  • We ask that prior to arriving at camp all scouts and leaders take a Covid self-test (Preferably Sunday morning).   


The link to the 2022 - COVID Mitigation at GNYC Camps guidelines is Here .  Please pay special attention to PAGE 4, as TMR is asking all parents, drivers, scouts and leaders to test before coming up to camp. - All families must complete a BSA Pre-Event Screening form prior to arrival (The form is here).

Please arrange to arrive at the camp by 2:20 pm, which is our scheduled arrival time.

Scouts should wear their bathing suits up to camp as we will not have time to change before the swim test.

If a scout is found with a phone, he will need to surrender it, and he will not be able to attend TMR with our troop next year.
