July 18th – Day of Service and Founders Award Recognition

Next Saturday, July 18 – Pennacook Lodge will be holding another Summer Day of Cheerful Service at Wah-Tut-Ca Scout Reservation. Even though WTCSR is closed to scout camping this summer, there is still much to be done to preserve and improve camp. Arrowmen will be leading and participating in service projects that will have a lasting impact on camp and the experience of campers in the future. Work projects will include facility repair, carpentry, painting, conservation projects, program area upgrades, and other site work, such as final Shanawanda work and help with the brand new Manchester Family cabin at Hawk’s Point

The July 18 Day of Cheerful Service will take place between 9 am – 5 pm and the schedule will be as follows:
9:00 am – Arrival, Check-in, Work project prep
10:00am – 12:00pm – Service Projects
12:00pm – 1:00pm  – Lunch
1:00pm – 5:00pm – Service Projects

Upon arrival at camp, all Arrowmen will sign-in with the health & safety officer, affirm he/she does not have symptoms of the coronavirus and is fit to perform a day of physical work.  Lodge members will be following all COVID-19 Safety Protocols including small workgroups, social distancing, and the wearing of face masks. BSA activity permission slips will be required for all Arrowmen with those under 18 require a parent signature and those over 18 being able to sign themselves into camp. These slips will be available when you arrive at camp and can be filled out ahead of time here.
There will be no overnight camping, outdoors, or in cabins, and all participants are asked to bring their own lunch and water bottle. Individually wrapped snacks and fresh fruit and bottled water will be provided.
