Camp Fleischmann--COVID-19

Summer 2020 didn't look like all the summers that have come before or any of the other summers that will come after. What we do know is that camp plays a vital role in the lives of our Scouts and Scouters. At this time, we are taking steps to determine how we can best serve our Scouting community for summer 2021, following national, state and local guidelines for the ongoing COVID-19 changes.

Because Camp Fleischmann 2020 was not able to operate this summer as normal, so we held CF2U, a week long virtual camp that Scouts could participate in.  Scouts, Scouters and families participated in morning Polar Bear Yoga, flag ceremonies, 15 live Merit Badge classes for Scouts, demonstrations, Scoutmaster trainings, theme days, OA social, Pow Wow, service projects, evening activities and campfires. More than 160 Scouts and Scouters participated from 19 states across the US. We brought camp to you! 

We are currently considering opportunities to serve our Scouting community in ways we have not previously considered. We will anxiously await a vibrant experience at Camp Fleischmann in 2021, when our Camp Fleischmann family will welcome everyone with open arms to experience all of the adventures Camp Fleischmann has to offer!
