  • Out of Council Camper Youth = $280; Adult = $135
  • 2nd Week Provisional Youth = $199; Adult = $95

How to Register Campers

  • Register online or complete the registration form and return it to the Scout Center with the camper deposits of $75 (due April 15).
  • Full fees are due by June 1. Campers registered after April 15 will pay a $10 late fee (excluding new Scouts).

Attending Tesomas with Another Unit

  • If a Scout is unable to attend with your unit, don’t let them miss the summer camp experience. Register them with our provisional unit period 8 or with another unit.
  • Scouts/leaders who want to experience a second week of summer camp may also register with our provisional unit or make arrangements to come to camp with another unit.

Unit Reservation Deposit

  • Beginning at the Camp Preview in March, unit reservations will be accepted for 2012. Reservation preferences received at the Camp Preview will be filled in the following order: In-Council, FOS achieving units, time stamp. Reservations received after the Camp Preview will be on a first come, first served basis. See online tools for online reservation procedures.
  • A non-refundable reservation fee of $5 per camper is due with your reservation. These fees will be applied toward your camp fees.
  • If your unit attending Tesomas has less than 50% of the site capacity, the Council reserves the right to assign another unit to use the patrol areas in that site not used by your unit.

Scout/Leader Deposits

  • The first $75 (due April 15) for each Scout/Leader is his/her reservation deposit and is non-refundable, but transferable to another Scout/Leader in the same unit as a new reservation.
  • Remaining fees are due June 1.
  • Campers registered after April 15 will pay a $10 late fee (excluding new Scouts who join your unit after this date).

Leader Fees

  • The adult daily rate is $22 for any adults at camp for 2 or more meals. These adults should plan on paying at camp unless they are splitting the week with another leader.

How to Pay

  • Unit leaders may make payments and register campers online.
  • Send all payments to the Samoset Office (3511 Camp Phillips Road, Weston, WI 54476), using the camper registration form available online. List each person attending camp and the amount paid by that person.


  • The Tesomas Alumni Camping Trust has been established to assist any Scout or leader with financial need to experience camping.
  • Request must be made using the campership application for each person by April 1.

Camp fees are non-refundable as we encourage units to transfer fees to another Scout from the unit who is attending camp. However, the Samoset Council will deal with each situation in which a written refund request is received and endeavor to be as fair as possible. All refunds are calculated after the $75 nonrefundable deposit. These are the guidelines we follow:

  • Sickness, injury or family tragedy during camp resulting in the Scout being sent home during: First third - 50% refunded; Second third - 25% refunded; Final third - no refund.
  • Sickness, injury or family tragedy before camp resulting in the Scout not attending: Notification before camp - 100% refunded; Notification at check-in - 50% refunded; Notification after check-in - no refund.
  • All other reasons (baseball tournament, change in vacation plans, etc): Notification at least 1 week before your camp date - 50% refunded; Less than 7 days, no refund.
