Based upon the emails I’ve received I did not do a good job explaining the online payment option during our kick-off meeting. In reviewing my notes and slides from that day, looks like I did not cover it at all. My mistake, my bad. I am sorry.
To allow everyone adequate time to prepare for online payments, communicate with families and the like, we will push the early bird payment deadline back to Thursday, March 19. All other deadlines remain the same.
We use our online merit badge registration system, Summer Camp Systems, to not only enroll Scouts in merit badges and activities, but also provide a means for you and parents to submit payments online.
You now have access to the online merit badge registration system for Summer 2020. As of now you can do one thing – create an account. You should do that now.
More than one person within your unit can have an account. You may want to have your treasurer, summer camp coordinator, Scoutmaster, advancement chair to have an access to the system.
By March 9, we will have loaded all of the Old North State Council scouts and their details Summer Camp Systems. We pull this data from ScoutNet after recharter. Going forward you will need to add Scouts who join your unit by hand.
Out-of-council units, we will provide you with an Excel template to collect your Scouts’ data so we can mass add your Scouts to the system as well. Details are below.
I will email you again, on or before March 9 to let you know the system is ready to take credit card payments. You can begin to make payments via check or face-to-face now.
Checks should be made payable to Old North State Council, 1405 Westover Terrace, Greensboro, NC 27408.
Remember the preferred method of payment is for you to collect funds from your Scouts and then the unit pays the council.
