Beaver Day '09 Project List

Beaver Day is fast approaching! This event (May 16, 2009) is a special opportunity for Scouts, Scouters and volunteers to come to Camp Minsi and participate in service projects to help prepare the camp for another busy season of summer camp.

Be prepared! Below is a list of many of the projects currently planned for Beaver Day. Dress appropriately for the jobs – you may end up working in the dirt, clearing brush, or painting. If you have any special skills, tools, interests or expertise that could help with any of these projects, please be sure to bring them and let us know.

Lunch on Saturday will be provided (free of charge) to all Beaver Day participants; and in the afternoon you will have an opportunity to explore camp and participate in special open programs. We also hope that you plan on joining us for our annual spaghetti dinner in the Camp Minsi dining hall.

For more information on any of the Beaver Day projects, please feel free to contact us (email or phone 570.839.9108). Hope to see you there!
