Summer Camp 2021

Week 1

 

Welcome back!  Back to camping, back to summer, and Back to V-Bar!
 
This past year has been difficult on all of us.  Our Scouts have not been permitted to go camping, service projects are difficult to plan, no scouts were color guard for parades, troop meetings have been virtual, and we have all had to adapt to delivering scouting in unique ways.  
 
But there is light on the horizon.  As a society, we are adapting.  We have new vaccines coming available.  We have a year’s worth of experience at mitigating the risks.  And summer is approaching, with its typically decreased risk.
 
Your Summer Camp staff is eager to get back to camp, and even more eager to have your Scouts return to that quintessential scouting experience – summer camp.
 
There will some changes from previous years.  We do not know what all of the SELA Council, National Council, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Federal guidelines we will have to adhere to, but we are doing our best to plan for them.  
 
Expect the following:
1. All units will provide their own tents, and have only one person per tent.
2. If anyone is sick, has a fever, isn’t feeling well, been exposed to someone with COVID recently, etc. please STAY AT HOME.  
3. Temperature / Health checks immediately upon arriving at camp
4. Modified procedures while at camp
5. Reduced session sizes
6. Enhanced cleaning while at camp
(All of the above subject to changes / modifications / additions depending upon circumstances.)

Nestled in the pine trees and red clay dunes surrounding Morning Glory Lake in rural Mississippi lies the magnificent Scouts BSA Camp, Salmen Scout Reservation, commonly referred to as "Camp V-bar".  Beginning on Sunday going through Saturday, Scouts and Leaders are going to be embarking on Camp for fun and adventure at the Annual Scouts BSA Summer Camp.  This year's theme will be "Game Shows!".   

There will be a great and enthusiastic program ensuring that everyone has fun.

Cancellation Policy
The following policy statement is applicable to all council and district activities where a fee is collected by the Southeast Louisiana Council. Online convenience fees (if applicable) are not refundable. All activities are considered non-refundable unless there is a medical emergency or a death in the immediate family. Refund requests will only be considered if made in writing. A service charge of twenty-five percent (25%) of the activity fee will be assessed on all refunds to cover the costs incurred in preparation of the activity and processing the refund. Written refund requests must be submitted prior to the start of any event. Any requests after the activity will be considered only for personal illness or family emergencies. No refund requests will be accepted after ten (10) days following the end of the activity. Consideration for a full (minus charges and costs incurred) refund will be considered for special hardship cases and for advanced-level training courses such as Wood Badge. For major activities that require a non-refundable deposit, such as council contingents to the National Jamboree and Philmont, a full refund less the non-refundable deposit will be considered based on the time of the request and the council's ability to fill the slot with another participant. If the slot is not able to be filled, no refund will be available. No refunds of any fees are available until 30 days after the event. Refund checks will be issued to the individual or entity paying the original fee within 30 days of receipt of the request pending its approval. Fees are only transferable within the same unit to a Scout or adult leader not currently registered for that specific activity. If an activity is canceled or postponed due to weather, every effort will be made to reschedule the activity. If an activity is canceled and the participant cannot participate during the alternate date, the full fee will be refunded minus any service fees and costs incurred by the event prior to the cancellation. This amount may vary from event to event. Send all refund requests to the Program Director at tracy.jones@scouting.org.
