Alamo Area Council Offering Camperships to Scouts In Need to Attend Summer Camp!

It is time to make your Summer Camp plans! Don't let financial barriers stop your scout from attending camp.

Alamo Area Council offers Camperships of up to 50% of the early bird registration fee for Bear Creek Summer Camp, Camp Akela, NYLT, Tiger Cub Day Camp, Cub Scout Resident Camp and Cub Scout Day Camp.

It should be noted that the conditions for financial aid by campership have changed from last year.

Your Campership Committee has ascertained that there are several sources for financing the camping experience: the youth’s family, the troop or pack’s money from product sales, and a campership if needed. The family’s aid is a traditional way to pay for summer camp. The Council has added popcorn and camp card sales so the youth of a unit may practice the Scout Law - a Scout is Thrifty. The Council suggests that Troops and Packs that have sold Camp Cards and Popcorn track the amount those youth who have been sellers produce so they can use the money to go to camp during the summer. If the family of the youth is unable to supply the cost of the Camp and the youth’s earnings from product sales are insufficient, then a Campership request is there to assist. However, the campership will only cover up to 50% of the camp fee.

To submit a Campership Application Click HEREExternal Link

The Campership Committee meets once a month at the beginning of each month to review and award camperships.  If your application is not in and a unit endorsement received prior to that meeting, it will be held for the next month's meeting.


Each application requires a unit endorsement prior to being reviewed by the campership committee.  Once an application is received the Unit's Committee Chair and Scoutmaster or Cubmaster will be contacted via email with a link to the unit endorsement form.  Please fill out the unit endorsement in the scout's name to the best of your ability and then submit it for review.  

The link to the unit endorsement will be emailed out to the Unit Scoutmaster/Cubmaster and Committee Chair. 


Once a campership has been awarded, the email address on the campership application will receive notification of the results.  It is the responsibility of this person to notify anyone else within the unit that may need to know.  

If you have any questions about the campership process, please contact Linda Dieguez at 210-740-9370
