Scouts BSA Programs

BSA Health Forms

We understand that physical exams may be difficult to obtain in some parts of the country because of COVID-19. We also realize that this may present a hardship for some participants that typically schedule their physical exams prior to the camping season. In light of COVID-19, the following guidance is being provided and will be in effect until August 31, 2020. The following one-time exceptions will only apply to BSA Accredited Council Camps and BSA High Adventure Bases. Click here to read more about this year's BSA Health Form directives.

2020 Virtual Programs

Greetings from CyberSwamp!

Thank you for choosing Camp Berry & Camp Lakota, both operated by the Black Swamp Area Council for your 2020 virtual summer camping experience we are affectionately calling “CyberSwamp”. We offer this Leader/Participant Guide to help everyone get just as excited and ready for camp as we are!

All Scouts must complete the “BSA Cyber Chip” for their Grade level prior to their week of camp, and all BSA Online Youth Protection policies will be strictly adhered to. The Black Swamp Area Council takes the safety and security of everyone seriously and will do everything possible to provide a positive online learning environment.

It is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to experience this "virtual" Camp in the outdoors as much as possible.  If your local regulations allow and you can do so safely, we want everyone to CAMP outside the entire week.  Get out and  camp in your back yard...or however you can… just GET OUTDOORS!

2020 Mini Sessions

Mini-Sessions are a 3-day, 2-night program, and will be offered at both Berry & Lakota.  In this format, all participants will stay within their own “circle” and travel together throughout their time on camp.  All the Scouts AND adults will participate in a round robin program schedule.  Plenty of time will be set aside throughout the daily schedule for sanitation of program areas and equipment between uses.  Scouts will also be required to wash hands, and follow social distancing protocols outside of their circle.

Weekend Camping

Three-fourths of the word 'Scouting' is 'Outing'. Scouts can practice their skills while having a great time outdoors at Camp Berry or Camp Lakota. Weekend camping is available for in-council and out-of-council Packs, Troops, and Crews.
