Boy Scouts of America Cancel Summer Camping and Non-Virtual Activities
I sound like a broken record every day with nonstop cancellations. Well, get ready because it's only the beginning.
This past Thursday The Michigan Crossroads Council announced the cancellation of all summer camping activities as well as non-virtual activities. I didn't even know that "non-virtual" activities were even a thing with the Boy Scouts of America.
A statement from The Michigan Crossroads Council reads:
After a careful review of all currently available information related to the impact of the coronavirus and COVID-19 to our summer camping operations, the Board unanimously voted to cancel our 2020 summer resident camping season for all Scouts BSA, Cub Scout Resident, Venturing, and Great Lakes Sailing Adventure sessions.
You're going to tell me that they couldn't put all of their heads together to come up with some kind of a solution for these kids? There has to be a way to practice social distancing while camping, right? Keep the tents spaced out, fewer kids, one kid per tent or something along those lines. I'm sure there's more to it than just that but you would think something could be done.
According to WXYZ, The board added that the decision was made after consulting with the State of Michigan, local health departments, The American Camping Association, and the BSA National Office Outdoor Program Team.
It was also just announced that Oakland Couty Waterparks are going to close for the summer as well. These kids are going to be bored out of their freaking skulls this summer, not to mention driving their parents nuts.
