January 2020 - present - Dining Hall Ceiling
The dining hall ceiling needed to be repaired from the water leaks. We can no longer purchase the existing ceiling “tiles.” We replaced about 1/6 of the ceiling with a dry-walled ceiling. We would like to replace the entire ceiling in the dining hall as a part of this project. While we have the ceiling torn out, we would like to add heat ducts to the rooms upstairs. This can be done easily with the ceiling torn out. This would make our facility useable earlier in the spring and later in the fall.
We will need an additional $4000 (approx.) to complete this project.
December 2019 - present - Dining Hall Restroom Renovations
The bathrooms above the dining hall were in great need of repair. Water leaks were damaging the ceiling below. Instead of just repairing the antiquated systems, new bathrooms were designed and installed. Each restroom will provide 3 sinks, 2 toilets, and 2 showers. There are still some finishing touches to complete, but these will be ready for camp in July! (The rooms above the dining hall were remodeled in 2017 and are used by the evangelists, missionaries, and other guests.)
We are in need of funding to complete this project.
