What’s BSA CAMP? (Formerly MAC CAMP). Our organization began in 1978 by a group of retired Scouters. The purpose of the organization is “the development and maintenance of the Scout camps and the recreational facilities in the Milwaukee Council Boy Scouts of America. Volunteers are needed! By volunteering a piece of your time you will be contributing to the camps upkeep, attractiveness and significantly reducing the costs which would have to be passed back to the Council and Scouters like you.
Skills at any level can be useful and general labor is welcome. If you have some carpentry, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, welding, landscaping, other skills we could use them; or just offering a helping hand would be appreciated. Some of us are learning as we go. We work as a team and it is definitely a rewarding experience. Over the last two years alone over 4000 hours of work time have been contributed by BSA CAMP.
Here are just a few examples of what we have done recently: cut brush and trees, retire old flags, remodeled the Trading Post, remodeled the Reservation Office, and constructed a road to better access Explorer Cabin. We have fabricated wood storage boxes for each cabin, completed several plumbing and electrical repairs, built walled in areas to store firearms, chemicals and for general storage; we fabricated and painted new camp signage for information and fire safety, installed new support beams and floor bracing at the Fun lodge and the list goes on. In addition many of our volunteers have assisted with other BSA activities, fundraisers and projects. Whether you are handy or simply want to lend a helping hand we can use your help. You do not necessarily have to be retired. As an associate member you can help as time permits. Please contact Fred Witty Membership 262-547-4685 or Roger Wilde President 262-782-5486 for further information. Hope to hear from you.
