In the past, the traditional scout summer camp was defined by overnight tent camping, waterfront swimming, and unusual dining hall experiences. Now living in a post-pandemic time we need to think of summer camp differently. As we go phasing back into the world we must keep sanitation safety in mind.
- If you’re not feeling well you need to stay home.
- Most camps have paperwork (supplemental risk information) that is required before attending that proves you’re well.
- Summer Camp requires A-B-C medical forms. (C is required for 72+ hours.)
- If you’re at camp and not feeling well, put a mask on and report to First Aid.
- Wash Your Hands (WYH) as often as you can. (6 or more times in 24 hours.)
- Try to maintain social distance in case someone coughs or sneezes.• Cough and sneeze into your elbow or disposable paper towel and immediately WYH & Face.
- Avoid touching your face or anyone else.
- WYH before washing your face.
- Use hand sanitizer properly if you cant WYH. As soon as you can WYH.
- Follow all safety instructions of the camp.
- Use your common sense and don’t panic. There are virtual cames online if you’re not feeling well or just not phased out into real camp yet.
