Camp Take Action Project

We have an opportunity to complete a Take Action project at Camp Seawood this year! Take Action projects are a requirement for journeys and completing a Take Action project at camp will fullfill this requirement. So my question to all of you, what should we do for a Take Action project. It can be anything from building picnic tables, creating nature trails, creating a garden at camp, flower boxes/flower pots, etc….so lets start the brainstorming process! Comment below with your ideas!
