Reopening Council Camp Properties

September 2, 2020

The Executive Committee of our Board has approved a limited reopening of council camping properties and a process for resuming some in-person outdoor events.

For the time being, only council-wide activities and events will be permitted at these facilities. Our Health and Safety team will monitor these events, direction from healthcare officials and governmental orders, and when the team believes it appropriate they will approve the resumption of district and unit activities at our camps.

Events will be chosen from an application process. Multiple health and safety requirements must be met in order for an event to be approved. You may find all of these details in the Covid-19 – Guide to Reopening Camp Properties guide.

Any event must be approved by our council Executive Board’s VP-Program:

  • Masks will be worn at all times except eating, sleeping, or swimming/boating
  • Release Form
