Work Weekend: Each camp holds a work weekend during which volunteers get together to complete needed projects over one day or one weekend.  A list of weekends and contact information for other properties can be found on the Work Weekend page. 

Adopt-A-Project: Camp rangers keep lists of projects that a group, from Cub Scout packs to Boy Scout troops, or even families, Rotary or other service clubs, can 'adopt' based on their skill level and resources.  A sample list of projects can be found on the Adopt-A-Project page, along with contact information for camp rangers so you can find a project suitable for your group.

Camp Host Program: Many camps have Camp Hosts most weekends to help visiting campers maximize their camping experience.  Become a Camp Host to help packs and troops have great weekend camping trips.
