Grimes Summer Camp Closes
Our number one priority is the safety of our Scouting family. During the past 7 weeks we have been reviewing local, state, and federal guidelines, we have been in contact with the local health departments, and we have been in consultation with doctors, Scouters, parents, staff and our council executive board regarding our long-term summer camp at Camp Grimes. We all know and agree that the summer camp experience is a rite of passage and a time to build life-long memories. However, with the ever-changing nature of the corona virus and after careful review of all currently available information related to the impact of the coronavirus and COVID-19 on summer camp operations set to begin on June 14th, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 summer camp season at Camp Grimes.
This decision was not easy and weighs heavy on everyone involved. We all know this situation is extremely fluid and seems to change daily related to what we can and cannot do. As we are patient, we anticipate the NC Governor to rollout the state’s plan and get more detailed information about phase 2 and phase 3.
Cub Scout Day Camp Moved To August
After much deliberation, Day Camp has been moved to August 3-7. This camp will be combined with all the other districts so get your space early.
