Spring Projects

new activity

Pictured are several of the current projects under way in preparation for the 2019 summer camp season. Above is part of a new lake activity. Check back soon to find out what it is. Hint: it's in the lake, beside the blob, under the zipline, and is inflatable.
Below shows an addition to the Depot game area, the newly renovated zipline deck, the "Little Big Top" (dining tent) back in place, the rappel deck refinished, and the lake...what's missing in this picture?

Landscape Volunteer Workday

Tim Simounet of Englewood Lawn & Landscapes organized and directed a group of volunteers on a beautiful Saturday for seasonal maintenance and preparation of landscape features along the recreational lake and administration office complex. The workday included a delightful train ride into the gorge for lunch. Volunteers are a wonderful and important part of the ministry.

One of the most popular summer water features is the Triple Water-Landing Zipline. A short trail up the mountain leads to the deck where the wild ride begins. The weather-aged decking is being replaced...just in time for another exciting summer of crazy fun at the lake!
