Day Camp/Twilight Camp/STEM Camp

 

Here's what we are doing to make Day Camp Safe!

Based on Governor Kemp’s 5/28/2020 executive order we will be implementing the following safety procedures for the 2020 Day Camp season:

  1. Screening campers at drop off
    1. Contactless check in/check out, parents will remain in their cars during the drop off period.
    2. All campers will be checked as they come into camp for Covid-19 symptoms including: temperature greater than 100.4 degrees, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, other respiratory symptoms, or at least two of the following symptoms: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.
    3. If any scout comes in with any of the above symptoms, they will be asked to go home.
    4. Any workers who display the above symptoms will be asked to stay home or leave camp if they develop during the day.
  2. Social Distancing
    1. We will be keeping our scouts in small groups. They will work in their den and only their den over the course of the week.
    2. There will be no large group gatherings at camp.
    3. The same staff will work with the scouts throughout the day.
    4. Each scout will have their own personal space to leave belongings that they bring to camp.
  3. Sanitizing
    1. Equipment between groups and each program area will be sanitized after each group leaves their respective activity.
    2. There will be no sharing of materials between scouts.
    3. Hand sanitizer will be available at all camps and handwashing will be encouraged.
  4. Staff will go through a Covid training prior to camp beginning.
  5. We will be strictly enforcing all local, state and CDC guidelines.

WILL I WORK ON MY CUB SCOUT RANK?

Most Camp programs are based on a Cub Scout Rank. Many of the activities that are fun provide opportunities to qualify toward rank advancement. These give campers a head start for advancement in their handbooks for their upcoming rank. The camp program focuses on age-appropriate activities, so it is very important that we know what grade the Scout will be entering in the fall of 2020. While at Camp, Scouts who are:

  • Entering 1st Grade will work on Tiger (Adult must attend)
  • Entering 2nd Grade will work on Wolf (Can attend without an adult)             
  • Entering 3rd Grade will work on Bear (Can attend without an adult)
  • Entering 4th Grade will work on Webelos (Can attend without an adult)        
  • Entering 5th Grade will work on Arrow of Light (Can attend without an adult)

CAMP FEES ARE TRANSFERABLE-BUT NOT REFUNDABLE.
