Welcome to Great Trail Council's camp and facility rental system for the Manatoc Scout Reservation and Camp Stambaugh!...


Please select a camp from the "GTC Camps" tab above to begin.

Looking for a unit meeting space at camp, please select "GTC Camps" then "Unit Meeting Areas (All Camps)" above for availability.

Most facilities (buildings) are limited to 10 people indoors. There is also a maximum of 10 people outside of the building in a separate campsite. If your group size is larger than the adjusted building size plus 10 you will need multiple campsites. 

 

Please review the current GTC COVID-19 camping policies as of 8-20-2020

To provide liability and accident insurance coverage to all our units who choose to camp this year, only Boy Scouts of America resident camping properties in the state of Ohio are approved for Great Trail Council members’ use. This means Camp Butler, Manatoc, or Stambaugh of the Great Trail Council, and any BSA Resident Camp Property operated by an Ohio BSA Council are approved under this plan. This includes all Council, District, and Unit camping programs. Our first priority is to keep our Scouts and families safe while allowing them to put the “outing” in Scouting. We believe this will be best achieved due to the strict regulations required by Ohio Department of Health for Resident Camp properties and also the National Camp Accreditation Program through the National BSA Council, it is because of these reasons that we are only allowing camping at certified BSA Resident Camp Properties.


Additionally, the following procedures must be followed at all times:

General Camping Updates

- When traveling to and from activities, it is recommended not to car-pool, and all individual families should drive themselves to and from programs. 
- Temperatures must be taken and documented prior to departure for any program and should be taken daily during any programs. 
    o Prior to arriving at camp, all participants must complete and bring with them the Covid-19 Questionnaire form with parent signature (for those under 18 years old) and receive a temperature check upon arrival at any GTC property. This temperature check will be completed by the unit leader upon arrival at any GTC property, with assistance from Campmasters if needed. This temperature check will be documented at the bottom of the Covid-19 Questionnaire.
    o We understand there may be a need for a Scout or leader to leave at some point during the trip with plans to return. If this is to happen, the participant’s temperature must be taken again upon return to camp.
    o If a temperature screening is 100 degrees or more, you should not attend any Scouting function. 
    o If the temperature of an individual rises to the 100-degree threshold during an event, they will need to leave the event.
- Masks or Face Coverings should be worn by all leaders and Scouts during any camping programs.
- Proper Social Distancing should be practiced by all those at events. A 6-foot distance should always be maintained, unless it is physically impossible, such as when preparing meals. 
- Proper sanitizing measures (hand sanitizer, surface cleaner, soap, and water) and handwashing should happen at regular intervals throughout the event.
- Scouts and Adults should be limited to one person per tent unless they are immediate family members.
- Group Sizes may not exceed 10 individuals.
    o Multiple groups of 10 may participate in the same activity, but the groups of 10 should not intermingle youth or adults in between groups.
    o For example, if a Troop of 24 Scouts plan to camp, 6 adult leaders would be required, and the group would need to maintain 3 separate groups each with their own camp site, programs, and meal preparation.
- All Youth Protection Policies and Guide to Safe Scouting Policies must be followed.
- All programs and outings should be less than 72 hours in length

Cabin Camping Updates:

o Cabins at the Great Trail Council Properties will begin to open for rental following Labor Day. Our cabins have sat dormant since February, and we need help getting them ready for Fall and Winter programs. If you or your unit are interesting in “adopting” a cabin to help get it cleaned up for Fall and Winter camping, please contact our Director of Camping at: Nathan.Watson@scouting.org to set up a time to come out to camp.
o Groups sizes in cabins are limited to a maximum of 10 participants, unless a smaller number is otherwise posted. 
    * For example: Buena Vista Cabin at Camp Manatoc has 16 beds, but due to Social Distancing requirements, we are only able to have 8 campers inside the cabin. 
    * For Example: Atwater Lodge at Camp Butler has 52 beds in it, but due to Social Distancing requirements, each large bunk room can only accommodate 10 campers, and the small bunk rooms can only accommodate 4 campers, for a total of 28 campers in the cabin. (Cabins that can accommodate more than 10 campers must be able to be separated by a barrier and mixing of these separate groups should not occur.)
    * If your group size is larger than what your cabin can accommodate, you are permitted to set up ONE “over-flow” tent camping outside of your cabin for a maximum of 10 campers, the same rules listed above apply for mixing groups.
o Sleeping arrangements in the cabins:
    * Each cabin will have bunks marked off with caution tape to prevent campers from violating Social Distancing guidelines. 
    * Each bunk that is appropriate to sleep on will have tape or a sign designating where the camper’s head should be to ensure proper Social Distancing between campers.
o Each group will be responsible for sanitizing common use areas at least three times per day. A bottle of sanitizer spray will be provided at check-in. Please return it to the Campmasters at check-out. 

Council Shooting Sports Updates:

Our shooting sports ranges will be open this camping season like in years past. Due to Covid-19 the following guidelines must be followed. Check out of materials will remain the same.
    - Archery Ranges:
        o Prior to and immediately after shooting, all Scouts must wash and sanitize hands.
        o All Scouts must wear a mask, finger guard, and wrist guard while shooting the bow and arrow. 
        o All Scouts are only permitted to retrieve the arrows fired from their specific bow. Retrieving others’ arrows will not be permitted.
        o All Scouts on range must be at least 6 feet away from each other.
        o The Range Officer or their designee must sanitize all bows, arrows, bowstrings, wrist guards, and finger guards before allowing another Scout to use them. All items must be sanitized before leaving the range. Materials to clean and sanitize will be provided. 
            * Failure to complete these steps may result in your Range Officer Training being revoked and the range being closed by Council Shooting Sports Committee members or their designees. No refunds will be offered.
    - BB Gun Ranges:
        o Prior to and immediately after shooting, all Scouts must wash and sanitize hands.
        o Anyone on the range must wear the proper safety protection. 
        o All Scouts on range must be at least 6 feet away from each other.
        o The Range Officer or their designee must wipe down with sanitizing solution all BB Guns and BB trays, spray sanitize all benches, resting blocks, and commonly touched areas, and dip sanitize all safety glasses before another individual can utilize them. All items must be sanitized before leaving the range. Materials to clean and sanitize will be provided.
            * Failure to complete these steps may result in your Range Officer Training being revoked and the range being closed by Council Shooting Sports Committee members or their designees. No refunds will be offered.
