Funds are needed to complete the following projects. Please click on the donation button below to donate any amount.
The current maintenance shed needs to be replaced. A new shed will be built near the caretaker's residence to ensure safety and accessibility. A donation of $50,000 has already been received. To complete the project, an additional $50,000 - $70,000 will be needed. Please feel free to donate any amount of money to help build the new maintenance shed. (Final structure may be different than pictured.)
The mattresses in the cabins are beginning to wear and some need replacement. This year, we need to replace 60 of the 149 mattresses. In coming years, the plan is to replace an additional 15 mattresses until all have been refreshed. Each mattress costs approximately $325. Please feel free to donate any amount of money to help replace the mattresses. (Item is subject to change, depending on availability.)
The current pool slides have exceeded their life-expectancy and need to be replaced. The new pool slide will cost $10,000 to purchase and install. Please feel free to donate any amount of money to help install a new pool slide. (Item is subject to change, depending on availability.)

Please help us welcome our new caretakers, Matt and Tammy Oltman, from Arkoe Restoration Branch! They are getting settled on the grounds and enjoying the start of their first camping season with the Fall Retreats. We believe they will be a great asset to our camping program.
We installed a brand new beach-front entry pool with two water slides!
Fixed our water drainage problem with a new, 120 foot drain pipe to help direct water safely away from buildings and facilities.
We put in a new retaining wall by the Dining Hall and made space for more parking.
Broke ground for a new bath house by the pool, which will have bathroom facilities, changing rooms, and a storm shelter!
The Older Youth Camp completed a service project to build new railings on both sides of the bridge by the Dining Hall.
Installed new (donated) cabinets in the Dining Hall for added storage and countertop space!
Demolished the original bath house in Happy Hollow due to safety concerns.
Completed work on the new bath house, including a new sidewalk!
As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on the generosity of our church congregations, individual members, and the community. All of these improvements, as well as the regular maintenance of our facilities, would not be possible without support from people like you!
