- Masks must be worn inside
- Sleeping in a tent or indoors requires that you are 6 feet away social distant (Face to Face)
For everyone's health, please maintain social distancing when possible. When it's not possible to social distance from others, wear a mask. Some people will choose to continue to wear a mask and that's okay!
All Beds/Mats/Sleeping bags must be 6 feet apart at all times. All indoor sleeping must use cross ventilation including opening of all windows and doors if possible. Cabins or A Frames should have window and screen doors opened. Platform Tents should keep sides rolled up to offer a cross breeze. Same households can sleep in one unit with the usual capacity limitations. Masks can be removed when sleeping but must be worn when moving about buildings, tents, cabins & A frames.
Sleeping spaces – Sleeping outside of the platform tent!
Consider using this opportunity to think of additional overnight sleeping options. For many Girl Scouts this is an exciting opportunity.
Porches- as long as you aren’t blocking exits, stairs, or ramp, use the covered porches as sleeping areas.
Tents – Put small tents in and among the established platform tents/cabins or create a field unit on a flag or play field (be sure to pick up all your stakes). Keep in mind that you’ll want to be near a porto or sharable bathroom.
Ask families in your Service unit or troop if they have a tent to be borrowed. Even if it is an older tent, a tarp can be placed over it, to make it rain-ready.
Places like REI rent camping equipment, including tents.
Tarps – Run a line between trees and place a tarp over it. Stake out the tarp to secure your sides, creating a “tarp tent”
Screen house or shade tent with sides – place an old tent underneath or set up your sleeping area underneath the pop-up. Remember to stake out your shelter.
Hammocks – be sure to be kind to the trees as you securely attach your hammock. Create a sleeping space that is cozy and off the ground. In our camping units, there are usually trees on the edge that will accommodate this.
Empty Tent Platforms – Use this flat space to put up a few one or two-person tents. In case of wind, be sure to weight your tent down with gear or lash it down.
Sleep under the Stars – Head for the field with a sleeping pad or yoga mat and sleeping bag.
