Where We Were
Two summers ago our director and his family were living in a decaying mobile home at the camp; and, the Brown Retreat Center was in desperate need of a facelift. We wanted something better for camp and our staff.
Where We Are
With the mobile home rapidly becoming unlivable, last winter generous donors and volunteers like you gave the Brown Retreat Center a makeover to meet both needs: that of providing a temporary housing solution for the director’s family, and giving a much-needed renovation to Brown.
Where We Are Going
Something wonderful happened at our camp this summer. We GREW from just under 400 campers in 2011, to nearly 500 campers this summer! That’s a lot of campers! We have a wonderful new problem: we need more cabin space! Now camp needs the Brown Retreat Center back for its true purpose of a being a cabin and nurse’s station. The solution? 1) Build a house that will provide for staff housing needs, allowing the director and his family to stay at camp, and 2) reopen Brown as a cabin!
