Looking for a great place to work on your Eagle Project? Would your Pack or Den like to hold a Pinewood Derby clinic? Would you like to add a service project to a weekend camping event? Camp William B. Snyder is pleased to announce the opening of its new wood shop. The wood shop is fully outfitted and with approximately 1200 square feet of floor space and 150 sq. ft. of work benches, there is ample space to handle projects of all sizes.
We are very excited to have this facility up and running. We are expecting to be able to offer new events and merit badge opportunities throughout the year and to offer expanded program activities for our summer camps. In addition, the space will be available for Scout, Unit or District events and service projects. We have created a photo gallery for the wood shop which shows the space, tools available and the many safety features of the shop. It will be available shortly on our website.
An official grand opening and open house will be held during the Scout Expo at Camp Snyder on November 17, 2018. Demonstrations will be scheduled throughout the day and our volunteer Shop Stewards will be on hand to answer questions about the facility.
This has been another great example of how volunteers have added tremendous value to Camp Snyder. From the initial planning and throughout the construction, this project has been completed with 100% volunteer labor. We would like to thank all the volunteers who have contributed their time, tools and equipment to the construction and outfitting of the shop. We would like to specifically recognize Dave Schneeman, CJ Staton and Mell Cunningham for their countless hours of effort in planning and construction of the shop and Dick Meyers, Mitch Lynch and Pack 1860 for their generous donations of equipment and tools. In addition, we would like thank Cole Howell who arranged for the donation of all of the electrical supplies needed for the project as well as for his time in making all of the final electrical connections.
We will be continuously seeking to improve the offering and capabilities of the shop. If you would like to purchase a tool or supplies for the shop or if you have tools, supplies or equipment that you would like to donate, a list of needed items is posted on the website. We are also looking for experienced woodworkers to serve as Shop Stewards to help maintain & operate the shop. If you have tools or equipment to donate, or if you are interested in volunteering as a Shop Steward, please email Dave Schneeman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you at our open house on November 17. If you have questions or would like to visit the shop, please contact Phil Barbash at Philip.Barbash@Scouting.Org.
