It is the policy of the Nashua Valley Council that no Scout shall miss the opportunity to attend summer camp because his family lacks the ability to pay full price. A limited number need-based financial assistance is available directly from Nashua Valley Council for this purpose. We strongly encourage Scoutmasters to investigate local funding sources before applying for council camperships. This extends the number of camperships that can be provided to deserving Scouts throughout this council. Camperships are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications are available at the Council Service Center, or by calling (978) 534-3532. All applications must be received no later than May 1.
