The Northeast Illinois Council wants to ensure that our Scouts can participate fully in our council-sponsored outdoor camp programs by helping families meet the financial requirements for the program fees.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we can provide scholarships to assist our Scouts who need a little extra help on their path. We offer scholarships for the following:

Cub Scout Family Camp at Indian Mound Reservation
Twilight Camp
Cub Scout Day Camp at Camp Oakarro
Webelos (Akela) Camp at MSR
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
MSR Resident Camp
MSR High Adventure Treks
