Skymont Summer Camp Fees Due by 4/30
Skymont summer camp is not yet cancelled, so we need to pay our final fees. If the Cherokee Council cancels summer camp, full refunds will be issued. However, if you wish to cancel now, Skymont’s refund policy requires that you do that by May 1 to get a refund, and $75 is non-refundable for Scouts and $30 is non-refundable for Adults. If you wish to cancel, please let Mr. Fred Lee know as soon as possible. The safety measures that Skymont is taking are listed at the end of this section.
The final deposits due are $40 for Scouts and $35 for Adults (total fees are $190 for Scouts and $95 for Adults). In addition, Merit Badge Fees are also due. Please see the attached file to see how much you owe for Merit Badge Fees. Please pay your balance and Merit Badge Fees by April 30th – here are the ways to make your payment:
