As you know, our camp properties and ‘in-person’ Scouting operations were suspended through the month of April when Minnesota and South Dakota closed schools and extra-curricular activities. We’re eagerly looking forward to when we can resume normal operations.

At this point we continue to plan accordingly for the successful opening and operation of our camps and events this summer season. However, our volunteers and pro staff are working on Plan B options while working to have a successful summer that goes as planned. Please note that the Sioux Council has adopted the National Camp Accreditation policy of making any postponement or cancelation decisions 30-days out from any one event. We are also basing these decisions on the current State, Federal and Local government guidelines and regulations.  

At the same time, please know that we will be as flexible and accommodating as we can in light of the current hardships that we are all experiencing. We are planning for and expect our summer activities, courses, and camps to take place as scheduled. In the unfortunate circumstance that camps and events are forced to close this summer, all fees paid will be refunded.

We value you and we look forward to seeing you this summer.

 

This course is required for (Scouts, BSA) leaders of High Adventure Trips.  Is is also a good training for leaders of any outing.  Wilderness First Aid (WFA) is a course for everyone planning a remote high adventure ranging from lay responders to medical professionals.  It focuses on prevention, assessment, and treatment for an ill or injured person in a remote evnironment where definitive care by a physician and/or rapid transport is not readily available.  This is defined as being an hour or more away from advanced care.  Participants need to be CPR certified before attending this class.

 

Participant Fee...$100.00 (Must be paid with registration)
