CAMP PROJECTS

What to expect…
Each work day will begin with a set of tasks that are defined in advance of your arrival to Camp Williams. Some tools will be provided but please bring whatever tools will help with the projects.

How do I sign up?
If you are planning to attend one of the scheduled work days, we encourage you to send a note to Ken Porter at ken@stxroyalrangers.com so he can discuss projects with you and make sure you’re prepared to hit the ground running.

You can also comment on our Facebook event to let us know which project you’d like to help with.

What if I cannot physically help?
We understand that it is not possible for everyone to help out the way that they may like; however, each project that gets schedule requires materials to complete. Financial donations play a very important role in our ability to schedule and complete a project. If you feel so led we would encourage you to donate monetarily to the camp using our GoFundMe or by sending a check to our P.O. box.

Whether it is your prayer, time, or financial support, we sincerely appreciate your contribution to this most worthy cause.
