Crafts, Creeks, Crickets and Crayfish/Balloons, Bubbles, and Bracelets
Where we are at:All of these skills need a minor facelift, along with some new resources to give them a fresh feel and vibe.
Where we want to be:Besides upgrading the crafts and activities we currently have, we would love new resources to bring new life to the skills; possibly candle making, leather working, pin making, card making, and new finishing nets. An arts and crafts fund, to explore more options to give a better camper experience.
How we can get there:Skill resources - $2500-3000

Sports Equipment/Wide Games (amount raised)
Where we are at:Right now we are using equipment that is about eight years old. Our primary source of propellent is CO2. Our paintball shed is no where near the field.
Where we want to be:The technology has changed and HPA (High Pressure Air) is now the standard. HPA cuts down on maintenance and wear and tear on the equipment, as the marker is full of rubber seals. CO2 is really hard on the seals and equipment. We would like to get a HPA(High Pressure Air) compressor, HPA tanks, generator for the compressor, and build a safe zone by the paintball area so all the equipment can be out at the course.
How we can get there:HPA Compressor - $5500
HPA Tanks - $60 x 25
Genorator - $1000
Safe Zone - $2000
Total - $10,000
Paintball (amount raised)
here we are at:Currently we have canoes that are old and not very reliable. There is no shelter to protect the canoes, so every winter we need to bring them back to the camp and during the summer, they are left on the lawn by the water. We are also getting to the point where our life jackets are becoming dated and worn.
Where we want to be:We would love to have six good quality canoes with a sheltered area for year-round storage, and a good supply of lifejackets for all ages and sizes.
How we can get there:Canoes - $1200 x 6
Life Jackets - $60 x 100 -150
Shelter - $1200
Paddles - $40 x 15
Total - $15,000-$18,000
Canoeing (amount raised)
Where we are at:We have a climbing wall that has worked really well for the last several years, however over time it is starting to show it’s age. Our ropes are getting to the end of their time, as well. We are grateful that last year we were able to purchase some auto belays, to cut down on staff needs.
Where we want to be:We would love to be able to rebuild a much bigger and better wall. The ideal would be a 50 foot wall with climbing on three sides and repelling on the fourth side.
How we can get there:Wall - $27,000 (Wall material, Engineering, Holds, etc.)
Auto belays - $3000 x 2
Total - $35,000
Climbing (amount raised)
