Projects of SCV Camp 68

The sign of a healthy camp, and one that others would want to be a part of, are the projects that members have been involved in, especially those that were conceived by the camp itself.  Here is a listing of the projects we have been working on.

  CS Medal of Honor - Adam W Ballenger One of the first tasks when the camp was reformed was to pursue the Medal of Honor for our camp's namesake, Adam Washington Ballenger
