  2. Obtain signed blue merit badge cards from your Scoutmaster before arrival.
  3. Bring your completed forms to camp check-in:  COVID-19 Screening Form for CVO and your BSA Annual Health & Medical Record Forms A, B1, B2.
  4. Understand the tenting requirements.

 

Accompanying ADULTS must have:

  1. A valid certificate of Youth Protection Training completion
  2. COVID-19 Screening Form for CVO - one per family, so count yourself on the form with your Scout(s)
