Join us for the most up-to-date information available regarding summer programming for Scouts BSA and youth in 6th through 12th grade.

May 6th at 7pm


During this unprecedented time, many of our programs have changed shape or adapted to other channels to provide and maintain meaningful opportunities for Scouts. We are very proud of our staff and volunteers who pivoted our spring programs to the Base Camp online platform.

As we evaluate the summer situation, we are in regular communication with public health and government officials as well as school administrators. We also understand that many families’ finances and vacation schedules are in turmoil. Finally, we strive to take into consideration the emotional need to be outdoors, and the relatively inherent ability to maintain social distance while camping.

Our commitment to safety is our primary concern. As we make each decision about summer camp we will meet or exceed the public health protocols. 

Additional Factors

We hold a deep understating and commitment to your family and your local program. We understand that our outdoor opportunities are enhancements to your local program. Those enhancements are unique and critical elements of the Scout experience. This makes each family’s decision just as difficult as any Council decision.

All parents and leaders are strongly encouraged to attend one of our two information sessions. Some of the details we will cover in these meetings include: 

  1. Our decision-making tree about each property and each week - we welcome your feedback.
  2. Communication timelines about those decisions
  3. Our safety protocols that will be with us for the foreseeable future
  4. Procedures to receive full refunds - if necessary.
  5. 2020 increase in dollars available for camperships (camp scholarships based on need)
  6. New outdoor program opportunities extending deep into the fall and beyond that will serve as a full replacement for many of the summer experiences.
  7. Multi-model outdoor and Scouting opportunities extending into the fall and beyond
