052219 Another SLC Update

Since the April post and the Woodchuck event, much has gone on at the camp. Not only has the camp season officiallybegun, but the old pump-house has been removed, a new bridge was installed over the pond and the landscaping around the lodge has begun.


The weather has been very unpredictable, but even in poor conditions, work has been moving forward with plenty of inside work.

Bunkhouse door frames are installed at this point and ready for doors.

The Niemela and Ylioja crew came to install the Sauna’s and window sills.

Things are happening fast now with the first of the new bunkbeds due this Friday (24th) and mattresses to follow in June. Bath partitions are scheduled for delivery beginning of June, so we will need some assemblers and installers then. Plumbers are starting to install toilets and are finishing up the HVAC work.

Thanks to everyone for all their help and we are most thankful that the Heavenly Father has blessed this project and watched over our crews.

God’s Peace
