Provisional Camping

Provisional Camping is for Scout youth who are unable to attend the regular Summer Camp week with their own Troop or Crew, or those who wish to attend a different or extra week of Summer Camp. Provisional Camping is available each week at Camp Royaneh and Wente Scout Reservation. Scouts will select the Camp and Week(s) to attend and send in an application with their full Camp fee. All boys must be registered in the Boy Scouts of America and bring a properly-completed BSA Annual Health & Medical form (Parts ABC).

Once arriving at Camp Sunday afternoon, the Scouts will check-in from 1-3pm and paired with their host Troop and campsite. Those wishing to be paired with another Troop from their own area before the camp week may contact the Council Camping Dept. after submitting their Provisional Camper application to enquire about Troops from their area attending camp the same week.
