In the interest of the health and safety of our Scouts and leaders, Central Florida Council continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Florida and worldwide. Following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC,) and national/state/local phased-approach to reopening, Camp La-No-Che is OPEN and accepting camper registrations.

Since last year, the staff and volunteers of Central Florida Council, specifically those tasked with program and maintenance at Camp La-No-Che and Cub Scout Day Camps, have continued review/revision of our policies and procedures intended to keeping Scouts and families safe as campers at La-No-Che.

The Central Florida Council, BSA and Camp La-No-Che expect all campers, families, and guests to review and agree to the guidelines for safe operations, and follow the currently established Covid-19 guidelines set forth by the Central Florida Council Covid-19 Task Force.

• Wear a mask properly while indoors at all times, unless seated and eating or drinking.
• Wear a mask properly when social distancing is not possible indoors or outdoors.
• Social Distance: 6ft or greater when possible.
• Wash/Sanitize hands after using the restroom, before meals and as frequently as possible.

All participants and Staff agree to these standards; those not in compliance I will be asked to leave camp and will do so in a Scout-like manner without fail.
Campers, participants, family, and Staff will be informed of current guidelines regarding Covid-19 upon arrival and will agree in writing to follow them. Campers who are unable or unwilling to do so are asked not to attend camp; we look forward to their participation in the future when these temporary measures are lifted.

In our continued effort to keep camp and campers safe, camp-wide participant policies and camper guidance has been developed and is shared in the document(s) below.

Some policies/expectations included are:

MANDATORY Pre- and Arrival Screening of all campers and guests, including temperature check. Temperature checks will also be required daily while at camp.

Mask/facecover use required while in dining hall, trading post, and when a 6-foot distance can not be reasonably maintained. Masks will be available at no cost to campers.

Anyone with symptoms that develop during their stay at camp will be removed from camp facilities safely. This may impact campers in the symptomatic person’s unit/site, as their removal may be required as well.

Q: What if I cannot get a new Part C, pre-placement exam because my healthcare provider is not taking well care exams now?

As of 5/11/2020, BSA Accredited Council Camps and High Adventure Bases have been supplied a way to accept an extension of validity of the pre-participation exam (Part C) of the AHMR. We expect camps and bases will publish their policies individually, so please direct your specific situation to the camp you plan to attend this summer. This option may not be available for all councils as it may conflict with states’ camping statutes or requirements. This option does not apply to any unit activity or programmatic requirements such as for SCUBA.

Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. If you are in this group, please ensure you have approval from your health care provider prior to attending camp.

We also encourage anyone whose medical condition or history has changed significantly since their last physical exam to get approval from their health care provider prior to attending camp.
