COVID-19 Camp Updates
Summer 2021 Update:
As we’re planning for 2021, we’re glad we operated camp in 2020. We will be open in 2021, barring a mandate that we cannot operate. We learned that our Health and Safety protocols are effective, and as far as we know, no staff or guests contracted the COVID-19 virus. We continue to gather resources as more information about the virus is learned, and we will build off our 2020 success to ensure a safe camp in 2021. Additionally, we have many advantages that work within our program and camp facilities, including individual tenting opportunities and large outdoor facilities.
As we continue to learn more about COVID-19, we are working towards bringing elements of a normal year into our COVID operating plan, such as merit badges and older Scout programs for individual campers and reopening the inside of the trading post, dining hall, and more. We are asking that units starting gathering individual merit badge choices from their Scouts and have them rank their afternoon and older Scout activities.
Camping Director Brian Halloran wants to hear from you if you have concerns about attending in 2021. Running camp in 2020 was not easy, but Tomahawk opened because we believed our protocols were safe and that kids needed camp more then ever. Please reach out- 612-261-2456 or [email protected] so we can discuss your concerns. Below are resources built for 2020 season:
