KSDK --  Volunteer teams worked over the weekend to clear trees and debris from two Boy Scout properties affected by the May 8th severe thunderstorms. 

The crews worked at the S bar F Scout Ranch near Knob Lick, Missouri and the Pine Ridge Scout Camp in Makanda, Illinois doing strategic clean up fo the hundreds of trees and debris that resulted from storm winds of 60 to 80mph.   No one was injured during the severe weather.

Scout officials say as the clean up continues, additional damage continues to be found.  Some of the small structures located on the S-F Scout Ranch were damaged.  A contractor is working at the ranch this week to repair and rebuild some of the smaller structures damaged by falling trees.

Both camps are expected to open again on May 29th.  The storm damage is not expected to have any major impact on the summer camp programs at either facility.
