CAMP CLEAN UP
Come for the day, camp for the weekend, make a difference for life!
Only through continued service can we ensure that the beautiful and natural areas of the Dan Beard Scout Reservation are preserved for future youth. Camp Cleanup Days are an great way for boys to earn service hours while working to conserve our camp properties. These days of organized projects include tree-planting, erosion control, honeysuckle removal, trail maintenance, and other conservation projects. Groups that participate learn about lake ecosystems and help create a healthy environment for the plants and animals that share our camps. This event promotes a sense of ownership in our camps for all those who participate.
Scouts can earn service hours for rank advancement, school requirements, award requirements, and more!
