COVID-19 Communication

Camp Taskforce Updates

As was shared in the March Nor’Easter and roundtables, our 2021 Camp Taskforce is made up of an intentional cross-section of volunteer leaders and staff.  We have been meeting to facilitate the multiple discussions needed around guidance and/or potential alterations to offering safe summer camp programs at Camp C.S. Klaus this year while we continue to navigate a COVID-19 environment.  

You can expect communications that provide guidance or examples to come out via the monthly council newsletter-The Nor’Easter, roundtable meetings, special e-mails, and social media posts.  The goal of the committee is to have all guidance around the major areas that pertain to summer camp operations to you by, or at, the May Roundtables which gives ample time for any unit-level planning and coordination. 

Unit Restart Guidelines

The Northeast Iowa Council has established a set of guidelines  to help your Unit Leadership facilitate the conversations needed when planning your next activities during the Coronavirus pandemic. These do not replace or supersede State or local Guidelines or the Guide to Safe Scouting.
