Beaver Day 2010 - Saturday, May 8th

Beaver Day is fast approaching! This event (May 8, 2010) is a special opportunity for Scouts, Scouters and volunteers to come to Camp Minsi and participate in service projects essential to preparing the camp for another busy season of summer camp.

We hope that you are able to join us for a fun-filled weekend of service, fellowship, recreation, camping, and fun! Bring your troop, your patrol, your friends, or your family. Beaver weekend is a great oppertunity to get out, explore camp, and give back.

Be prepared! Below is a list of some of the projects currently planned for Beaver Day. Dress appropriately for the jobs and the weather. 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 a delicious meal and great Scout fellowship.
