Covid Camping 2020
CTSR is available for unit camping during the summer of 2020. However, it will be individual camping units and not a summer camp program.
 
As we have told our French Creek units, they will be allowed to camp if they follow State, Federal, Local health and safety guidelines based on the county they camp in.
 
Things allowed at CTSR: Camp site tent camping. (excluding Upper and Lower Drake and Perry) Campsites have running water and pit latrines available and you will have access to 590 acres of land and water toto explore and entertain yourselves all while social distancing. Youth must always be supervised!
 
Things not available or allowed: shower house, building access (like off season rentals) or program areas. CTSR Boats, kayaks, shooting sports equipment, and climbing tower are not available. No alcohol, pets, personal or CTSR shooting sports equipment will be used. Smoking is to be done only in a vehicle. No more than one vehicle and trailer in a camp site area. Youth must always be supervised!
 
Cost: Camp charge for your unit is $15 per night/day if only doing a one-day event. As a reminder… if you plan to spend more than 72 hours camping, youth and adults must have health forms per BSA requirements. Check in would normally be after 5:00 PM Friday night (Similar to off season property rental) and check out by 11:00 am Sunday but the facility is available during the week. Check in Friday night and check out Sunday would be charged $30 as an example. Payments must be done by credit card prior to attending camp with Sue Eckbloom in the council office.
 
What to bring: Food, toiletries, tents and whatever else your unit usually brings on a weekend campout.
 
Please understand that we want to make CTSR available to our Scouting families but, know that if the privilege is abused it will be shut down for everyone.
 
Units will be expected to keep their campsite and the entire camp clean. Trash must be brought to dumpster near Ranger shed when leaving camp. Units are expected to clean their facilities before leaving. Make sure all faucets are shut off to avoid excess water waste.
 
How To Reserve a site: Email Sue Eckbloom Susan.eckbloom@scouting.org when you would like to attend CTSR this summer with the accompanying excel spreadsheet and she will get back to you as quickly as possible. We expect camping to be available from June 26- August 4 and can be used on weekends or during the week. Units must register to use camp via email to Susan.eckbloom@scouting.org. No online reservations will be taken.
 
If your unit is interested in doing a service project at camp please let us know and we will work on arranging something as CTSR can always use a little TLC from our Scouts.
 
Call or email Sue if you have questions.
