Boy Scouts of America - Guilford Courthouse Historic Trail Award
The Guilford Courthouse Historic Trail Award (GCHT) is an official program sponsored by the Old North State Council, Boy Scouts of America (BSA) of Greensboro, North Carolina in cooperation with the National Park Service. Upon completion of the requirements of the Award, the scout is entitled to receive a colorful, embroidered patch and ribbon with pendant medal. This BSA Program was established following the bicentennial observance of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in 1981.
Staying Safe in Parks and Recreating Responsibly
As the National Park Service monitors and responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making. Make sure you’re ready for your visit by checking your local news and the park website to keep current on new and evolving guidelines. Public health measures are in place across the National Park System including capacity limits, and temporary closures in response to local conditions. While most of the 423 national parks are available to visitors, some may not have the ability to offer the level of service available before the pandemic. Check with individual park websites or download the NPS App for specific details about their operations.
2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Consistent with CDC recommendations, people who are not fully vaccinated (less than two weeks past your final dose) must continue to wear masks indoors and in crowded outdoor spaces. All people, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask on all forms of enclosed public transportation and in healthcare settings on DOI lands. Additional mask requirements for fully vaccinated visitors vary by park based on local conditions.
For the health and safety of others, please choose another time to visit a park if:
· You are experiencing COVID-like symptoms such as a dry cough, fever, difficulty breathing, and/or loss of taste or smell.
· You had close contact with someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
· You are self-isolating or self-quarantining because you may have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 or are worried that you may be sick with COVID-19.
Whether seeking wide-open spaces or exploring a historic urban neighborhood, visitors should follow current CDC guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and recreate responsibly.
Please give the park at least 48 hours notice of the arrival of your scout group by calling the park rangers at (336) 288 - 1776 ext. 232. If we cannot pick up, please leave a voicemail with your name, number, and date of arrival so that we may call you back to confirm.
