Pipsico Scout Reservation (PSR) is staffed with one full-time ranger. The myriad of tasks required to maintain and improve the reservation’s real estate and infrastructure far exceed the capabilities of one person
Vision of Service
Under the guidance and supervision of the Camp Ranger, the PBB performs meaningful projects that maintain and improve the camp’s facilities and appearance. The PBB follows all council processes and guidelines

Membership in the PBB is open to all. As a force multiplier supporting the camp ranger, the PBB recruits members with special skills (carpentry, plumbing, electrical, painting, masonry, automotive, HVAC, lumberjack, information technology, heavy equipment operator, etc.) and those desiring to lend a helping hand. “Special skills” is defined as “working knowledge” not professional-level expertise
