Bucktail Council to announce COVID-19 procedures to keep everyone safe at Spirits at Mountain Run Fundraiser

The Bucktail Council will announce a COVID-19 health safety plan to keep our guests at Camp Mountain Run safe for the Spirits at Mountain Run fundraiser.  On Monday, July 8th and 20th the Health & Safety Committee presented to the Council Camping Committee and the Executive Board, respectively, a plan for the camp to keep our guests safe during future events.  (As you know, the camp cancelled Cub Scout and Scouts BSA summer camp this year due to the restrictions from COVID-19.)  This plan will be finalized soon and will then be applied to the Spirits at Mountain Run fundraiser.
