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:
- Screening campers at drop off
- Contactless check in/check out, parents will remain in their cars during the drop off period.
- 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.
- If any scout comes in with any of the above symptoms, they will be asked to go home.
- Any workers who display the above symptoms will be asked to stay home or leave camp if they develop during the day.
- Social Distancing
- 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.
- There will be no large group gatherings at camp.
- The same staff will work with the scouts throughout the day.
- Each scout will have their own personal space to leave belongings that they bring to camp.
- Equipment between groups and each program area will be sanitized after each group leaves their respective activity.
- There will be no sharing of materials between scouts.
- Hand sanitizer will be available at all camps and handwashing will be encouraged.
- Staff will go through a Covid training prior to camp beginning.
- We will be strictly enforcing all local, state and CDC guidelines.

No Scout will be denied the opportunity to attend Camp because of a physical or mental disability as long as his/her doctor has given him/her permission to attend.

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)
