Our Commitment to Safety – COVID-19 Preparations for Outdoor Programs

In surveys the BSA sent out to more than 14,500 unit leaders, two-thirds of those polled indicated they were feeling positive about restarting Scouting. Some respondents were not meeting, and one of the big reasons was virtual fatigue. We get it. We’re ready to get back to seeing each other in-person again — serving the community, going on fun outings and having outdoor adventures. But these activities must be done safely.

The Pacific Skyline Council will be following all local, state, and federal regulations for managing the spread of COVID-19 during our 2021 outdoor programs. These regulations change from time to time and it is anticipated that regulations in effect in 2021 will change to some degree by the summer of 2022. In light of this, we are planning protocols that we anticipate will be required and erring on the side of stricter protocols. We are using the American Camp Association’s field guide developed in cooperation with the CDC, as well as the most up to date guidance from the Boy Scouts of America and the health departments of the counties we operate in.

We are planning for possible protocols that include,

  • Pre-program medical screenings
  • Program check-in medical screenings
  • Physical distancing
  • Face coverings
  • Cleaning and sanitation of facilities and equipment
  • Special protocols for food service operations
  • Includes outdoor dining only
  • Minimizing shared restrooms

Specific protocols for your event will be determined based on current regulations and guidance. Prior to attending a program, participants and their families will receive information specific to that program. Attendees will also be briefed upon arrival at any program.

2021 Theme: Knights of the Scout-table

Update on Pacific Skyline Council Camping Programs

June 24, 2020

As always, the safety of all our members, volunteers, and employees is the Pacific Skyline Council’s top priority. As such, we have taken a careful and informed approach in evaluating the operation of our camping programs this year. Since the spread of this pandemic, we have been continually monitoring the situation, and consulting with health experts, government officials, and other camp professionals.

Cub Scout Day Camps

It is with a heavy heart that we announce, after a thorough review, the Pacific Skyline Council has decided to cancel our Cub Scout Day Camp programs. We know camp is an important part of every Scout’s summer, and these decisions were not made lightly.

Virtual Programming Continues

Finally, we will be continuing our efforts in virtual programming. Be sure to keep an eye on our virtual events page.

Program Cancellation Communication
Registrants for cancelled programs are being contacted directly regarding fees paid to the council.

Our council and staff are saddened that we are not able to serve Scouts at Day Camp. This is an extraordinarily challenging time; unlike anything we have experienced. Our hope is we all emerge from this challenging moment stronger than before.

Most importantly, we look forward to providing the full range of Scouting programs, including outdoor adventures, as soon as we can and as the situation allows.

We hope all our Scouting families stay healthy and positive in our current environment and join us in preparing for excellent future outdoor programs.
