Note: Winter camping—from October 15–April 15—is available only at Amahami Outdoor Program Center and at Camp Hoover. Each camp is closed during hunting season. See the specific property page.
A full refund is given if council closes a program center (due to a serious health or safety hazard) or cancels a program. Troops/groups or individuals who have reservations or are registered will be notified as soon as possible when that decision is made.
Payments or deposit fees for all council programs and events are non-refundable unless council cancels the event or the registering person/group cancels PRIOR to the registration deadline.
Program fees of $25 (per person) or less must be paid in full at the time of registration; otherwise a deposit of $25 (per person) is acceptable. Final payments are due a minimum of two weeks prior to the event, or as stated in the event registration information. Please note that some events require a longer lead time. In the case of a program that costs $25 or more per person, if cancellations are made prior to the final payment due date, a refund, less the deposit fee will be granted.
Cancellations made after the registration deadline will not receive a refund, unless the cancellation is due to a medical reason and a request for refund with a doctor’s excuse is received within two weeks of the cancellation or program date.
If a participant uses their council Cookie Dough as payment towards a program or event and subsequently cancels their registration (prior to the registration deadline, etc.), the Cookie Dough amount is refunded only as Cookie Dough. The refunded Cookie Dough will be issued with the same expiration date as the Cookie Dough that was used as payment.
Participants who want to transfer to another council program or event will be assessed a $10 transfer fee. The transfer must be requested PRIOR to the registration deadline of each program.
The $10 deposit fee for Summer Camp programs is non-refundable unless council cancels the program.
Cancellation notifications will only be accepted in writing (to the Program Assistant in the Cicero office or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org). Refunds for cancellations are made only if the notification is received by the Program Assistant prior the registration deadline (two weeks prior to the summer camp date). A cancellation may qualify for a refund (minus the deposit fee) if the cancellation is due to a qualified medical reason. A written refund request along with a doctor’s excuse must be received within two weeks of the cancellation or program date.
Participants who want to transfer to another Summer Camp program will be assessed a $10 transfer fee (unless the program is cancelled by the council, in which case this fee will be waived). The transfer must be requested PRIOR to the registration deadline for each program. If a participant uses council Cookie Dough as payment towards a Summer Camp program and qualifies for a refund, the Cookie Dough amount is refunded only as Cookie Dough. The refunded Cookie Dough will be issued with the same expiration date as the Cookie Dough that was used as payment.
Payments for property reservations are non-refundable on the date of the reservation, unless council cancels the reservation.
