What does an in-person Inductions Weekend look like?

All candidates will report to the camp parking lot Friday evening between 7:00pm and 7:30pm. Please do not arrive after 9:00pm. Departure from camp is expected to be around 11:00am Sunday morning.

Expectations for safety: masks for all attendees are required, as well as social distancing, and symptom checks for all arriving cars. If one person in a car does not satisfy the health screening, all participants in the car will be asked to leave. Please fill out the COVID-19 waiver and bring it with you. Participants will be expected to maintain 6 feet of distance from one another throughout the entire weekend. Our ceremonies team is taking special precautions to make sure all health and safety concerns are addressed.

The BSA Medical form Part A & B must be signed by a parent or guardian and brought to check-in.
