Reserve Your Site At Cuyuna 2020

Welcome to the new Cuyuna Camp reservation process!

We are excited to offer this fantastic new system of registering for your 2020 Cuyuna site.

With this being a new process for all of us, it is extremely important that you read and follow the instructions below.

Camp Matrix.  It shows you which campsites are available.  More importantly this year, it shows you how many attendees and/or units are allowed per site.  In 2020 you may find your unit sharing a site with another unit.  You will see the Camp Matrix once you click the “reserve your site button”.

Reserving Your Site. 

  • Click the green button for the week you are requesting.
  • Click “continue as a guest”
  • You will be asked to estimate the number of youth and adults attending Cuyuna 2020.  Even though this is an estimate, it is important to make it realistic.  Make the estimate too high to block another unit from sharing the site, and you’ll need to pay for those reserved sites come registration time.  Make it too low, and the site may be overfilled.
  • Click the green $100 fee button
  • Sign in as a guest by entering your name and email
  • On the next screen it will show you a red “Update Information” button; click it
  • Select your unit number and enter your phone number
  • In the campsite preference box, you will see the max number of participants per site.
  • Select your choice.
  • Click save
  • Click the red “Book Registration” button
  • Enter your payment information and complete your transactions

Couple of items to note:

The $100 Pre-Registration Deposit is the terminology of the site and not Twin Valley Council.  The $100 collected during this transaction is a site fee and is not applied toward your participant registration fees for 2020.  This is no different than it ever has been.  This fee is refundable until March 1, 2020.  Sites are reserved only with full $100 payment.

The most important detail of this process.  Registering for summer camp is now a several step event.  It is imperative that units save the email received when selecting your site.  This email contains your registration number which will give you the access needed to enter participant names, make payments, select merit badges, etc. next May.  Please save the email.

Units, both in Twin Valley Council and out of council, who are enjoying summer camp at Cuyuna in 2019 may choose their site beginning Monday, June 24, 2019, at 9 a.m.

Units not camping with us, both in Twin Valley and out of council, must wait until August 15, 2019, to register.

As always, if you have questions or issues please call Shelley
