Each participant must have a completed BSA Medical Form (Parts A and B only- all participants) and the Minnesota Shooting Sports Waiver (youth only). Additionally in 2020, each participant will need to bring a completed Participant Health Screening Checklist when you arrive to camp.
What should I do if I have dietary restrictions?
We try to provide healthy and safe meals for every participant. Please be sure to note on your registration any dietary needs or health concerns at least 1 week prior to the start of camp. Typically we are prepared to accommodate vegetarian, gluten free, lactose free, and peanut/nut free as long as we have enough notice prior to the event.
What are the payment timelines and refund options?
Registration will open September 8, 2020.
All payments are due in full at the time of registration. If a family decides to no longer attend camp due to health risk, we will refund all fees paid if the request is received by our office at least one week in advance of the start of their camp session. Requests outside of this timeframe will be evaluated individually.
Will There be changes to the camp schedule and program offerings in 2020?
Overall camp capacities as well as group sizes have been adjusted to follow current guidelines from the MN Departments of Health. The program schedule will look slightly different than years past. During the session you will still participate in all of our traditional Spooky-Ree activities such as Crafts, Nature, BB Guns, and Archery. However, this year groups will travel to each station together as a unit. Additionally, large group gatherings such as assemblies and campfire programs will be replaced with Pack/Family level versions in your campsite.
