Service Projects

If your organization would like to contribute to the growth and preservation of Camp Big Mac we welcome your interest and involvement both during your stay at camp and for more extensive Service, Eagle and Ordeal Projects.

Here are a selection of past Service Projects, Eagle Projects and Ordeal Projects that have been done in recent years. Eagle Projects and Ordeal Projects usually require more upfront work and more on-site time than a few hours service during your visit.

If you have an idea and would like to work on a project, please use the Contact Us page to let us know, and we will coordinate with you.
