April 10-12, 2015
What an amazing weekend! We accomplished so much throughout the weekend it's hard to express our sincere gratitude to all who came out to help.
Lots of tree cut up, split and then moved to one of the two fire pits to be stacked for later use; Woods Cabin 3 had two layers of shingles removed, cleaned up and new shingles laid; beach was raked; batteries replaced throughout the entire camp; picnic tables painted, lifeguard tower painted along with other painting projects throughout; electrical work done in the Sandpiper Cabins; windows cleaned inside and out in mulltiple buildings; and there was more work done. The best part... that was all at the Girls Camp. The Boys Camp north field was cleared of down trees / brush; climbing wall has a layer of wood chips and ready for summer; the dining hall was scraped and the first coat of paint is on; brush cleared at pioneer; and the gym was throughly cleaned and mopped!
Our dedicated work crew consisted of current summer staff, alumni, campers, die hard families and friends; the Youth Ministry Programs of St. Jane Frances de Chantel, Christ the Good Shepherd and St. Cyprian; and young adults from Siena Heights and Madonna Universities.
Photos include what it looked like before everyone arrived. Friday's work crew working into dark and our long day on Saturday. Saturday we worked from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. when we stopped to celebrate Liturgy on camp. Fr. Bob Fisher joined us and participants of the weekend assisted and sang beautifully! Saturday night we ended with our annual "Spoons" competition. Congratulations to Alex who won! We also had a log rolling contest on Saturday. Congrats to the ladies of CGS whose team work brought them First Place! Sunday everyone helped move as much wood as we could, finished up projects, burnt more brush, etc. etc. Just an amazing weekend!
Thank you to everyone that came out and gave of their time! A special thank you to those who made a financial contribution to assist with the weekend projects. So grateful to all! So excited for summer to be here!
