In January 2020, the BSA announced that effective December 31, 2020, the “Family Camp” NCAP classification will officially be retired. In its place, the BSA will add a new term to the NCAP vernacular, “Short-Term Camp”. This new camp classification is defined as:
Short-Term Camps. A short-term camp is any council-organized overnight camping program, whether one-time or continuing, that is one, two or three nights in length where the council or its agents (volunteers) provide the staffing and program and may provide food services, and includes camps conducted off council properties.
Put simply, all council, district coordinated overnight events that are three nights or less are considered a "Short Term Camp". This includes district camporees, council camporees, Cub Scout/Webelos Family Camps, Order of the Arrow events, training events and more. A district event is described as any event where more than one unit is organizing cooperatively.
For events 4 nights or longer please contact the council office for additional information.
