2020 Summer Programs
UPDATE: Due to the continuing COVID-19 threat, all Council programs cancelled through August 31, 2020. Based on guidelines from the CDC and out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our members, at it’s May 19, 2020 meeting, the Suwannee River Area Council Executive Committee has determined that we must cancel all council programs beginning immediately through August 31, 2020. This was not an easy decision by the Executive Committee, but it was determined to be the best course of action to protect the welfare of our youth and leaders.
This cancellation, includes Scouts BSA Summer Camp, Cub Scout Day Camp, National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT), OA Summer Bash and Summer Fellowship, Venturing Super Weekend and Fun Day, as well as the Wallwood Workday.
The Scout Shop remains from 10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Monday through Friday. No more than five customers will be allowed in the Scout Shop and front counter area at a time, including children. All other social distancing protocols will remain in place.
