Beaver Day: Saturday, May 14, 2011

Beaver Weekend (May 13-15, 2011) is a unique opportunity for service, fellowship, recreation, and camping! Take the opportunity to bring your unit to Camp Minsi in order to check out the camp, meet the staff, participate in some programs, and give back to Scouting through friendly service.

This event is completely free! Camp Minsi will provide your unit with a site, tents, and cots. All your unit needs to do is provide your own food and any additional equipment you feel you may need. A complimentary lunch will be provided on Saturday for all who are participating in the day's service projects. In addition to the volunteer work, Scouts will have an opportunity to take advantage of several open program areas on Saturday afternoon to meet staff and get a feel for the camp experience.

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. The staff will also be open to suggestions about what we can do to improve the campsite as a whole. If your unit decides not to make a weekend out of the event, you are invited to come up just for the day on Saturday to participate in all the fellowship events, service projects, and other festivities.

On Saturday evening there will be a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser in the Dining Hall to benefit Crew 940. Cost per plate is $7.

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.
