Our first Camp Norse project was refurbishing the Lighthouse/Tower at the water front. The structure was in poor condition due to the weather and vandalism, The Texture 1-11 was removed from the lower portion of the building. Some of the framing needed to be repaired then new siding, corner borders, a door, and paint was applied. The top had some bad T 11, trim boards and windows were replaced and railings painted.
When we started building the museum we eliminated a storage room that was used for summer camp staff to store sports equipment. One of our projects this summer was to build a new storage shed. This project was completed by alumni at no cost to the council or camp. Actually no cost to anyone. We used material that was left over from previous projects.
Our next project is to address the drainag esituation in the ball field. For years the field has drained towards the craft cabin which now houses the Scouting Museum @ Camp Norse. The current plan is to dig a 350’ ditch from in front of the building going behind the ball field backstop. With the support of the T L Edwards Corp we’re hoping this will be completed before winter.
At the November 1, 2018 Alumni Exec board meeting it was voted to purchase a CNC machine. A computer numerical control (CNC) router is a computer-controlled cutting machine related to the hand-held router used for cutting various hard materials, such as wood,composites, aluminum, steel, plastics, glass, and foams. This will be used by Ranger Karrie to make signs for camp and we’ll use it for signs, labels, etc for the museum.
