Beaver Weekend: May 7-9, 2010

Beaver weekend at Camp Minsi (May 7-9, 2010) is a unique opportunity for service, fellowship, recreation, and camping! Take the opportunity to bring your unit to check out Camp Minsi and its facilities, meet the staff, participate in some programs, and give back to Scouting through friendly service.

This event is completely free! The camp will provide your unit with a site, tents, and cots. A complimentary lunch on Saturday will be provided by Venturing Crew 940 for all who are participating in the weekend. All we ask is that you give a few hours of service to the camp on Saturday morning. In return, Scouts and leaders will have the opportunity to take advantage of several open program areas on Saturday afternoon run by summer camp staff.

If preferred, your unit can come up and actually camp in the site that you will be staying in for your week at summer camp; and you’re free to make any improvements and preparations to your site. You can help improve your site, or participate in one of the other service projects happening around camp to prepare for the 2010 camping season.

If your unit decides not to make a weekend out of it, you are invited to come up for the day on Saturday to participate in some of the fellowship events, service projects, and other festivities, including a special campfire on Saturday night.

If interested, please register your unit before April 9th by contacting the council office (610-465-8568 or Jane.Chase@scouting.org). More information, including a list of the service projects, will be made available at campminsi.org closer to the event.
