Financial Assistance: There are a limited amount of camperships available from CT Rivers Council BSA. Camperships are rarely over 50% of camp fees. Connecticut Rivers Council will require a copy of the front page of a family’s most recent Form 1040 in addition to the campership application. This practice is consistent with other major institutions providing camperships, allows the council to make an informed, needs-based decision, and improve their ability to support those Scouts who truly need assistance. More information and the on-line application can be found at the Campership Application link noted below. Applications are due April 1, 2018. If you are applying for financial assistance please submit the Troop 13 Registration Form to Mr. Rutty and let him know you have submitted a campership application.  All information is held confidential.
