Scouts to earn money through fundraising whenever possible.

DEADLINE:  The 2018 deadline is still to be determined.  More information will be available here soon.

NOTIFICATION:  We will notify the Parent and Adult Leader of the awarded scholarship amount.  The Scout must be registered (online, or with NYLT coordinator) with at least the non-refundable deposit being paid by then.  Delay of registration with paid deposit risks cancellation of a scholarship by our council.
