2020 Winter Camp

posted Nov 10, 2020, 9:50 AM by Sapona District

When: December 26th-29th, 2020

Where: Camp John J. Barnhardt

Cost: $85 Scouts/$35 Leaders before November 28th. 

$110 Scouts/$60 Leaders after November 28th.

We have designed our 2020 Winter Camporee at John J. Barnhardt to give your troop as much of the camp experience as possible during NC's Phase 2.5. We've made sure your troop will have fun and designed camp to  minimizing interactions between units.  We are committed to serving your troop and ensuring your health. 

This year, the Camp Barnhardt Summer Staff will be leading many/most of the activities and badges. We expect you'll find our offerings both fun and educational! We invite both Scouts, BSA troops and Venture Crews to attend. Out of Council units are welcome!

2020 Winter Camporee activities start Sunday, December 27th at 9am. Many troops will want to camp out on the 26th; We'll be happy to check you in then, but dinner is not provided on the 26th. All meals on Sunday and Monday are provided. Breakfast will be provided on Tuesday, December 29th as we wrap up our camp. Activities and badges will run all day on Sunday and Monday. 

Early Bird Cost: Your cost is only $85 for Scouts and $35 for leaders until November 28th. This cost includes: T-shirt, patch, program supplies and 7 meals. After November 28th, the cost will increase to $110 per Scout and $60 per Leader. Due to the requirement that participants monitor temperatures and possible symptoms for two weeks prior to attending, absolutely no additional registrations  will be accepted after December 11th. 

We have planned three scheduling options contingent on NC's Phase guidelines at the time of the camp. We are locking activity registration until closer to camp, but are happy to announce your troop can participate in activities and badges like: Cycling, COPE, Wilderness Survival, Cooking, Automotive Maintenance, Disc Golf, Geocaching, Drafting, Emergency Preparedness, Polar Plunge, etc. We're also offering Nighthawks programming as we know many new scouts missed out on this opportunity due to camp being cancelled. Camp Barnhardt features one of the best first-year programs, so consider that an option for your scouts. We'll also be offering some of our Barnhardt Brand courses for 13 year olds and older as well as CIT training for 14/15 year olds interested in joining the Barnhardt Staff. 

All participants must complete the 14 day temperature and self monitoring form. This form must be signed by parent/guardian and be brought to camp and presented at check-in
