FAQ
What is your refund policy for COVID?
  • If we have to cancel your reservation due to COVID, or other complications, we will provide a 100% refund. (Note, this is if the Council needs to cancel program due to COVID.)
  • Individual Refunds – If a positive test in household AND PCR test (must be lab based test, not home test) result received from family: 85% refund. If positive test in household and an at home test is used: 50% refund. (Please take a picture of the at home test.)
Are pets allowed?
  • Unfortunately no. As much as we would love to see your furry friends at camp, they are too disruptive to the natural environment and should stay at home when you visit.
Is alcohol allowed?
  • No. As this is a campground primarily geared for families involved in Scouting, we do not allow alcohol.
Is smoking allowed?
  • No. As this is a campground primarily geared for families involved in Scouting, we do not allow smoking.
Can I drive into the campsites?
  • Not at this time, but there are several parking lots within walking distance. If you need special assistance with carrying gear to your campsite, please let us know.
Is there a map available?
  • Yes! You can view it HERE. Due to COVID-19, we will not have any available at camp, and you are encouraged to print out the one liked on this page for your reference. Please note that our newly expanded sites are not listed on this map, but will be added to our new map that is being updated with our new cabins.
Are fires allowed in camp?
  • It depends on the current conditions and allowances made by Cal Fire. You can check on conditions and see if you are allowed to have a fire HERE (Search for Long Barn, CA on the map)
  • Please remember that if fires are allowed during your visit, to only have flames no higher than 2 feet and only in the concrete/metal rings we have provided.
  • Also, HERE are some tips on leaving no trace when setting up a campfire.
Are there wild animals around?
  • Yes! The Sierra Nevada Mountains are full of life from fish to birds, and even some mountain lions and bears. For this reason, we ask that you store your food in an animal-proof container away from where you sleep. Your car is also another good option. We also ask that you throw away your trash each night before bed, otherwise, you will have some unwanted visitors!
Can we help with a service project?
  • Definitely! You are welcome and encouraged to help with a service project that you feel comfortable with. We also host regular work weekends, where we work on camp improvements. Please contact the Camping department, for more details or ask any of the commissioner staff during summer camp.

Are masks required on-site and when?
  • Effective March 1, 2022, there is a strong recommendation that all persons, regardless of vaccination status, continue to mask while in indoor public settings and businesses.
Can we use restrooms other than the one assigned to us?
  • Unfortunately not during the pandemic. To ensure we have good contact tracing, and to limit as much contact as possible, we have had to restrict each campsite to their own restroom. If you have a disability that requires the use of specific restrooms on-site, please let us know and we will make sure you are accommodated appropriately.
