Goshen Update: Collecting Money Early and Applying Scholarships

Posted By Calicoe Richir, Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Updated: Tuesday, February 25, 2014

We will soon be opening up the register.gotogoshen.org website to add youth (and adults). Start planning now to have payments in hand! Space at camp is reserved on a first come, first served basis. Scouts can be added online and payments can be made by check or credit card. All check payments will come with a processed invoice from the online system. Scouts and Adults should take advantage of the Early Bird savings by getting their payments in early, before the deadline. Check out the FAQs if you have payment questions.

Additional incentives? All Scouts who get their money in by the Early Bird deadline will receive a free Goshen Hat!

Popcorn Scholarships (Free Camp!) are given to youth who are enrolled in the Popcorn Scholarship Program. To be part of the program, Scouts must sell at least $2,500 in popcorn sales from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013 and fill out the enrollment paperwork. Please contact Lisa Snip at Lisa.Snip@scouting.org if you are uncertain if you qualify.

What to expect: Parents will receive a letter in the mail that says their Scout has been granted free camp through popcorn sales. Parents need to give a copy of this letter to their camp coordinator in lieu of payment. If the scholarship is being applied to a Goshen camp, then the camp coordinator needs to contact Calicoe Richir at Calicoe.Richir@scouting.org to request these Scouts be added to the online reservation system. Please do not pay for Scouts who have received free camp through popcorn.

The Goshen Greg Augustine Camper's Aid program has been updated. Be sure to review the new form which has new requirements and it is due earlier than usual. All Goshen Camper Aid requests are due at the Council Service Center by February 28th, 2014. The Camper Aid Committee will then convene and make award designations. Requests received after February 28th will only be considered if funds are still available. Please submit this application before registering this Scout for camp online and before paying the Scout's camp fees. Camper Aid will not be awarded or refunded to registrants who have secured funding from other sources. Additionally, Camper Aid will not be granted in excess of the camp registration fee. Please do not submit any payments with the application. For more directions, please see the first page of the form. If you have any questions, please contact Calicoe Richir at Calicoe.Richir@scouting.org.
