NEW!! Covid-19 is a challenge for everybody, even Venturing Crews. This webpage features "Covid Hikes" that can offer a way to provide outdoor adventure while managing the risk posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. What are "Covid Hikes"? Simply put, they are hikes that do not require carpooling and likely will avoid crowds. For us, this means identifying hikes that are mostly within Fairfax County, the home of Crew 128.
Under state law and BSA policy, Crew 128 strictly observes all state and local pandemic precautions. The precautions change frequently, so they must be verified for each adventure. In general terms, however, it means that everybody wears masks, remains distanced, avoids inside gatherings, avoids car pools, and affirmatively represents that they are not sick or experiencing symptoms. Further, we comply with the group size limits set by government authorities.
