While we have not been able to have campers this summer, we have had many teens and adults come to use their talents and time to accomplish a great deal. Concrete has been poured for new porches and a space to cook with our grills. Several buildings have been painted and repaired, including the girls dorm. A new space for our water equipment was also built which will provide room to keep the water flowing safely. Beyond all of that, the Lord has provided a new tractor to replace the old one which has been chugging around the property for over 20 years. Here are just a few pictures to tell the story.
In light of construction projects and the very wet spring there is a lot to do to get ready for camp. We will be mowing, weed eating, chipping brush, landscaping around the buildings, cleaning cabins, and a variety of other tasks to be ready for campers.
If you can come please let us know. We want to make sure we are ready for you.
When: Saturday June 22 and Saturday June 29

Thank you for your assistance and prayer.
The new cabins continue to take shape, the result of a great deal of hard work and dedication. We are thankful to all who have helped.
We are excited to see the progress on the new cabins. We wanted to share a few pictures of the framing process. We are looking to put up the trusses on December 27 – 29, 2018. If you would like to help we would be glad to have you. Please contact the camp office for more details.
The concrete portion of the construction of the three new cabins is complete. The first cabin slab was poured on October 23, the staff cabin on October 25 and the other camper cabin on the 26th. The weather was not completely cooperative as there was some rain and sleet along the way but the work continued and the foundations and floors finished.
For the staff cabin, a conveyer belt was used to move the concrete. However, the belt broke down after just 16 of the 46 yards had been poured. This meant that the remaining 30 yards had to be moved with a high tech tool called a shovel.
Due to the freezing temperatures, concrete blankets were used to cover the freshly poured concrete to allow it to cure properly. We appreciate the generosity of Upland Construction for loaning camp the blankets.
We have a team from Heritage Home Concepts taking the lead on the project with a number of volunteers helping out as they can. We are so thankful for those who have given their time and talents to keep the project moving forward. Overall, 107 yards of concrete were poured. What a blessing to have this first step of the project finished.
We hope to being framing the cabins towards the end of December and will do our best to keep you informed of the progress. We covet your prayer that the Lord will allow the work to continue and that we would be able to use these buildings this coming summer. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to help in any way with this project.
