You may not think of a KOA Campground as a first choice for a Scout Outing but there are times when it makes sense. We have used KOA when visiting the Naval Academy and on our return trip from our annual visit to Canada's Algonquin Provincial Park. In these instances the KOA is a convenient place to set up a tent.
Public campgrounds can be crowded and sometimes a bit rowdy - but not KOAs - policies are consistently enforced. The KOA's we have stayed in are always clean and well kept.
Participating KOA campgrounds are offering Scouts and their leader's special discount rates, as well as free use of group pavilions and other facilities. KOA Scout Program discount rates include:
- A $5.00 per Scout/Troop leader rate on camping fees, as well as free use of group pavilion facilities. The $5.00 rate applies to RV or tent sites with a minimum of 5 Scouts and 1 Troop leader.
- A 10% discounted fee will apply to all Scout usage of KOA Kabin, Kottage and Lodge accommodations.
- The Scout rate is available only when reservations are made directly through the campground. The rate is not valid with internet reservations or with Hot Deals.
