Cancellation Policy

If your Troop/Crew cancels its reservation and does not come to Camp Chawanakee all money paid is forfeited. You must submit a letter of cancellation to the Fresno Scout Office to let us know that your Troop/Crew isn’t coming. Please note this is for the entire Troop/Crew, if you are reducing numbers this does not apply unless you are dropping after the final payment deadline. There are NO REFUNDS at Camp Chawanakee. You may transfer funds from one Scout/Venturer and adults/leaders to another however. For further questions about refunds contact the Scout Executive / CEO John Richers.

Camp Attendance

You are required to have the final numbers (scout and adults attending camp) into our office no later then the final payment deadline (three weeks before you come to camp). Any changes to these final numbers must be in writing. If you change your numbers after the three week deadline then you will be subject to cancellation fees or add on fees.

  • You can not lower your numbers after the final payment deadline. Even if you do you will be expected to pay for those scouts or adults even if they don't come. So be sure to get your actual numbers into the office in writing before the deadline and get an updated Fee Settlement Form.

    • Changing your numbes on does not count as changing your numbers. You must communicate with the Fresno Scout Office and talk to the camping department to change your numbers.
