Update on Camp Oljato Summer Camp
May 20, 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.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce, after a thorough review, the Pacific Skyline Council has decided to suspend operations at Camp Oljato for 2020. We know camp is an important part of every Scout’s summer, and these decisions were not made lightly.
In an effort to provide outdoor programs for our Scouts, we are making plans now for Scouts BSA Day Camp programs, to be held in July and/or August on the San Francisco Peninsula. We aim to release details of these programs in early June.
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.
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.
