Capital Campaign List

There are a number of projects on the camp property that would add value to the property and improve the experiences of the campers who utilize the property. This list only highlights a few and we are open to new ideas.

If you or your group is interested in helping us with one of these projects, please contact us. At this point we are looking for volunteers who are willing to follow a project through from planning and funding to execution and will expect groups to submit a written proposal outlining their plan.

If you can think of a project that is not on this list, please let us know what you are thinking so we can determine if it fits within the camp mission. We would love to hear your ideas.
