Goshen Scout Reservation COVID-19 Guidelines: UPDATED/REVISED

Good afternoon Goshen Family,

Thank you all for your patience and understanding after yesterday’s announcement regarding the Goshen Scout Reservation and COVID-19. We would like to make the following change to yesterday’s statement.

  • Campers will be required to wear face masks in all indoor settings, but will NOT be required to mask when outdoors.
    Staff will be required to mask in indoor and outdoor settings.
  • Units who are arriving via bus and personal transportation may arrive together on Sunday (July 10th). A staff member will be present upon arrival to complete the check-in and Medical Check process with each unit. Program will begin the afternoon of Monday, July 11th.
  • Scouts will be able to complete merit badges next week, and are not anticipated to receive partial credit. To accommodate for the missed Monday morning merit badge period, a Friday merit badge period will be held.
  • Units who attended Camp Bowman and Camp Marriott during the Week 1 session are encouraged to test if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, however the potential exposure rate within scouts is expected to be low, as all current active cases are within the staff body.

The health and safety of the scouts and staff at the Goshen Scout Reservation remains our top priority. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we navigate this developing situation, and hope to see many of you over the coming weeks at Goshen.

Any questions may be directed to the Goshen Information email at info@gotogoshen.org.

Yours in Scouting,

The Goshen Management Team
