Caldwell Academy Grammar School
Greensboro, NC

Caldwell Academy Grammar School Playground projects:
1.  GaGa Ball (Octoball) is a great game for kids.  It requires an eight sided "pit" (walls, not digging) approximately 20' or 25' diameter.  I can provide plans.  The project will require some fund raising and probably a one day build with fellow scouts and adults if available. 
2.  Four Square is another great game for kids.  The need is for one concrete pad approximately 12' x 25'.  This project will require some fund raising and organizing a crew to lay out, mix (or have delivered ) cement and finish.  Probably one or 1 1/2 days to complete on an already level site.
