Camp for 60 ~ Phase 1
Longview is beginning an exciting, three-phase project to expand capacity from 40 to 60 campers and to improve our ability to serve them better!
The primary goal of phase one is to address four needs that will set Longview up well for future expansion and effective ministry:
Overhaul an existing cabin to use for summer staff and intern housing. We currently have one staff cabin for girls. Staff guys use a camper cabin during project weeks and are creatively shuffled around when campers are here.
Wrap up deferred maintenance. The Scout cabin has needed siding and insulation replaced since day one. Ponderosa needs the floor refinished and an AC/heat unit installed. The Lodge also needs a tile line put in to address water issues.
Purchase a tracked skid steer or tractor. We have spent $30,000 renting a skid steer over four summers. That’s half the cost of a new cabin! We would like to purchase our own for dirt work, road maintenance, snow removal, and moving logs and building supplies year-round. Some projects just can’t be done with a shovel!
Improve our activities. Help us add more laser tag equipment, a dock for the pond, and begin work on a new snow tubing hill to use for winter camps!
Phase One of Camp for 60 has an estimated cost of $80,000.
$24,000 has already come in for this project!
