Based on the responses to the troop survey and current IDPH, CDC, and BSA Council guidelines, all scouts and adults will continue to wear masks at meetings and campouts, except for leader-designated “mask optional” activities. One example would be a hike where social distancing is easy to do.
Carpooling and tenting will continue as before, family choice. If you need a ride or a tent buddy, please reach out directly to families signed up for the campout.
