Unit Camping

       

Cabin Rentals:

Starting on September 1, you can enjoy our cabins at Seven Ranges Scout Reservation and Camp McKinley.  Reservations can be made on the web site and all COVID-19 protocols must be followed.  The Village Cabins at Seven Ranges must be rented by family groups only but the other available building can be rented by Troops keeping all COVID-19 and Youth Protection rules in mind.

 

 

Units may conduct overnight camping activities on their own at a BSA Resident
Camp facility.
 To provide liability and accident insurance coverage to all our units who choose to camp this year, only Boy Scouts of America resident camping properties in the state of Ohio are approved for Buckeye Council members’ use. This means Seven Ranges Scout Reservation, and any BSA Resident Camp Property operated by an Ohio BSA Council are approved under this plan. This includes all Council, District, and Unit camping programs.

 

Seven Ranges and Camp McKinley open September 1 for overnight camping. 
Limited redefined campsites available w/ maximum occupancy of 10 people.
Camp Rodman remains closed.
Online reservation system will be available on buckeycouncil.org

 

 

Other Seven Ranges Guidelines

  • Prior to arriving at camp, all participants must complete and bring with them the Covid-19 Questionnaire form with parent signature (for those under 18 years old) and receive a temperature check upon arrival at Seven Ranges Scout Reservation. This temperature check will be completed by the unit leader upon arrival, with assistance from Campmasters if needed. This temperature check will be documented at the bottom of the Covid-19 Questionnaire.
  • We understand there may be a need for a Scout or leader to leave at some point during the trip with plans to return. If this is to happen, the participant’s temperature must be taken again upon return to camp.
  • If a temperature screening is 100 degrees or more, you should not attend any Scouting function.
  • If the temperature of an individual rises to the 100-degree threshold during an event, they will need to leave the event.
  • Masks or Face Coverings should be worn by all leaders and Scouts during any camping programs.
  • All camping reservations should be less than 72 hours in length

Can my unit go camping at another facility that is not a BSA resident camp?

No. We know that all BSA resident camps are following guidelines for group size limitations and the social distancing guidelines that the American Camping Association and the National Boy Scouts of America recommends. We do not know what other facilities (i.e. church camps, YMCA camps, state parks, etc.) are providing, so our insurance provider is willing to provide insurance for all BSA resident camps because they are following the protocols that the American Camping Association recommends.

 

 

 

 

Camping is a major part of the Scouting program, but socially distancing in tents presents some obvious challenges. The best practice is to have one Scout per tent unless Scouts are from the same household. 6 feet of space between tents.

 

No Carpooling, unless Scouts are from the same household. Assessing County Public Health Emergency Levels: Default to the county that has the highest level of risk, either county of origin or county of destination.  Be advised of any destination state's restrictions and other travel restrictions as Scouting plans are developed. Consider staying local to your geographic area and if you must travel, limit mixing with others along the way.

 

 

If your unit will be serving food, it is very important to take steps to limit the risk of spread. These best practices will help you safely limit the risk of spread:

  • Clean and disinfect common surfaces between groups
  • Keep people 6 feet apart
  • Stagger meal times to minimize the number of people dining inside at one time
  • Assign seats for the duration of meals
  • No self-serve buffet meals or common water coolers. Use disposable utensils, napkins, cups and plates.
  • Clean and disinfect eating and cooking gear after each use. 
  • Ensure proper sanitation and handwashing.
  • Prioritize use of “grab and go” services (i.e., boxed meals), in which meals are packaged or assembled on a tray for diners to retrieve or plate meals individually.
  • Discontinue the use of beverage dispensers (e.g., fountain drink dispensers, common milk pitchers, etc.) Arrange bottles of beverage choices along a table or counter for diners to retrieve.
  • Discontinue the use of shared condiments. Offer condiment packets along with the meal.
  • Post signs reminding diners of the guidelines, such as handwashing, social distancing, etc.
