Camp Scouthaven is GNFC's long-term home for Summer Resident Camp, both for Scouts, BSA & Cubs! 

We've assembled the most experienced Summer Camp Leadership Team in the region to ensure we can deliver the promise of scouting to your unit in Summer 2021 and beyond. The time has come to think ahead. I know each and every one of you are looking forward to the next time you can be at Summer Camp. We are too! We invite you all to come discover A NEW FRONTIER! 

We have already started forming key staff, assessed camp, and are making plans. Our promise to all of you is an EXTRAORDINARY experience. We all deserve it. The GNFC Camp Staff will be highly trained and motivated. We will be well prepared and ready to answer the call.  Our Council Staff is working hard to give us Extraordinary support. Be a part of it all, as Scouting returns to the shores of Crystal Lake!  We know 2021 will be a sellout year. And we will do our best to accommodate every unit. Start talking 2022 with your units!

REFUND POLICY (Per Individual)

Safety is our most important concern each year at Summer Camp. We understand that the pandemic has changed everyone's ability to make long term plans. For that reason, we have entirely redesigned our Summer Camp Refund Policy. If you aren’t feeling well before camp starts please stay at home. You can get a full refund, minus a $25 cancelation fee with a doctor’s note. If leading up to camp you are unable to consult with a doctor, our health and safety team would be happy to talk with you about extenuating circumstances. In addition, your entire camp fee can be refunded up to 30 days prior to camp starting subject to a $25 cancellation fee for any reason.


Adults Attending Summer Camp

All adults attending and staying overnight at Summer Camp MUST be registered in the BSA and have valid Youth Protection Training. It is the Greater Niagara Frontier Policy that all adults must be registered no later than 2 weeks prior to camp. Any adult that arrives at Camp that does not have a current paid BSA registration will not be permitted to stay overnight.

Camp Visitors Policy 2021

We have amended our previous Visitation policy in light of the lifting of restrictions from the State. We will now be allowing visitors in a limited capacity.  All visitors must have prior approval before arriving at camp.  Please see below for the requirements for visitors to camp.

  • All visitors must fill out a Summer Camp Visitation Request form and submit it to Bob Blatz at bob.blatz@scouting.org no later than the week prior to their visit to camp.
  • When visitors check-in in the camp office they must fill out a Covid Screening form.
  • Visitors will only be allowed in camp between meal times (9am-12pm, 1pm-5:30pm, 7pm to dusk).
  • Visitors will be limited to 2 hours in camp.
  • Visitors to Units will be limited to no more than 2 at the same time.
  • No Visitors will be allowed in Dinning Hall (meals are not available for purchase in 2021).
  • We ask Visitors not to bring in food into camp.
  • Visitors that are Not Vaccinated must wear masks indoors

For Check In and Check Out of Camp, parents dropping off youth will be allowed in the parking area only, they will not be allowed in the campsite.  Leaders staying with the unit will be asked to help youth get gear to campsite and back to parking lot.  If you are just picking up your Scout, Visitors Request form is not needed.

If you have any questions, please contact Bob Blatz at Bob.Blatz@scouting.org or 716-512-6215
