Wow, there are a lot of ideas that come to mind. What does the camp need? Shelving, closets, kitchen cabinets? A log bridge over a small creek? Community projects like this are great, especially if they can help the camp and leave the troops mark for future scouts to see. What our boys liked the most was building and racing their own snow snakes and a dogsled that they entered in the Klondike Derby. Something else might be a shadow box for them to display their own badges, etc. I might also suggest cutting and carving a 2 piece hiking staff, which could help them to earn both the woodworking and wood carving badges. Here’s the link to the requirements.
