2020 Raymond Adventure Fest Scout Camp **CANCELLED**
Raymond Adventure Fest
Tuesday, July 28th – Sunday, August 2nd
Raymond Adventure Fest is a six-night Adventure Camp located at Camp Raymond in Parks,
Arizona. Unlike traditional summer camp, youth and adults registered in either Scouts BSA,
Venturing or Sea Scouts get to participate in all activities. In order to maintain social distancing
guidelines this camp will limit the number of participants to 180 with no exceptions.
In an effort to mitigate the potential spread of illness and maintain safety standards,
participants will camp by patrols (groups of 10) in campsites and participate as patrols during
meals and scheduled program. Units registering more that 10 participants will have to form
more than one patrol. See the leader guide for more information.
Program highlights for youth and adults will include and is not limited to; Shooting Sports (8
events), Aquatics (2 events), STEM (2 events), Mountain Biking, Climbing and Repelling,
Geocaching, Hiking and so much more. In addition to the mentioned program, we will offer ATV
certification opportunities for an additional program fee of $50.00 per person. The minimum
age to register for the ATV program is 14 years old.

you in the cool Flagstaff weather with fellow Scouts and Scouters at the first ever Raymond

Answers to a few common questions:
Does this signify anything for Camp Geronimo?
- No. Camp Geronimo is still running four sessions during June and July. Raymond Adventure Fest is separate and different program experience
Why is this being announced with short notice?
- An opportunity became available and a couple of volunteer Scouters decided to seize it and plan a great week of activities, fellowship and adventure to end the summer!
Who can attend?
- Any Scout or Scouter currently registered in Scouts BSA, Venturing and Sea Scouts may attend.
- Youth must have unit leadership attending with them (camp is over 72 hours). Scouts cannot attend on their own.
- Scouters must have current Youth Protection Training.
- Female Scouts and Scouters will camp and participate as patrols as mentioned above and will have a designated shower and bathroom facilities.
Are there any additional program opportunities?
- ATV license and certification will require an additional program fee of $50.00 . This fee covers license/certification, gas and equipment. The minimum age required to participate is 14 years old.
- We need a minimum of 8 participants (max 24) to hold the ATV program. Registration will close for the ATV program one week prior to the start of camp. At that time if we do not have the 8 participants required to run the class, the program will be canceled and refunds issued.
Are tents provided?
- No. Participants must bring their own tents. At this time BSA guidelines recommend one tent per participant to minimize exposure by social distancing . The only exception to this guideline is for family members.

If you have a specific need, please notify us in your registration so we can do our best to meet you needs. You may also bring alternative meals or snacks to supplement any items we provide that you may not be able to consume.
What about Covid-19?
- As we have grown accustomed to, information concerning Covid-19 is continuously changing so please pay attention to updates we share.
- We will follow safety standards put in place by Camp Geronimo’s 2020 summer sessions and will be keeping track of the latest recommendations by officials. We expect each participant to behave appropriately.
