For nearly 100 years, Scouts of all ages have come to Camp Sequassen for exciting summer adventures. Scouts will have fun individually and with their fellow Scouts at the waterfront, on the trails, at the ranges, and all across camp. Not only will they enjoy activities in the numerous program areas, but they can choose from more than 50 merit badges including traditional Scouting badges like swimming, archery, and rowing to STEM badges like automotive maintenance, engineering, and robotics to badges you may not expect at camp like moviemaking, digital technology, and game design.

New unit registrations require a $200 non-refundable unit deposit.  The $200 fee should be applied as a credit to the unit’s individual Scout/Scouter registrations when they are entered.

 

March 15, 2022 is the deadline for entry of Scout rosters.  At that time, a unit will be responsible for a minimum payment of $50 per registered Scout. To be eligible for the Early Bird bonus, full Scout fee must be paid online or received in the Council office by April 1st.  Fees not paid by April 1st are due no later than the Troop’s pre-camp meeting date, approximately three and a half weeks prior to the start of the appropriate camp session (check the Leader’s Guide for the pre-camp meeting schedule).

Online payments may be made by credit card or electronic check.  If your unit prefers to submit payment(s) to the Council office, please plan to do so in advance of entering your roster online.  Fees submitted to the Council office will be entered as a unit summer camp registration credit that you will be able to draw against as you enter your Scouts and Scouters online.  Roster entries entered without payment will be held in your “cart” until payment by credit card or electronic check is authorized.

Scouts who come to camp on their own, without leaders from their home Troop, are called provisional campers and are welcome to attend Camp Sequassen.  Whether a Scout’s Troop doesn’t attend Sequassen or the Scout wants to attend a different or additional week(s) of camp, he/she may register as a provisional camper by completing an individual registration online.  (Scouts attending camp with their unit should speak with their leaders about registering for the unit’s week at camp.  Please do not submit an individual registration for the session you are attending with your unit.)

It is recommended that an account with login be set up to register so you will be able to return to the registration to make additional payments, sign up for special programs, and/or revise merit badge selections.  Use the link below to access the registration system, select the desired week, and click “Register.”

Select the correct individual registration category and indicate whether you will pay the full camp fee or the $50 non-refundable deposit, by credit card or electronic check, when the registration is submitted.  When you enter all the registrant’s information, you will also have the option of ordering and paying for camp photos and tickets for the Saturday family brunch (brunch is already part of every week long camper’s registration, tickets are for friends and family that would like to join the campers for the last meal at camp).

If you have questions, please contact the Camp Registrar, ccruson@bsamail.org, 203-951-0237.

We look forward to sharing our summer with you!

Please note that, while you may enter campsite preferences, site selection cannot be guaranteed.  A unit must commit to attending with a minimum of 10 Scouts to reserve an individual site.  Units that plan to bring fewer than 10 Scouts may still register and indicate site preference but will not be assigned a site until other units’ camper numbers can be determined.
