May 16 Update: The Longhorn Council has made the difficult decision to NOT operate our summer RESIDENT camps and high adventure camps this summer at Camp Tahuaya, Worth Ranch, and Sid Richardson Scout Ranch.  This decision was made after a lengthy and difficult process of information gathering and discussion, with the main concern being for the safety of our Scouts, leaders and camp staff. Units may receive full credit for a future camp reservation, or transfer the fees to another camp or program, or request a full refund. Click here for the message from Scout Executive John Coyle regarding closure of 2020 summer resident camps.

We will continue to update as necessary our event, camp, and training calendars and our recommendations to units as we receive new guidance from our public health leaders. We will reopen unit camping reservations as soon as it is possible so that units to camping again and do their own programs. Some individual programs and equipment will be available for individual units camping on their own at Longhorn Council camps this summer.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  1. Your scout is NOT enrolled in a class until you check out.  If you  have a large number of Scouts, you may want to check out in between entries to ensure you do not lose information.
  2. BSA SCUBA INFORMATION:

While the youth will have the opportunity to dive underwater in the camp’s pool, this class is NOT a PADI certification program because youth will not participate in an open water dive.

In order to participate in the Scuba program, parents and youth must read the Youth Diving Flip Chart and complete the following forms. Please note the Red box outlined on the BSA Medical (part C) which needs to be indicated by your doctor in order to participate in Scuba.
