Tools Needed for Camp Drake
Camp Drake would appreciate any hand or power tools for its workshop, garden tools for outdoor work, or recreational equipment that you no longer need. Hand tools or power tools, such as screwdrivers, pliers, saws, etc., help with the many mechanical requirements of camp maintenance. Garden tools, like rakes, shovels, or weed whips, allow additional volunteers to complete projects on service days. Any outdoor recreation equipment will be put to good use with the Scouts at summer camp. From balls & bats to camping gear, from golfing supplies to boating equipment, please contact Mike Graham at the Raymond Lee Scout Service Center at 217-356-7291 if you can provide a gift for Camp Drake.
