What's the definition of "recently" in regards to "recently tested positive?"
Rob Madden
40:11
so a positive test means that person goes home but their troop, assuming they are negative, just need to be careful but stays at camp, correct?

afternoon handicraft MB's take 1 hr class during free time on Monday. Scouts will do on their own throughout the week. recommended to do no more than 1 or 2.
KaLee Carter - Troop 430
46:02
Are there any other MB's classes offered besides the independent ones at Handicraft?
Kelly Parker
46:52
I was told that for MB credit in the 3 day sessions, you need to send a signed blue card with your Scout.
Rob Madden
49:07
For Astonomy, are there any daytime classes or are they all at night?
Jen Alcala
50:49
Are there prerequisites for the Astronomy MB
Sully Sullivan Troop 1776 Peoria
52:44
have had scouts with spread out schedules. Some classes marked them absent because they were late. Is this going to be an issue AGAIN this year??
Brendan Switts
53:34
Astronomy does not have any prerequisites
Kelly Parker
54:29
Bring protective straps that do not cut into the tree. The hammock also needs to be hung where it is not a hazard.
Papa-K
54:55
sully, that sounds like I will be training the staff to pay attention to late and not absent. we will work on that
Bob Ewald
55:42
Geronimo water tastes GREAT. !!!
Bob Ewald
56:45
Urine needs to be CC-- Clear and copious
Kelly Parker
57:23
ALSO--use the potties and keep the seats DOWN and the LIDS CLOSED. This stops flies and some smell.
Gecko
01:00:40
Please label your water bottles with Name and troop, many are lost each summer and not collected from lost and found
Mike Nyman
01:02:02
Based on the presentation, it was presented that the caravan tents are not for the leaders. Is that correct?
Kelly Parker
01:03:02
If there are spares in your site, you are welcome to use them.
Gecko
01:04:19
Pamela asked me to respond for her on the tents, sites are assigned out based on scout numbers for tents, scouts have priority on tents, if there are tents left after all scouts assigned to site from all units have a tent assigned then adults can use the tents
Mike Nyman
01:05:10
So, the adults should plan on bring a tent just in case
Lula
01:05:37
Yes, adults should plan on bringing a tent. Better to be prepared.
Papa-K
01:05:53
mike. yes. actually I bring a hammock but that's my preference
Lula
01:07:26
I believe it is just expected to be worn at dinner...correct me if I am wrong.
Papa-K
01:08:56
full field uniform (class a) expected at dinner and evening flags.
Papa-K
01:09:20
morning flags is not expected UNLESS you are doing the ceremony itself
Lula
01:09:27
The Permission slips are on the Geronimo website under the Forms & Resources. It might say 2021, but it is still good for 2022.
Mike Caruso
01:10:45
When does the Big G checklist come out?
Lula
01:11:03
If your troop did not get to sign up to do flag ceremony for the full camp, you can always do a flag ceremony in your campsite which will count for Big G.
Lula
01:12:14
I believe there was an email sent out to all Registrant Contacts with a copy of Big G. You may need to ask to have that forwarded to you if you are not that contact person.
Gecko
01:12:21
We really appreciate all the units that came up in the Spring to do service projects, some great work has been done and I’m sure more will happen during camp.
Papa-K
01:12:28
the big g list is recently completed, I think we will make it public in the next day or two
Brendan Switts
01:12:51
We sent it via email right before Downhill, but you can also find it here: https://scoutingevent.com/attachment/BSA010/document_16522919180_11327.pdf
Papa-K
01:13:04
ooopss... yep, the big g requirements are already public.
Mike Caruso
01:14:34
👍
Lula
01:14:42
We donate too many things at the end of summer. Please put NAME/TROOP
KaLee Carter - Troop 430
01:15:34
if they have a partial MB done, can they complete the rest of it at Geronimo without having to signup for the class. Example- shooting sports?
Lula
01:15:38
Awesome Doug...so much wisdom and examples from your experience at camp.
Chris Steckling
01:15:43
so a positive test means that person goes home but their troop, assuming they are negative, just need to be careful but stays at camp, correct?
Bob Ewald
01:15:47
Is there a separate fee for Horse ride ?
Walter Faustlin
01:15:57
For troops showing up on Saturday will dinner and Sunday breakfast be offered

KaLee Carter - Troop 430
01:16:12
Trail ride fees are $20 per
Lula
01:16:53

Kelly Parker

Where will this recording be posted so we can review it?
Scott Chamoff
01:19:02
We have some scouts signed up for CIT, separately from the unit camp week. I haven't seen much information on this. Do we just bring them up on the Sunday before their CIT session?
Lula
01:19:08
Parital Merit Badges: If you have partial MB's, you can work with the staff during the afternoon open sessions. Bring blue cards for those scouts so that the staff can sign off on the specific items that were completed at camp.
Stephen Vaaler T109
01:20:23
We signed up for a trail ride as a troop and paid for everyone (18 slots) in advance. If we only have 15 that end up wanting to go, would we be refunded for the other 3 spots?
Lula
01:22:11
CIT-The Leader's Guide states that they should arrive on Sunday between 11 am and Noon. We want to get them settled before the big rush in the afternoon.
Mike Nyman
01:23:10
If a scout is signed up for both First Aid and Emergency Preparedness, can they still do EP if the First Aid will not be completed until the end of the week?
Bob Ewald
01:23:16
I believe this item is on the inspection sheet. Old commissioner here.
Lula
01:23:58
The Pre-requisite for EP is First Aid so no. They can take EP the next year.
Bob Ewald
01:24:31
I usually give them a speech about how flies eat. After that they never forget to close the lid.
Brendan Switts

Jennifer and Norm
01:26:41
Is there a specific time we need to vacate on the final Saturday?
Chris Steckling
01:28:04
Sorry to repeat a question, but Rob also asked this earlier, and I didn't see an answer. If a scout tests positive for Covid, are they sent home?
Lula
01:28:07
You need to be out of camp by 10 AM on Saturday. You will work with your commissioner to schedule a check out time.
Chris Steckling
