Important Update on Camping

No overnight camping for youth, until further notice, in Ontario or Quebec.

Starting September 1, 2020, we have moved to Stage 2 of our Welcome Back to Scouting plan (for more information about SC Stage 2, please click here: https://www.scouts.ca/news-and-events/overview.html).

As we plan for restarting Scouting in person, please be reminded that we also need to consider the Ontario and Quebec Provincial Orders and guidelines in place, as well as local and municipal regulations.

In Stage 3 of the Ontario plan, there is currently an order in effect that restricts overnight camping for youth groups. This restriction includes activities conducted by Scouts Canada, and extends to all Councils in Ontario and Quebec. Similar restrictions in Quebec also prevent overnight camping with youth groups.

Ontario and Quebec COVID restrictions mean that overnight camping for youth is not permitted at this time, and this will remain the case until the restriction is updated or lifted.

We will keep you up to date on any developments on this front, and we will communicate with all of our Groups through social media and through our Relationship Managers/Group Support Scouters to let you know when we are allowed to re-commence camping in Ontario or Quebec.

In the meantime, we encourage all our Groups to have fun and to create memories on day trips and during regular meetings.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Group Commissioner, Relationship Manager/Group Support Scouter, or the Council Key 3.

This message also appears on the Council FB Group and has been provided to all RMs/GSS to pass on to Group Commissioners and Section Scouters.
