Goshen Leader Update #5

Hello Goshen Leaders!

Elisabeth Warren returning with your final Goshen Leader update before the start of the summer season. The Goshen Staff have been hard at work the last few weeks eagerly waiting for your arrival!

BSA Medical Forms

All participants (youth and adults) are required to have a completed BSA Medical Form, Parts A, B, and C. Participants staying at camp for under 72 hours are only required to present Parts A and B. If you have questions regarding the medical form, please reference the “BSA Frequently Asked Questions Concerning the Annual Health and Medical Record” here: https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/medical-formfaqs/

BSA Pre-Event Screening Form

In accordance with BSA policy, we ask that all individuals complete the “BSA Pre-Event Medical Screening Checklist” prior to their arrival and bring the completed form to camp.

The BSA Pre-Event Screening Checklist can be found here: https://www.gotogoshen.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/2023-Goshen-Pre-Camp-Viral-Illness-Pre-Screening-Form.pdf

The BSA Unit Pre-Event Screening Form, to be turned in upon your camp medical check-in, can be found here: https://www.gotogoshen.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/2023-Goshen-Unit-Pre-Camp-Screening-Form.pdf

Camp Specific Contact Information

If you have any camp and program specific questions, I encourage you to reach out directly to the individual camp administrative teams. Camp summertime phone numbers, and year round emails, are available at https://www.gotogoshen.org/information/contact-us/

Shotgun Open Shoot at Scouts BSA Camps

Beginning this summer, a $5 entrance fee will be in place for the Goshen Scout Reservation Scouts BSA camp Shotgun Open Shoot programs. Scouts interested in participating must purchase a one-time use entry token from the trading post, to be turned in at the shotgun area for each open shoot session.

Wi-Fi at Camp

All Goshen Scout Reservation Leader’s Lounges are equipped with wi-fi for adult leader use. We ask that streaming be limited due to bandwidth.

Yours in Scouting,

Elisabeth Warren | Goshen Scout Reservation Director
