Notice: An Important Update from Ten Mile River Scout Camps - Indoor Mask Use Policy

posted Jul 31, 2021, 12:51 AM by Web Master   [ updated Jul 31, 2021, 12:58 AM ]

Updated COVID-19 Guidance and Response from Ten Mile River Scout Camps for the remainder of the 2021 Summer Camp Season

At TMR this summer our active measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 have allowed for three successful weeks of camp as Scouts and their families and leaders have benefitted from a safe and fun camp program. For 2021 Ten Mile River has implemented expanded outdoor programming, an emphasis on distancing between Scouts from different units, entry screening, temperature checks, medical review upon arrival and spot health check-ins, as well as expanded cleaning and sanitizing protocols.

Part of our plan to ensure that we can operate safely this summer has been closely monitoring and interpreting data, to analyze risks and modify our preventive measures as needed. At this time with a surge of cases of COVID-19 and particularly the Delta Variant leading to “moderate to substantial” community transmission rates in the areas where many of our campers will be coming from, we feel that it is important to update our guidelines for the remaining weeks of summer camp.

New Update:

All individuals including Scouts, Staff, Leaders, and Parents will be required to wear a mask when indoors while at Ten Mile River. This policy is based upon the guidance of the CDC. This includes offices, indoor classrooms, leader lounges, and, when not eating or drinking, dining halls. This policy will apply to all individuals regardless of vaccination status.

With a trend of rising infection rates in our home communities, it is critical that we take this step to keep our camps safe and operational through to the end of the 2021 season. Every Scout deserves to have their week at camp. We have done our best this summer to keep classes outdoors and spread out, we have monitored attendance of our different camp areas, and are doing our best to facilitate programs that have a very low chance of transmission. One area that CDC guidance continues to note as an area of increased risk is extended time spent indoors with other individuals. A mask policy for these circumstances is one more step to keep our campers safe.

 

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
