General BlackPug FAQ
BlackPug is a camp management tool that the Heart of New England Council uses to manage registrations and reservations for Treasure Valley Scout Reservation.
BlackPug is a suite of software including primarily Scouting Event and Camp Reservation. These two systems are independent of each other on the user end. There is no need to use any certain account to create a registration. All activities and facility rentals can be made ‘as a guest’.
If you are registering for an event that requires a large amount of participant information (i.e., summer camp), you may elect to use your unit’s assigned, or create your own, MyRoster account. This account can be used to import information from a roster into your registration. All HNE Council units have had an account created for them with their unit roster pre-loaded.
On certain events, a Parent Portal will be active in which login information can be distributed to parents/guardians so they may complete their portion of the registration. The unit is still responsible for making sure that participants are paid and registered, but can monitor their families activity with numerous reports.
Requesting funds from a Unit Account
If the “UDA” (Unit Deposit Account) option is available at check-out, you may use it to request funds be taken from your Council Unit Account. The code to do so is 230. Registrations will be booked before funds are actually transferred, however if there are insufficient funds in the account being requested, the payment will be voided and risk voiding.
