Day Camp Safety during the COVID-19 Epidemic

Protecting our campers, staff, and guests at Camp Miakonda is our highest priority. Thank you for trusting in our processes to help protect your loved ones.

Our Camp Miakonda safety protocols are based on the requirements and recommendations of BSA National, Ohio Department of Health, and Lucas County Department of Health. Protocols currently in place as of this writing include daily health screenings at-home and on-site (which includes temperature checks), social distance, masks, handwashing, cleaning program equipment, and more. We expect these protocols will be updated as more information is learned throughout Spring and into Summer. All rules and guidelines will be followed as we have a safe, educational, and fun Day Camp season. Remember that risk still exists everywhere; our goals include managing those risks in order to serve our campers and their families in the safest manner possible.

This COVID-19 and Cub Scout Day Camp document outlines  the specific COVID-19 compliance procedures are based on the most current guidance from health and safety authorities, such as the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), and appropriate state and local government agencies.  We will continue to make updates to these COVID-19 protocols to ensure your Scout’s health and safety.

You are also invited to see Camp Miakonda’s current safety protocols at this link: www.erieshorescouncil.org/Miakonda.

  • 10 people per den, including staff members and adults

  • Family Night
    • A limited number of people allowed at once
    • Could be split into two parts
    • Campfire program

IMPORTANT DAY CAMP INFORMATION

Camp Activities:           
Campers will have the opportunity to participate in many fun outdoor opportunities.  These opportunities may include swimming, archery, BB guns shooting, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), handicrafts, games, Scout Skills, nature, fishing, and Family Night.

Repeater Dens:
We now have a special “repeater Den.” This gives Campers who are attending multiple weeks a chance to do new and different activities while still visiting all their favorites too! These Dens are multi-level, and if we have enough Campers, we will have a Tiger/Wolf/Bear Repeater Den and a Webelos/ AOL Repeater Den. Some of last year’s activities include making and racing cardboard boats in STEM, cooking in Scout skills, free swim in Aquatics, and more! PLEASE NOTE: Repeater dens are an option, but if a Camper would rather stay in their rank specific Den because a friend is attending that week or any reason, that is an option as well, but they will be doing some activities they have done before.

Health Forms:
Everyone, both youth, and adult, who attends or participates in Day Camp is REQUIRED to submit a Boy Scouts of America Annual Health and Medical Record on file by the Monday morning of their selected Day Camp session. For Day Camp, Parts A and B are required. A copy of the BSA Annual Health and Medical Form may be attained by visiting the Scout office or online here.

Financial assistance is available for all Erie Shores Council Scouts that are unable to financially pay for the summer camp programs such as Day Camp.
