Healthy and Safety Guidelines
The programs running will follow a strict set of enhanced protocols developed with guidance from the CDC, ACA, health departments and the Boy Scouts of America.
The primary goal of our staff is to provide an environment for children to engage in activities with as many risks mitigated by proper planning and training. Coming to camp at any time includes some risk that we cannot completely eliminate, including possible exposure to COVID-19. However, we will do our best to minimize exposure and possible spread.
