This checklist outlines several minimum guiding protocols that adult leaders/ volunteers must consider while working with local and state health departments, local councils, chartered organizations and Scouting families on when and how to resume meetings, service projects, camping and all other official Scouting activities.

We know everyone is ready to get outdoors and participate in Scouting activities. We want to see you at camp or an activity as badly as you want to attend  Due to an overabundance of caution and concern for the welfare of participants and staff, the Coronado Area Council is asking all Scouts, Leaders, Parents, and siblings who are participating in a council or district event on council property, office or not, please fill out the Same Day Medical and Legal Document. A Scout is Friendly, Courteous, and Kind which means if you are feeling ill please stay home! Your cooperation is appreciated.

CAC is excited to announce our alternative plans for this summer!

The Coronado Area Council will be hosting a virtual camporee June 18th-20th, 2020.
