Camp Projects

Work days are a wonderful way to contribute time toward building a legacy. Each year you will receive several opportunities to donate your labor while we perform maintenance and building tasks around the camp. If you are unable to make the next scheduled event, rest assured there will be more opportunities in the future.

What to expect...
Each work day will begin with a set of tasks that are defined in advance of your arrival to Camp Williams. A list of needed materials will be provided on this website that you will need to bring in order to participate in the work for specific projects.

How do I sign up?
If you are planning to attend one of the scheduled work days you must RSVP with Chad Hutson by the date indicated by sending him an email to: chad@stxroyalrangers.com.

What if I cannot physically help?
We understand that it is not possible for everyone to help out the way that they may like; however, each project that gets schedule requires materials to complete. Financial donations play a very important role in our ability to schedule and complete a project. If you feel so led we would encourage you to donate monetarily to the camp using our GoFundMe or by sending a check to our P.O. box.

Whether it is your prayer, time, or financial support, we sincerely appreciate your contribution to this most worthy cause.
