A Safe & Exciting Summer Adventure
As we all know, living with COVID has become reality. Please know that the Camp Staff at Verdugo Hills Council is committed to a safe and fulfilling summer of camping. Your Scout's safety is our number one concern! As LA County Protocols are changed or amended, our safe camping practices will change as well. For the most up-to-date Verdugo Hills Council Policies regarding summer camping, please visit it here.
Peanut Policy for Verdugo Hills Council Camps
Sensitivity to peanuts and food made with peanuts is an increasing risk to Scouts with such an allergy. At Verdugo Hills Council, we ask that no peanuts be brought into our camps.
Foods sent in for snack or lunch at our Cub Day Camp should be carefully checked to make sure they are peanut free. Any food or snacks sent via Camp Mail to our Resident Camp Programs should also be carefully checked as well!
This means that all food products can not contain peanuts and can not have the following warnings: “may contain…”, “processed in a facility…”, and “manufactured on shared equipment…”
Scout families can help ensure that our camps stay peanut free by reading packaging labels and by reminding children not to share food with other children at camp.
Thank you for your help in making summer camping in Verdugo Hills Council a healthy and rewarding experience for our Scouts!
