Boy, that seems a little harsh! Our early bird camp fee is $145, the
normal fee is about $165 or $170. Leaders charged $25/day! That seems like
highway robbery. Our leaders are charged $7/day or $35/week and it even
includes a coffee mug. They are charged this no matter when they com. I am
on the camping committee and you would be welcome to stay at our camp!
The cost difference might even pay for your transportation to and from
Out of curiosity would other leaders please e-mail me off list with their
camp fee schedule. Things to include:
Youth cost, early discount or late penalty amounts
Leader cost per week and per day.
Mess hall camp or patrol cooking.
I will post the results in a few days
