A VOLUNTEER PROJECT SUGGESTION
Join us for our first-ever project in the Black Hills National Forest! We’ll spend the week at the historic Camp Bob Marshall, reconstructing paths in the campground, building stairs, and adding railways to make the paths safer for users.
Service Project Details
Volunteer your time in the beautiful Black Hills National Forest in western South Dakota! We’ll spend the week at Camp Bob Marshall, a youth camp located on the shore of Bismarck Lake in the Black Hills National Forest with rustic buildings constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the late 1930s. We will be reconstructing pathways in the campground, building stairs, and adding railways to make the paths safer for users.

Free Time Details
Spend your free day hiking the numerous trails in nearby Custer State Park (across the street) and Black Hills National Forest. We will be a short distance from Black Elk Peak, South Dakota’s highest peak, and many other beautiful trails. Rent a kayak and take it for a spin on Stockade Lake, Sheridan Lake, Pactola Lake, or Sylvan Lake – or take a scenic drive on Needles Highway. We are a short drive to Crazy Horse Monument, Mount Rushmore Monument, Wind Cave, Jewell Cave, and Rushmore Cave. A bit further away is the Mammoth Site (Hot Springs, SD), historic Deadwood, SD, Spearfish Canyon, and Badlands National Park.
Ask your project leader for local suggestions – they are area experts!
We will be staying in a dormitory/bunkhouse at Camp Bob Marshall. Communal showers will be available.
