The New Birth of Freedom Council believes that every Scout should be given an opportunity to take part in a summer outdoor experience. The council’s Campership Fund was established to ensure that Scouts who, without financial assistance, would not be able to attend camp. All applications are considered based solely on financial need. Assistance is normally granted for up to 50% of the camp attendance fee, with a limited number of grants available above the 50% level.
The deadline for submitting a campership application is April 1 (of the year attending camp). Download a campership application.
All adults and parents planning to attend New Birth of Freedom Council summer camp programs need to obtain those background clearances now mandated by state law. Click here for more information.
This page of our website provides visitors with information on the various facilities and programs available at all four camps. Should you need any additional information or wish to place a reservation at any of the council camps, please contact Camping Services at (717) 620-4525.
