Got that as well.  We're planning on Woodruff, but not until later in July.  So that that gets called off, there's not really any pushing it back to later in the summer.

They (Atlanta area council) seem to be looking to modify the program, which is why one would go to camp, so agree not a good sign.  The ones the Scouts want are aquatics, COPE, shooting and field sports, and rafting trips.  Take away or limit those, it's a challenge

First question was very revealing, what would you do if camp is cancelled or delayed.....

Looks like Sea Base is planning to be active in June.  Given this, I expect many councils will continue to plan to hold summer camps, unless states prevent them.  I was thinking there would be a lot of cancellations if HA bases close, but as they are remaining open, it will encourage councils to also find a way forward.

In the end, it will really depend on the CDC and state health departments … they will have the final say.

Yes.  We  (were) early June at Sea Base, so it looks like we'll be rescheduling.  Sigh.

5/1/20:

Mass is now requiring masks be worn in public where 6ft social distancing cannot be maintained.

NH is opening campgrounds but only if guidelines below are followed and only for members or NH residents.  The guidelines has the ominous title Stay at Home 2.0 Public and Private Campgrounds:

Wonder if I should take the course, just for the cert?

At the CSDC level, the online cert is good for one year only. 
 

edit: oh click the link. 3 year cert for resident camp stuff. That’s potentially useful.

Atlanta Area Council has cancelled first two weeks of summer camp (Week 1 - 5/30 and Week 2 - 6/7).  This is for both Woodruff and Bert Adams.

They will update 30 days out, so I guess 5/14 for week 3 which is scheduled to start 6/14.

Our troop has made the decision to cancel for week 4  at Bert Adams.  We have a couple high risk scouts and couple adult's with travel bans.   Really hope they give us a full refund.
