As a unit, please keep track of Scouts who have paid, canceled, and are being replaced. (Campers Aid recipients cannot move their scholarship money to a replacement Scout.)

      • On or before June 15, 2017: A refund of 85% of registration costs will be granted by request.

      • After June 15, 2017: Registration costs will be forfeited.
