Camp Minsi Beaver Weekend
May 19-21, 2017
Camp Minsi’s annual Beaver Weekend is a great opportunity for service, fellowship, and outdoor fun! Take the opportunity to bring your unit to Camp Minsi for a weekend camping trip to check out the camp and its facilities, meet the staff, participate in open programs, and give back to Scouting through friendly service. This event is completely free!
We will provide your unit with a site, tents, and cots. You can even request to stay in the site you will be staying in during your week of summer camp. Lunch on Saturday will be provided for all who are participating in the weekend. All that we ask in return is that your unit gives a few hours of service to the camp on Saturday. Additionally, Scouts and leaders will have the opportunity to take advantage of several open programs on Saturday afternoon along with a chance to explore the camp, meet the staff and participate in many fun activities.
If your unit decides not to make a full weekend out of the event, you're invited to come up just for the day on Saturday to participate in all the fellowship events, service projects, and other festivities.
The summer camp directors will hold a brief informational leader's meeting on Saturday afternoon immediately following lunch. This meeting allows the camp staff to answer any questions leaders may have about the summer camp programs and share information to help them be better prepared for their week at summer camp.
On Saturday evening there will be a Pizza Buffet dinner fundraiser held in the dining hall to benefit Venturing Crew 940, a group that provides service and leadership to Camp Minsi. Cost is $7 per person. The buffet will include a variety of fresh-made pizzas along with a pasta and salad bar.
If you have any questions, or want more information, please contact the Camp Minsi camp director, Lisa Empfield, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
