Camp Royaneh Registration Deadline **This WEDNESDAY, 5/19**

If you are interested in Camp Royaneh, the final deadline is this Wednesday, 5/19.

Camp Royaneh Registration **NOW OPEN**

Posted on Mar 15 2021 - 11:56am

Registration for Camp Royaneh is now open.  

According to Golden Gate Area Council (“GGAC”), Camp Royaneh appears to be in high-demand for this summer.  However, before registering and making the financial commitment, you need to be cognizant of some important factors due to the uncertainties surrounding the COVID pandemic and the vaccination schedule.  In recognition of these uncertainties, GGAC is offering a very flexible refund policy this year.  A FULL REFUND will be granted to any registered scouts who ultimately decide not to attend Camp Royaneh for any reasons.
