Check-in will begin promptly at 8:30am and gates will close at 8:55am.  Late entries and re-entries will not be permitted. 

Our safety protocols will closely mirror the guidance from state and local officials, up to and including temperature screening at check-in and a safety acknowledgment signed by each training attendee. GSSJC is incredibly grateful for the support of our volunteers.  Given state protocols and CDC information, GSSJC encourages individuals who may be more susceptible or at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 (including individuals age 65 and older or those with serious underlying health conditions), to carefully consider and weigh all risks in deciding whether participating through in-person meetings at this time is appropriate. 

Bring:  Adult Emergency Form, snacks, drinks, pencil, paper and wear weather appropriate clothing, including closed-toed shoes and socks that cover the ankle. DO NOT BRING ANY FIREARMS WITH YOU TO CAMP.
