What is tick situation at camp

The Issue for units is less wheather things will clear up by the summer it is that we have to make large commitments now and in the near future for payments to Summit and Transportation we are in a position to have to make those commitments while in a time of great uncertainty we can't wait 4 to 6 weeks to see where we are Also with no meetings it is difficult to guage our families situations and know if they will still be able participate from a financial standpoint and if they feel safe. So while things may clear up by June for the Summit the units are in the hot seat now. Just want to give that perspective from the units and not Just Summit operations.

What are the Meals served at the Dining Hall (Brkfst, lunch, Dinner)? What are the Meal times?
Gary Thompson Troop 1444
01:03:34
Opinion on waterproof hiking shoes?
Judy Dye
01:06:00
I concur with previous comment. We are scheduled for the third week of June and concerned given the current uncertainties with camp and travel commitments so far in advance.
Jen L
01:06:06
Is there a suggestion on what scouts should pack their personal equipment in? Would normal plastic lockerbox work or a large duffle?
ArellanoChristian
01:07:05
Should we bring our troop flag?
ArellanoChristian
01:07:41
Our Troop has had a number of withdrawals from this year’s adventure given uncertainty due to health and financial concerns related to the pandemic. At this time we are just below the minimum contingent at 4 Scouts and 2 Adults. Will we still be able to participate if we cannot meet the minimum number?
Jerald Horner
01:08:23
Someone asked about ticks, same question for mosquito
Dan
01:08:40
Will adults be 2 per tent as well as youth?
Jen L
01:08:59
Do tents typically stay dry with all the rain? Is there a concern with them flooding?
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:09:56
Hey Dave! Meal times are yet to be set in stone, but in the past we've run from 7:30-9, lunch on the trail around 12:30, and dinner around 5-6:30.
Tom S
01:11:39
We have two leaders with expired Wilderness first aid training, but have 2 leaders that are currently taking the class to get certified, but classes have been suspended, what happens if they are resumed in time for them to be certified by our arrival in mid june?
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:12:23
For Christian: troop flags are always welcome in the campsites! We welcome troops to bring whatever they please to personalize their campsite within the realm of the Guide to Safe Scouting. If you have a question about what's allowed in the campsite areas, feel free to email me at Ryan

If your unit has both Summer Camp and Experience participants will you be in the Summer Camp tents and sites?
scoutmaster823
01:14:01
together?
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:14:08
For Jerald: mosquitoes tend to be around at the Summit, so bug spray will come in handy. The campsites are relatively removed from the waterfront, so this shouldn't be too much of an issue unless you're on the trail.
Allan
01:15:15
I second the question about 2 adults/tent.
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:15:43
For Dan: adults are accounted as 2 per tent when dealing equipment out, but more equipment can be requested at no additional cost. If you have other questions, feel free to shoot me an email at Ryan.Jackson@Scouting.org.
Allan
01:16:09
Thank you Ryan.
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:16:17
Of course!
Marco
01:17:02
the service project should it be an old long sleeve shirt??
Lindsay Bascom
01:17:02
Are final payments still due March 31?
Jen L
01:17:03
If we have 3 male and 1 female leader will we be given enough tents considering that?
Frank Bailey
01:17:19
For a Crew coming down from New York on Amtrak, since the return train leaves on Sunday morning from the Prince train station, can we do our Service Project on Saturday - the layover day?
Dan
01:17:30
Thanks, Ryan, for the answer on adult tenting. For example, at Jambo, aldult leaders were assigned (and received) one tent per adult leader.
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:18:14
For Jen: tents usually dry within a couple hours after it rains don't tend to flood, but I would come prepared to deal with some wet ground and potential mud. For your later question, we usually dish out 2 or 3 extra tents to account for YPT.
Mark Zimmerman
01:19:03
I would also hope it would be one adult per tent as adults are housing first aid kit and other troop material-2 per tent would be somewhat crowded.
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:19:21
For scoutmaster823: units cross-registered between scout camp and high adventure will be camping together
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:21:58
Hey Mark! Adults usually end up with their own tent, as we throw in a couple extra tents for each unit. If that isn't enough, we always have more than enough tents close by to cover whatever needs you have, such as adults having their own tent. It's common for adults to ask for their own tent.
Frank Bailey
01:22:18
Are we doing the check-in proces on the Summit property and not the Ruby Center?
G
01:22:40
I sent an email yesterday to summit.program@scouting.org updating our participant numbers so we can make final payment. Will I receive an email when they are updated? Also, we have Scouts in 3 areas: 1. want to do whitewater instead of aquatics, 2. ones that want to do the aquatics portion, and 3. boys who can't pass the swim test. With 3 adults, will we able to accommodate all these boys?
Dave Blum
01:23:25
IS it possible for Scoutmasters/Adults to bring and use a larger tent to accommodate Cots and more then 2-3 leaders with gear and first aid?
Jen L
01:25:23
In regards to the training, do we just need to bring our certificates for check in?
Alex’ iPhone
01:25:37
would you be able to administer a swim test if we won’t have enough time to do it before arrival
Jim Whitehead
01:26:25
Note that there should be NO food in tents due to bears!
Alex’ iPhone
01:26:41
our crew is 31 total will we get more than two picnic tables?
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:26:58
Hey Dave, bringing your own gear is all good with us!
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:27:56
Feel free to use our cots in your own tents if you please, equipment issued out on Sunday is yours for the week
Jen L
01:28:18
How close are we able to get to the campsite with our vehicles to unload gear?
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:29:02
For Alex, each crew gets 3 picnic tables automatically. As with anything else, we can always provide more picnic tables or dining flies to accommodate larger units upon request.
Ryan Jackson - POLS Director
01:30:17
For Jen, vehicles will have access to campsites on check-in day and will be moved to a parking area later on the day.
G
01:30:34
Did I just understand correctly that the Summit does not administer a swim test? So we do it at home prior to arrival?
Susan Bernal
01:31:10
Are swim tests needed for the summit experience?
Jen L
01:31:12
And do we need to have buddy tags colored and bring those too?
Scott
01:34:48
are you considering banning troops from vovid hotspots/
