Tiered Pricing

We have introduced a new voluntary tiered pricing system which will allow families to choose the price that works best within their budget. Naming your price requires no paperwork and in no way influences the experience your Scout will have at Camp Augustine. Your families can choose their tier based on their ability to pay. There are camperships available because we never want a Scout to miss out on the summer camp experience due to financial hardship in his or her family. Camperships are based on Tier C pricing.

What are the tiers?

Tier A: This tier accounts for the true costs of having a Scout at camp.
Tier B: This tier is a partially subsidized rate.
Tier C: This is a more heavily subsidized rate.

Where do the subsidies come from?

Summer camp fees are subsidized by Friends of Scouting, United Ways, and popcorn sales.

How does this work?

Explain the tiered pricing with your parents and leaders when you are discussing your unit’s summer camp plans. When you get the commitment to attend summer camp from each family, ask them which tier they can afford. Collect the appropriate fee and register each participant at the appropriate tier. There is not special paperwork to fill out.

Why are you doing this?

Camp revenues have been falling over the last 10+ years while expenses have increased. Due to this, we have been running a growing deficit on camping operations while neglecting maintenance on our facilities. The operating deficit has been traditionally covered by council fundraising such as Friends of Scouting, United Ways, and popcorn sales. Over the last 5 years, these revenue sources have declined leading to operating deficits at the council level that have left the council on shaky financial ground. The tiered pricing allows families that can afford to pay the full cost of their Scout’s camp attendance to do so without punishing the families whose financial situation doesn’t allow for such a sharp increase in fees.

Is more assistance available?

We never want a Scout to miss out on camp for financial reasons. Camperships are available to cover up to 50% of the Tier C pricing. Campership application deadlines are one (1) month before the early bird deadline.
