Update to BSA policies

Posted by jcrabb on Jun 5 2020 - 3:58pm
Hi Troop 
 
Hope all is well. Since BSA has arbitrarily chosen June 8th as the date we can meet in person with some modifications. Also we would like to set up our 1st troop meeting on June 15 at 7pm which would be full class A at the scout house if it is available. If not we can still meet in the Brea park and keep the meeting to 1 hour since we will not have restrooms. Please see the attached guide lines and we must ad hear to the new policies. 
Currently there are no groups meeting at the scout house and we took our charter rep by surprise in asking if we can meet. So they do not have a policy in place for any group to use the scout house. Once this is in place and we hope it will be by June 15 we can resume using the scout house.
 
Thanks James

Orange County Council Update #8 on COVID-19 and its Impact on Program Delivery
To Our Scouting Family and Friends,
The Orange County Council has been closely monitoring safety guidelines from the various governing agencies. As Scouts, we have a responsibility to our community to do everything in our power to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Fortunately, our Scouts have stood strong throughout this pandemic and continued their adventures in new ways by following our safety guidelines.
Thank you to our volunteers and staff for their work to keep Scouting alive and prepared for the day we can get back to Scouting. And that day has come! We are happy to provide this update on unit meetings and summer programs. Please keep in mind that safety is our top priority and we will continue to monitor the COVID19 situation and make adjustments as appropriate.
Scouting Reopens their Doors
Effective Monday, June 8, the William Lyon Homes Center for Scouting will open with limited staff. The majority of our executive team will continue to work remotely. The Santa Ana Scout Shop is scheduled to open June 18. Other Orange County Scout Shops will remain closed until further notice.
In addition, Units are welcome to begin meeting starting June 8th using the following safety guidelines:
  • Approval must be secured from the charter organization and whoever governs your meeting location to begin meeting.
  • It is still the decision of parents to include their children in meetings and activities.
  • Adult leaders must ensure that social distancing is enforced, and face masks are used per State, County and CDC guidelines.
  • It is recommended that units begin meeting as dens/patrols to keep groups smaller and work up to full unit meetings and overnight activities.
Adventure Card Sale reopens on June 8. More information will be sent out to the Adventure Card units tomorrow with information regarding the sale, safety recommendations, and storefront sign-ups for Stater Bros. and Irvine Property locations. If your unit is interested in joining the sale, please contact Andrew Royster at andrewr@ocbsa.org.
In order to maintain limited social circles, In-person district and council meetings, activities, and programs are still closed through June 30. Virtual meetings will continue as scheduled.
Council properties remain closed through June 30.
Program Update
  • District or Volunteer managed day camps have moved to virtual programs. In-person day camps will be coordinated on council properties. See Summer Adventures Begin update listed below.
  • National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) has been cancelled for 2020. Thank you to Arnold Kim and his team for the work they did to prepare for this activity. It would have been amazing.
Summer Adventures Begin July 6th
We are thrilled to finally announce that enrollment for summer programs at Newport Sea Base and the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center will be opening this week. It has been a challenging few months for all, and without a doubt there will be tough times for the foreseeable future. That is why we have worked hard to prepare programs and redesign curriculum in order to offer the opportunity for youth to regain some normalcy in their lives, like camp, even if it is a bit different this summer.
We are preparing these properties and staff to deliver an outstanding summer program. It will however look very different than past summers. Newport Sea Base and the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center will reopen to the public on Monday, July 6 with summer day programs specially created for elementary age (Cub Scouts) and middle and high school age (Scouts BSA and Venturing) campers. The programs running Monday through Friday or consecutive Saturdays and/or Sundays will follow a strict set of enhanced safety protocols developed with guidance from the CDC, ACA, health departments, and the Boy Scouts of America.
A major change in this summer program, besides maximum class sizes of ten or less, is the number of classes/tracks a participant can take per week. In order to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19 in our camp setting, we must limit interactions. This means participants can take only one class/track per week.  We have done our best to create half-day or full-day programs that are attractive to our general community youth as well as Scouting youth. These program tracks are predesignated and cannot be changed.  If there are multiple tracks that you would love to take, it will happen over multiple weeks. We hope you understand. Further information on these exciting programs including virtual camps will be released later this week with enrollment opening for all programs no later than Monday June 8.
Overnight programs at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center remain closed and we hope to resume these in late August.
The first programs at Oso Lake Scout Camp to reopen will likely be a family-based camping supported by our volunteer Campmaster Corps. Enrollment for this program should open in the coming weeks.
Schoepe Scout Reservation at Lost Valley, including Scouts BSA summer camp, remains closed through July 15. This pains us as much as it does you. If your unit was scheduled to attend Lost Valley in a cancelled week you have several options. Troops will have the option to transfer to a later week at Lost Valley, transfer funds on an individual basis to Newport Sea Base or Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center summer programs , transfer their unit deposits to Lost Valley 2021, or receive a full refund for all monies not transferred. The Lost Valley staff will reach out to each unit to coordinate this process.
Scout On
Thank you again for helping strengthen the Scouting program. Together, we continue to make a difference in the lives we touch and the communities we serve.
Be Safe. Be Strong. Social Distancing is keeping us apart, but Scouting is keeping us connected. Visit the Council Resource Hub at ocbsa.org/resourcehub #ScoutingSafeAndStrong

 

Summer Camp and Covid 19 Update

Posted by tahuynh on May 18 2020 - 8:33pm

We received notice from The BSA Orange and Western Los Angeles County Councils that all programs will be closed until June 30th. Our Troop Committee met to discuss our Summer Camp options. Summer camp at Camp Whitsett will be cancelled. Refunds will be issued upon receipt from Western Los Angeles Council. On June 1st, The Orange County Council will provide further information for hopefully resuming programs. The Committee discussed a couple of Summer Camp options depending on when our Troop is allowed to resume operations. We will update you as soon as we can.
