Gamehaven Furlough

Hello Scout Families, leaders and volunteers,

 

For the past three weeks we have been sending emails to our Scout families and volunteers preparing you all for the Furlough we are taking. Furlough is starting  Monday, June 29th for the entire Gamehaven Staff. We are expected to be back in the office on Monday, August 3rd. Until that time we have put together information for contacting volunteers who have committed to taking care of certain things while we are out. However, there will be things that will have to wait until we get back to the office. When we do get back we will be working quickly to get things set up for another Scouting season. 

Thank you

Gamehaven Staff

  • INCIDENT REPORTING 

COVID-19 Exposure: Please utilize Incident Reporting COVID-19Supplemental Instructions 

 

Near Miss: This is for programs like Cope and Climbing Activities, Aquatic Activities, etc. in which something went wrong (equipment failed, like a carabiner breaking or a roping coming apart or sail on a boat failing), but there was no injury, illness or damage by definition but that had the potential to have done so.  

Process for Reporting 

 

Less-Serious Medical Treatment: Less-serious medical incidents are those occurring in connection with Scouting activities, including travel to or from the activity, requiring medical treatment beyond Scout-given first aid (any trip to a Doctor, ER or Urgent Care for injury or illness). Any incident where an Accident or Sickness Claim (e.g. HSR) can be filed fits into this category. 

Process for Reporting  

 

Serious Incident: Serious incidents occurring in connection with Scouting activities, including travel to or from the activity. Serious incidents include, but may not be limited to: Sexual or physical abuse (after ensuring the victim is cared for and reporting to law enforcement), fatalities, potentially life-threatening injuries (e.g., any amputation, brain injury, loss of sight, paralysis, etc.) or requiring air-ambulance transportation, accidents resulting in the hospitalization of three or more people, communicable disease outbreaks (e.g., measles, norovirus, etc.), mass casualties (10 or more people who are injured or sick at a Scouting activity), explosions or events resulting in significant damage to property and any incidents where media attention is anticipated.
