The sounds of cement trucks, hammers, back-hoes, electricians and plumbers have been heard at our three sites as we continue to fulfill the site master plans and improve the facilities serving our guests and campers. The $2.25 million in resources for these Phase One master plan improvements come from the previous sale of camps.
LAKE MICHIGAN CAMP AND RETREAT
Ground-breaking, cement pouring and carpentry has begun on the two new bathhouses in the north and west parts of the campground. These will grow the total in each area from three to six toilets and from four to six showers and add proximity to the campsites. Improvements to the welcome center, dining hall and dining hall bathrooms are completed.
The kitchen area has gone through a total remodel, moving the dish room and creating much needed space in the cooking area. New plumbing, lighting, electric and internet upgrades have been completed. Last year, the Retreat Center underwent a complete remodel with new carpet, HVAC, windows and furniture. This month we purchased the house on the lake located within the camp property to provide much needed staff housing.
LAKE HURON RETREAT CENTER
Guest room bathroom renovations are underway that has included replacing tubs with showers, as well as landscaping and parking lot paving. Last year’s improvements include new roofs, a new keyless entry system for guests and HVAC system.
