Summers at Camp Webster
Camp Webster, located in Ashford, Connecticut is where Troop 13 spends one week during the summer. Together we work on Merit Badges, have fun swimming and boating, camp activities and enjoy the outdoors.
Dates: Week 3 – July 13-18, 2014. We have site 5B which is located near the center of camp.
Registration Forms: Please fill out a registration form and submit to Kathy Beaulieu by May 1, 2014.
Medical Forms: The only medical form accepted is the CRC 2013 Boys Scouts of America Medical Form. The new medical form, Medication Administration Form and Allergy Form are attached. All medical forms are due to Kathy Beaulieu by June 1, 2014. If your son’s forms will be later than June 1, 2014 please let Kathy know the details. Do not wait on medical forms to submit registration form & payment please.
Fees: Total Fee is $380.00 - payment is due by May 1, 2014 - After May 1, 2014 the cost increases to $400.00. Registration deadline is June 1, 2014 - Please make all checks payable to “Troop 13” - Credit Cards can be processed by filling out information on registration form and submitting to Kathy Beaulieu.
Financial Assistance: If you are applying for financial assistance please submit the Troop 13 Registration Form to Kathy and let her know you have submitted a campership application. All information is held confidential. There are a limited amount of camperships available from CT Rivers Council BSA. Camperships are rarely over 50% of camp fees. Beginning in 2014 the 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 our ability to support those Scouts who truly need assistance.
