Camp Gerber Family Dinner - RSVP JUNE 3rd

Camp Gerber Family Dinner
Wednesday, June 22nd @ 5:30pm

RSVP for the Camp Gerber dinner by Friday, June 3. Cost is $5 with attendees requested to bring a dessert to pass.

If you are going to the dinner, you absolutely must RSVP by June 3rd!

For more information, see the emailed newsletter.

Family night is a BIG DEAL for our boys at camp. They enjoy seeing their parents. Parents may plan to arrive around 5:30, checking in at the camp office. Dinner will be served at 6pm, with Scouts leaving for evening scout festivities at 7pm.

NOTE: Parents are welcome to attend the festivities, but they will NOT be able to have contact with scouts after they depart for the festivities.


We are still missing tents from before the May Hike. If you think you may have a tent, PLEASE take a moment to see if a tent inadvertently came back to you. For more information, see the emailed newsletter.

Community Service Opportunities

Spring Lake Wooden Boat Show on June 4th at Keenan Marina

We still need 2 volunteers from 8am-noon and 2 volunteers from 11:30-3:30 pm.

For more information, see the emailed newsletter.

Windsor McCay Day on June 14th at the Spring Lake District Library

The scouts will be helping out with carnival-style games and handing out prizes to the kids from 9:45am-12:00pm.

For more information, see the emailed newsletter.

Not only is community service required for advancement, it is good for both the volunteer and the community!

Volunteer Opportunity (Eagle Project)

Help is needed for June 14th and 15th from 5:30 - 8:00  at 15080 Hickory Street, Spring Lake (between 148th and Fruitport Rd).

We will be cutting and pre-assembling shelving units for the Theatre Department. We need 4-6 scouts per night.

Please bring gloves and safety glasses, but we will have some there if you don't have any available.

Help is also needed on June 27th at the Spring Lake High School stage from 5:30 - 8:30.

We will be moving the theatre dept. props., constructing shelving units, painting, and putting back the props on the new shelves. We plan to work three nights on this project and could use 8-12 people per night. Wear old clothes, work gloves, safety glasses.

For more information, see the emailed newsletter.

Looking for Donation: A Camper or Fifth Wheel

WYLD/Haunted Hall is looking for a camper or a fifth-wheel as a portable sound/equipment room for Haunted Hall. This is a really good donation/tax write-off opportunity: as we plan on using the vehicle, you can write off a higher value than if you were normally donating it.

For more information, see the emailed newsletter.

Family Camp Out

Just like last year, parents and scouts will be up at Camp Owassippee on August 19th-21th. Camping will be $15.00 per person and it is only tent camping. If you have any questions, see the newsletter.
