As a first step to address the changes brought on by the current situation, the Council has decided to move the end date for camp card sales to August 15. Money should be turned in by August 10th. We will continue to update the council's policy as more information becomes available and decisions are made. Here are some ideas for alternate ways to sell:
Scouts should consider selling cards to their immediate and extended families.
While person to person sales are not currently recommended, Scouts may consider selling camp cards online or via social media and deliver via mail.
Recent studies have shown that the new coronavirus (COVID-19) may be able to survive on plastic for up to 72 hours. A recommendation is that each camp card sold be placed in a sealed envelope at least 3 days (72 hours) prior to mailing.
