For years, one of our mottos at camp – come rain or soaring temperatures or fires that won’t start or any of the other little mishaps that can happen while playing in the out of doors – is “camp happens.”
The COVID-19 pandemic and mandated social distancing threw a bit of a wrench in our final Task Group meeting, but we made the leap into the 21st century and gathered by Zoom to continue our discussion of emergency procedures, discuss camp numbers, and vote on the designs for for this year’s patches and t-shirts.
We had quite the full house!
Ashgrove’s Task Group meets monthly from September through March to vote on and discuss a wide variety of camp-related administrative issues. Any adult volunteer is welcome to join us on the third Thursdays of the month 6:30-9pm (well, the first half hour is socializing, so call it 7-9pm if you’re in a time crunch).
This past meeting, we had some knotty fun, reviewed registration numbers, discussed publicity, and evaluated our existing emergency procedures with an eye towards condensing 11 pages (!!) of information into something more streamlined and easy to consult. Those who showed up early also got to consult on a new Camp Crowell specific badge that GSCNC is putting together – collect all the camps! But I’m pretty sure, attempting to unknot ourselves took longer than all the other activities combined.
