We at Hudson Liberty Council have just set our camp fees for 1996. Our
budget committee determined that the cost to the council per youth/week would
be $237 and the Executive Board set a fee of $185 per youth/week. That means
council will subsidize each participant to the tune of $52 through fund
In addition, we have had a policy for many years that no youth is denied
access to camp for monetary reasons, so we also provide camperships for any
in-council youth who need them.
Our council is located in northern New Jersey, directly across the Hudson
River from NYC and our camp, Rock Hill Scout Reservation is located in
northeastern PA near the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
