Have your Summer Camp Plans Changed? Think about Camp Jayhawk!

Many troop's plans for this summer have been greatly compromised.  Summer Camps have postponed or closed theirs camps for the summer based on state health guidelines.  Others are considering this action.  Still other camps are beginning to restrict where troops that are attending come from.  This also applies to high adventure treks. In addition to council camps, parents are expressing concerns about their troop's plans to travel out of state and troop leadership is discussing what to do if they were to have a Scout contract COVID-19 at camp and how to get them back home without the troop's plans being altered.  All this has caused a number of inquiries about coming to Camp Jayhawk this summer.

We are ready to handle your troop should this be an option.  Our camp leadership is prepared to work with you on logistics and what session you would like to attend.  We have planned for an additional session as overflow to accommodate any potential demand.  To help make your decision to "stay local" easier, we will:

  • Work with you on payment.  We understand that many of you have already paid a camp to attend and need to secure a refund from that camp before you have the funds to pay for this camp.  We will discuss extended terms.
  • You pay the lowest rate.  If the summer camp you are attending has a lower fee than our camp, we will honor that fee.
  • Come to your unit.  If you want a member of our staff to come to a troop meeting (in person or virtually), we will be there to answer any of your questions.

We are putting in place a number of protocols to help mitigate the chances of an outbreak at camp.  We are working closely with Jefferson County Emergency Management to secure additional hand washing stations, sanitizer and other equipment to help temperature check all who come onto our property.  For a complete list of what were are doing, check out our recent announcement of our summer camp plans. You can also check out our Camp Jayhawk FAQ.

We know what a summer camp experience can do for a Scout's advancement and personal growth.  We are here to help your troop deliver the promises it makes to your Scouts.
