Pathfinder Leaders & Staff
The medical team is excited to be a part of another Union Camporee for our youth. We look forward to being of service to you and your Pathfinders. October 2021 is quickly approaching, and I am sure that you are diligently working to get everything ready for a successful experience. Your medical team has a few requests and expectations to ensure that we can provide optimum service to you and your Pathfinders and to work toward keeping everyone healthy and safe.
Please read these guidelines carefully and work with your individual Pathfinders and staff and share this information with them. Please provide the appropriate instructions and education needed to make this Camporee as safe as possible. The medical building will be staffed with teams of doctors, nurses, and paramedics/EMTs 24/7 on call on physical present. The medical team will be on golf carts roaming the grounds throughout the day and until after the evening program and activities are completed and everyone is settled in for the night.

Be on the lookout for symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell. Call your doctor if you think you or a family member is sick.
