Sand Pond Society Accomplishments

The Sand Pond Society has taken on quite a few large projects since it was formed back in 2006.  We've documented a few of these projects below - click on the "Read More..." link on any article to find out more and view photos.

We have been able to deliver these projects due to the overwhelming generosity of the No-Be alumni community.  Please consider making a donation towards our future projects.  The Sand Pond Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.  Your donation is tax deductible.  Thanks!

Boathouse stabilized

The Sand Pond Society worked with the Northern NJ Council, BSA to stabilize the boathouse at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco.  When this structure was built in the 1950’s, the lake was at a much lower permanent level.  However, given the reintroduction of beaver back into the area, the lake level is now at a level where a portion of the wooden structure was submerged during several months of the year.  This contact with water led to severe rot at or near ground level.  In addition, some of the foundation was in need of repair.

The Society replaced all of the wood that was in contact with water with concrete block, and repaired unstable portions of the foundation.  With the structure now stable, the Council has replaced the boathouse doors creating a safer environment for our staff and campers.
