The Eberly Scout Reservation Action Plan

In order to protect the health and safety of the campers at Camp Conestoga and Buck Run, the council staff and volunteers have developed an action plan which details the various changes to camp procedures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It is important to remember that given the fluid and constantly changing situation, that this plan is always subject to change.

This plan can be viewed by clicking here. 

Supply Needs

  2. Hand Sanitizer (Large Pump Bottles)
  3. Disinfectant Wipes
  4. Rubbing Alcohol in Bulk

Any assistance in locating and obtaining an adequate supply of these materials would be greatly appreciated. Any questions can be directed to Martin.Barbie@scouting.org 

 

Update From National Regarding Health Forms

From the National Office:

We understand that physical exams may be difficult to obtain in some parts of the country because of COVID-19.  We also realize that this may present a hardship for some participants that typically schedule their physical exams prior to the camping season.   In light of COVID-19, the following guidance is being provided and will be in effect until August 31, 2020. The following one-time exceptions will only apply to BSA Accredited Council Camps and BSA High Adventure Bases.

For participants with a Part C completed on or after February 1, 2019:

  • Validity of any Part C completed on or after February 1, 2019 is extended until August 31, 2020.
  • Update Parts A and B of the AHMR within two weeks of your departure to camp.   Download here:  https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/  

Participants with no Part C or one prior to February 1, 2019, including new members:

  • Attach a completed alternate exam (sports, school, annual well exam at pediatrician) completed on or after February 1, 2019.  This will be accepted as a valid Part C until August 31, 2020.
  • Update Parts A and B of the AHMR within two weeks of your departure to camp.   Download here:  https://www.scouting.org/health-and-safety/ahmr/

There will be no other exceptions outside these parameters. If a participant does not meet the criteria above, National recommends the following are options to consider to obtain an examination:

  • Telephonic well appointment – Conducted with an individual’s existing health care provider (HCP) to complete the AHMR Part C exam and examiners signature virtually.
  • Professional or Compliance well exams – Adult participants whose profession requires regular well or compliance exams (emergency responders, pilots, etc.) may also be able to complete the exam requirements by having the conducting HCP complete Part C either during those well checks or telephonically. 
  • Local Community clinic or alternative HCP – If primary HCP is unavailable, use alternatives / clinics in the local community such as alternate HCP, CVS, Rite Aid, Care Now, etc.

An additional reminder is that Part C of the AHMR is required for any camps lasting longer than 72 hours. Anyone attending camp for less than 72 hours is only required to Parts A & B which does not require a doctor’s signature.
