Summer Camp is Cancelled – What Now?

Well, it’s been a weird spring and no mistake. I’m guessing you know by now that summer camp has been cancelled. We’re all disappointed, but the safety of our boys comes first.

Having said that, we are in the early stages of exploring some possible fun that we can have as a troop during the third week of July. Options may include a partial week of camping, a few days of “day camp”, or maybe a backpacking trip or other adventure. We will, of course, follow BSA and local government guidelines. But beyond that, we’d like to hear from the parents of the troop about what you think you might be comfortable with sending your boys to. Please let me know if you have any thoughts on the subject.

The good news about camp being cancelled is that we will get a refund. Council will cut a check to the Troop, and then we will disburse the money back to you. Also, if we register now for summer 2021 we can be guaranteed this year’s price for next year’s camp. We are planning to do that, so


I know we are all looking forward to getting back to normal. Our Zoom troop meetings have been better than nothing, but it’s not really scouts without a rousing game of Capture the Flag every now and then. Especially for our younger scouts who have (understandably) not been participating as much online, we’re really hoping to see you all this summer and into the fall.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions. I haven’t been great at keeping up with email lately, so if I don’t respond quickly feel free to text me at 616.634.7322.

All the best,
