For any future wood-cutting volunteers at Camp Robert Drake, the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America requires that any persons felling trees more than 3 inches in diameter must be approved by the camp ranger, be 18 years of age, and be properly trained.
Skilled forester Gene Mochel will provide the BSA Chain Saw Safety Training course, No. 20-136 on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Camp Robert Drake. The course will begin at 8:00 am. Please bring any chain saw equipment and safety gear that you can for the training course. If you do not have equipment, certified wood-cutter Gene will provide tools as needed. Please note that the purpose of this course is to provide training for future wood-cutting volunteers at Camp Drake. Please bring a copy of a current health history. This training will require physical stamina in wood-cutting, log hauling, and limb removal. This course has room for only 8 students.
