Camp LewisSummer CampFrequently Asked Questions

What medical form do I need to bring to camp?
All campers (youth and adult) MUST have a medical form. If you are staying for a 2-night session, parts A and B of the Anual Health and Medical Record must be completed.

If you are joining us for a 5-night session: parts A, B, AND C must be completed. For 5-night campers Part C must be avaliable to the Health Officer no more than 72 hours after arriving at camp. Any campers not in posession of a completed medical form will be required to leave camp without refund.

I qualify as a Free Leader because of the number of Cubs my Pack has registered. How do I recieve my discount?

This year we are not issuing a direct discount upon registration. Once your pack has reached the minimum number of scouts required to earn a free leader (5 youth), please have your Cub Master contact the Council Office and request a check to reimburse the leader fee.

I can only stay for 2 days, can another adult come up for the remaining time?

We understand that not all families can spend the entire week at camp and we are happy to "swap" out leaders at any time for not additional charge. If there is overlap between the replacement leaders arrival and your departure, we simply ask that any meals eaten be paid.

What is the refund policy?

Within 30 days of your arrival date at camp, refunds will only be considered for the following reasons and are considered on a case-by-case basis:

- Scout's illness -- written statement required from physician;

- Family emergency -- written statement required from parent;

In all cases, requests for refunds must be in writing and submitted to the Northern New Jersey Council Camping Office on or before your arrival date in camp and are subject fo final approval of the camp administration. Each request is considered on an individual basis.

What are the sleeping arrangements like?
We provide comfortable housing in well-maintained canvas tents that sleep two (2) people. Each tent includes 2 cots. We do not provide: bedding (such as a sleeping bag or blankets), pillows, mosquito netting, or alternative accomodations such as cabins.
