Provisional Campers

Camp Shands will provide a trained Provisional Scoutmaster for both male and female scouts all 5 weeks of camp. Our goal is to provide the scouts with a troop-like experience, incorporating PLC elections, ideal campsite, and more! There is an extra fee of $25 per scout who wishes to register as a provisional and all will receive a camp t-shirt and a printed troop picture with their registration fee.
