Check In Procedure Back to Top

Please be sure to have a copy of your confirmation e-mail with you while camping. You may be asked by local law enforcement to produce this documentation. There is a lock on the gate. The combination is 0270. Please lock the gate behind you after your cars are in the parking lot and when you leave. If cars will be coming and going for a while, you can leave the gate unlocked while you are there, but be sure to lock it back before you leave.

There is no parking allowed on Huron Trail; there are signs that say "No Parking, Fire Lane". Please confine all parking, loading, and unloading to the parking area (behind the gate). We recommend keeping the gate locked once all cars are in the parking lot. As long as someone is onsite, you may leave the gate unlocked while cars are arriving and departing, but be sure to lock the gate before you leave.

Leaders, please note that it is your responsibility to inform parents and others dropping off and picking up scouts that they also need to adhere to this policy. 

Please use car-pooling or stage arrivals so as to not block the road. Remind your campers that there are residences in the area, so please keep the noise level down.

Cancellation Policy Back to Top

In all programs offered by the Patriots' Path Council, BSA, a great deal of planning and purchasing takes place well in advance. These plans include, but are not limited to, staff, food, program materials, patches and awards, rental and purchase of equipment, and in some cases, items of clothing such as T-shirts that are given as part of a program fee.

When an individual or group make a reservation for an activity or program, these items are included in ordering of materials and staffing for that event.

The council reserves the right to cancel programs, as attendance or weather requires.

If the council cancels a program or closes a camp, the payment/deposit can be transferred to another program/available date or returned as requested.

If you decide to cancel your reservation/do not show up and the camp is open, there will be no refund or alternate date offered.

Refunds: Individuals or groups that cancel a program reservation 30 days prior to the date of the event will receive a refund of fees paid, less a 15% administrative charge. No refunds will be made after the 30 day cancelation deadline, unless there is a medical or other emergency.
