What's going on at Lassen?

 

As many of you may have heard, on Sunday July 18 Golden Empire suspended operations at Camp Lassen out of concern regarding Camp Lassen’s proximity to the nearby Dixie Fire.  Camp Lassen was closed and all campers and staff sent home after dinner that evening.  We have been monitoring the Dixie Fire’s progress since it started on the 14th and have stayed in communication with CalFire throughout.  According to CalFIre, though the fire is close, it is unlikely that the fire will affect Camp Lassen. However, the Golden Empire Council takes the wellbeing of our Scouts as the highest priority and doesn't want to take any unnecessary risks, especially when safety is involved. 

 

The Dixie Fire

 

For more information on the Dixie Fire you can visit the CalFire website at: https://www.fire.ca.gov/incidents/2021/7/14/dixie-fire/

 

What if we were signed up for camp this week?

 

Unfortunately, due to local evacuation warnings we are unable to hold our final session of Cub Resident Camp.  The Golden Empire Council’s Camping Department is working diligently to reschedule and offer another Cub Resident Camp session at camp Lassen as soon as safely possible.  It is our hope that packs will be able to attend the new session and that every Cub Scouts gets to have a Camp adventure!   

 

What can we do?

 

We know that as Scouters our first impulse is to help.  However, at this time we ask that you stay away from the area until the danger has passed. If ways to help become available, we'll let you know as soon as they do. For right now, we just ask that you keep those affected by the fires around the state, as well as our beautiful camp and all the emergency responders involved, in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for your support.
