Volunteers are needed to come out to camp on April 13 to join in helping with projects that will prepare camp for the summer camping season. All you need to bring is yourself, work clothes, and a cheerful spirit to spend a day or two serving camp. Any additional tools to help with projects are also welcome.

Beaver Day is a chance for all Scouts, Leader, and Volunteers to come to Camp Decorah to assist in the maintenance of our great camp. We have many projects that need our attention, and we need your expertise in tackling those projects.

This a great a experience for everyone to work together to keep our camp the best it can possibly be. In the past few years, many improvements have been completed, some improvements are near completion, and some are still in the planning stage. This is your camp, please help with maintenance.

Anyone and everyone is welcome; any youth that attend are asked to attend with a parent or unit leader. RSVP’s are highly encouraged to ensure that we have enough food for lunch. RSVP by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
