Once registration opens in January, all forms should be completed and mailed to the course registrar. The course has limited spaces, so apply early. Incomplete forms will be returned. Registration is confirmed when all forms are deemed complete and fees are paid.
After your forms are approved, you will access the Camp-Master website and pay your fees.
Medical forms parts A & B are due to the Course Registrar with your application.
The deadline for Medical Form Part C (the doctor's physical) is June 1. This form must be mailed (NOT emailed) to the Course Registrar. Please make arrangements with your physician to meet the deadline.
Why is there a deadline for medical form C?
We must properly prepare for the safety of over 200 NYLT volunteers and participants. We appreciate your understanding.
What happens if I don’t turn in my medical form C by June 1?
Participants who have not turned in their physical by June 1st will be placed on a waitlist until their forms are submitted and approved for completeness. Wait list priority is first listed, first served.
Youth will not be registered to participate in the course until the form(s) are submitted and reviewed for completion. The space may be taken by applicants with completed paperwork that are on the waitlist. Your fees will be refunded less a $50 processing fee.
If you are coming as a troop or crew with individual registrations you do not need a Tour Plan. If you decide this is a troop or crew event, then your troop or crew is responsible for submitting a BSA Local Tour Plan to Council via http://myscouting.org for the NYLT course. Please coordinate with your local Troop Committee to submit the Tour Plan by June 1.
The administrators review all the forms for completeness, legibility, confirmed payment, birthdate, age and rank, scoutmaster approval. Our volunteers process them as soon as they can, usually around 10 days you will receive a Welcome Letter or your forms returned if they are incomplete.
After your forms are approved, you will be asked to pay through the Camp-Master system.
You need permission from the NYLT Administrator. You will be charged a $50.00 administrative fee for making the transfers. The replacement must submit all paperwork and pay fees within 72 hours to finalize the process.
As listed on your application, there is a $50.00 administrative fee for cancellations on or before June 1st, 2018. There are no refunds for cancellations after June 1st. We have already paid fees and made deposits by then to our vendors and Lost Valley.
