    Because some people in charge are stupid
    And don’t think it will affect them or those they care for.
    They think it only affects “others” or “them”
    The “it won’t happen to me” mindset.

    I see it happen again and again
    Many won’t stop.

    Our daughters sleepover camps were all cancelled.
    Friends of ours were able to send their 2 daughters and it has been fine for them.
    The key: It's an 8 week sleepover.
    They tested everyone pre-arrival, and on arrival.
    Then locked everyone in , including counselors, for the 8 weeks. Nobody can enter or exit.
    They put them in small pods of 10 for the first 2 weeks so if any cases arose they would be contained. Masks and distancing were mandatory.
    Once they cleared the 2 week mark they let them all intermix, and have a normal camp experience.
    So far, so good.

    That might be the way to do it, but that is difficult to do for 8 weeks I would think.

    It is.
    Our daughters were 2 and 4 week blocks.
    With rotating groups like that, I don't think here was any way for it to work this summer.
    Having a single group that remains isolated for 8 weeks was the only way it was happening.

    I am a scout leader in Oz. We are only just in the last few weeks back to face to face meetings, and while overnight activities are allowed, it is basically one person per tent, which actually makes it impractical for us to do camps. There are rules about coming if you are feeling ill, using hand sanitiser, restricted numbers for in hall meetings etc. While our state case numbers are relatively low, scouts are much more likely to err on the side of cancelling face to face rather than the bad publicity of being a "hot spot". If our cases spike, they are likely to pull the pin rather than allowing us to continue meeting.

    Followup...


    I know it takes a year to fully heal from a big health issue
    I usually think of an injury or surgery
    But a serious illness could be a factor too

    I wonder if anyone who had cancer or other serious matter say it lingers for a year until 100%

    I guess we’ll have to return from a year from now and see
