Construction of new front entrance with stone walls and sign on either side of driveway. Entrance will have metal gates that can be closed to secure the camp at night. The hillside on the right side of the driveway will be cut back in the entrance area to make the entrance and sign more visible from approaching traffic on Hwy. 371. A 3-foot high rail fence will be built approximately 100 feet out from each side of the entrance. Landscaping and lighting will be added to make the front entrance more welcoming to guests.
Project Status: currently in the fundraising stage.
Southland's boat dock and lake experience are both staple activities of every camp and retreat throughout the year. The existing setup is small, outdated, and harmful to the boating equipment due to the sun exposure especially in the summer months. Mike Graham has worked to design a new boat dock and fishing pier which will be located right in front of cabin eight. The new boat docks will feature covered boat docks, a storage shed for fishing equipment, a fishing pier extending out into the lake for prime fishing angles, and much more.
Project Status: we have raised the funds for this project and are ready to begin construction.
The plan is to completely re-plaster the interior of the pool, replace all the plumbing, and pour new concrete decks around the pool. Also included in this project will be a replacement of the lower diving board. The high dive will be replaced with a rock climb wall and a jump off tower. Another part of this project is construction of a pool equipment building to replace the existing metal roof structure that is badly deteriorated. This building will also incorporate a bathroom at the pool. The pool is the most heavily used camp activity thus pushing it high on the priority list. Our desire is to have this project completed prior to the 2020 summer camp season.
Project Status: we are putting the final touches on aesthetics and activities around the pool area.
