Message from GNYC Regarding Summer Camp

I received this email from GNYC regarding summer camp and I want to pass it on to you. As it stands, the summer camp program is back to normal as in previous years but I do not see any changes as far as the requirements for proof of Covid vaccinations. So for our purposes, we should prepare the summer camp medicals as if the vaccinations and the Covid form as still required. If this changes I will inform you as soon as I know. Any questions, comments or concerns about the medicals please reach out to me. Specific questions about summer camp program, please reach out to Anthony.

Attention all Ten Mile River Scout Campers and Leaders,

New York has successfully reached the significant benchmark of a 70% vaccination rate, as such the Governor has announced a roll back of much of the COVID-19 guidance that will significantly impact our summer camp programs.

As a result of the recently updated policies Ten Mile River’s Summer Camps at Aquehonga, Keowa, and Ranachqua, are planning to run their program and merit badge schedules in their traditional manner. We’re excited to be able to offer a camp program that will be more familiar to our Scouts and units. While we will be taking some additional steps to ensure participant safety, we can not wait to return to summer camp beginning in July, and we’re looking forward to seeing you back at TMR.

Please check out this FAQ page for additional notes and updates for this summer at TMR- This link will continue to be updated as we get clarity from local institutions and move forward with our Summer Camp plans: https://tenmileriver.org/faq2021/

We are still monitoring the situation closely and working with our local Department of Health and Sullivan County Public Health Services for any further clarification and guidance.

Recap from Last Night’s Meeting

Hello All,

With summer camp a few short months away, I want to remind those of you that still need to submit medicals that I will be at the Year End BBQ on Friday, June 18 and that will be the last time to submit them to me in person. You can email me the medicals at [email protected]

Last night, Assistant Scoutmaster Andrew Vannata went over Merit Badge scheduling for summer camp with the Scouts. Please sit down with them and take a look at their schedules. Please also remember to have them bring their schedules with them to camp when they come.

Lastly, if you owe money for camp, please contact Anthony for the amount owed and you can bring your check to the Year End BBQ or bring it to Anthony’s house.

Any questions, comments or concerns please let us know.

Good evening everyone, Hope all is well. These past several weeks have been crazy with the church not being available. I am happy to announce that we will be able to meet Tomorrow, Friday June 11th at Trinity. This will be our last regular meeting of the 2020-2021 Scouting Year! We will be meeting at 7:30 pm @ Trinity in the basement. We will focus and work on any last minute rank advancement. Uniform for the night is Class B- Shirts.

Those scouts who have not yet picked out their merit badges for summer camp, will have an opportunity to work with the leaders tomorrow to select the badges they would like to take this summer.

With regards to Summer Camp, if you have still not signed up for camp, there is still time to sign-up. I highly encourage all scouts to attend this year for two weeks, since there was no camp last year. Parents are always welcome to attend. The dates for Summer Camp are August 8th to the 21st.

Lastly, our End of the Year BBQ is on Friday, June 18th at 7:30 pm. As always families are encouraged to attend. This year, we are also inviting our 9 Cub Scouts and their families who crossed over last month.
