Camp Buck Run

Cub Scout Camp

Cub Scout Resident Camping

At resident camps, Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts camp overnight. Every year, the resident camp has a different theme and different adventures. Upcoming themes include Wild West, Space, Knights of the Roundtable, Safari, and Dinosaurs. At resident camp, Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, their leaders, and parents get to try new skills and have a lot of fun with our incredible summer camp staff.

Camp Buck Run is located inside Eberly Scout Reservation along with Camp Conestoga located in Somerset, PA.

Refunds

Any required deposits shall be NON-REFUNDABLE.

Refund of fees, outside of a deposit, will be processed on a sliding scale according to the following guidelines:

  1. Requests received 30 or more days before the event – 100% of the total event fee, less the NON-REFUNDABLE deposit.
  2. Requests received 14 – 29 days before the event – 50% of the total event fee, less the NON-REFUNDABLE deposit.
  3. Requests received less than 14 days before the day of the event — 25% of the total event fee, less the NON-REFUNDABLE deposit.

*In the event of a documented medical reason (doctor’s note required), a death in the family, a natural disaster, or a declared emergency – refund request must be submitted within fourteen (14) days following the end of the applicable activity.

For events where you register as a unit, registrations are transferrable within the same unit to a Scout or adult leader not currently registered for the activity.

Approved refunds will be processed within thirty (30) days of their receipt and all deposit will be made to the Unit. The unit will be responsible for the disbursement of those fees to the correct family. In Council Units, fees will be deposited into the Units account at the Council Service Center.

If an activity is cancelled or postponed by our council and the participant cannot attend on the alternate date, a refund request of the full fee will need to be submitted to process the refund.

Recognizing that we are here to “help other people at all times,” regardless of the policies set out above, full or partial refunds may be granted for special hardship cases. Special hardship cases may include personal illness or family emergencies. Special hardship case refunds will be promptly considered and granted or denied by the Camp’s Staff Advisor or Camp Director.
