As a parent, you have a choice.
As a council, we have a duty to increase our safety efforts.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're partnering with parents to prioritize safety when it comes to a summer camping experience. We realize that as a parent you have questions and it's important for us to share the many precautions we're taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at our camps. 

To help you make the most informed decision possible, we’ve consulted with and incorporated guidelines from federal, state, and local health officials, as well as the National BSA accreditation program, to create a comprehensive 13-Step COVID-19 Health and Safety Response Plan.
