Summer 2021 FAQ

Updated June 24th, 2021

Chief Seattle Council is officially open this summer! On March 23rd, 2021 we were given Phase 3 guidance to operate camps.  Our staff and volunteers regularly update the playbook and the latest COVID webinar is posted below. 

The Washington State government has announced that the state will be opening up June 30.  Many of you will have questions about what this means for our summer camp programs. We plan to proceed with our current camp protocols for the time being.  Any updates to these procedures will be posted on our website and Facebook page as soon as possible.

We look forward to getting Scouts to camp this summer!
