A century and counting

Belzer offers a great program for Webelos. Webelos are ages 8-11 years old and come to camp in packs with Cub Scouts. To come to camp as a Webelos, your son must be registered with the BSA and pay the camp fee of $175. If your boys sign up early, they can receive a $25 discount bringing the price of the week down to only $150 for the full week at camp. Belzer offers 2 different Webelos' programs depending on what year they are in Scouting. The Webelos' groups are created when you sign your boys up for camp
Tag-a-longs are non-Scouts who are attending camp throughout the week with the pack. Tag-a-longs are ages 6+ and can be sisters, friends, cousins, ect. in relation to the Cub Scout. They are not required to have a parent with them in camp; however, they are counted as a part of the 10-1 BSA leadership requirement. They can ONLY be registered at camp for $35 per day they attend.
Restricted Tag-a-longs are younger children accompanying their parent/guardian while at camp. They are not permitted to participate in many activities around camp including BBs, archery, and rafting. Restricted Tag-a-longs are 5 years old and under and cost $15 a day. They must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times.
Our Baden Powell and Dan Beard programs offer an opportunity to Boy Scouts to attend camp and work on either Merit Badges or rank requirements. Boys attending this program signup as individuals and do not have troop leadership present in camp. The program costs $175 and a $25 discount is available to those who signup by May 1st.
