Get Involved at Camp!

The Boy Scouts of America organization recruits volunteers to help with unit leadership, in being district volunteers and becoming board members.

To operate our camping programs, we count on a vast network of Scouters, community members, former staff, and other friends of our camp. Thanks to them, we are able to operate a beautiful camp property and great camp programs on it. If you would like to volunteer some time indoors or outdoors to a great organization, consider joining our camp leadership team!

Join the Project Spruce Family!

Are you looking for a way to give back to Scouting? Our Scouts deserve a fantastic camp to utilize; please help us continue the Scouting Tradition at Gamehaven Scout Camp through Project Spruce!

As a Project Spruce member, you can re-connect with your Scouting past, enjoy service opportunities at camp as your schedule permits, and get acquainted with some great volunteers.

Project Spruce meets one Saturday monthly throughout the year, generally between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., and completes various work projects at the Gamehaven Scout Camp. One of our more recent projects was re-painting the pool this summer. 

Please get in touch with Dr. Chris Arendt at or Dr. Brent Ferguson at if you are interested in helping out.
