Weekend Camping

Reservation Policy & Procedures

Reservations for weekend camping at Broad Creek Memorial Scout Reservation will be accepted beginning Sunday, April 25th for the following calendar year. Reservations will only be accepted by paying the required fee and submitting the Short-Term Camping Application. No reservations will be accepted by phone unless a credit card or unit account is being used to make payment. If you mail in the application with the fees and the site is already reserved, you will be notified by Camping Services. You will then have the option of cancelling and receiving a refund or scheduling for another weekend.
Fees for weekend camping at Broad Creek are based on the sites and facilities used or reserved as well as the number of Scouts and leaders camping. Units, districts and council groups will be charged the fee for each site and facility reserved/used or two dollars ($2.00) per person, whichever is greater. In addition, a one dollar ($1.00) per person per night surcharge must be paid for liability insurance.

Cancellations will be accepted and fees refunded if a request is received in writing at the council office at least two weeks prior to the reserved weekend. Cancellations caused by an “Act of God” as determined by the Council Camping Director or the Camp Ranger will result in a full refund.
