Sinoquipe Camp Stewards
Created in 2012, the Sinoquipe Camp Stewards promotes Scouting values and fellowship by continually maintaining and improving the Sinoquipe Scout Reservation, lovingly called Camp Sinoquipe, for future generations. The Camp Stewards assist in getting camp prepared for the summer season, works on various projects at camp including the construction of the Lakusin Pavilion for the First Year Campers program, and resanding the floors of Kerstein Lodge and Altenderfer Lodge, and also supports camp programs, including the purchase of four new kayaks, and a popcorn maker for winter camping Saturday movie nights and summer camp. Along with work days, the Camp Stewards meet quarterly.
These past several years have brought many new and exciting changes to the Sinoquipe Scout Reservation. With the help of volunteers and staff, there have been marked improvements in the overall condition of the buildings and grounds. The Camp Stewards program allows its members to choose what projects to move forward on and funds them through membership dues. Most projects are things that may not be in the Council’s budget, but are still important and will make a lasting difference in camp. Projects can be capital projects or program related items.
To help improve Camp Sinoquipe and keep it a premier Scouting destination, consider joining the Sinoquipe Camp Stewards, and experience the fun and fellowship for yourself.
