BUILDING NEW STORIES
Since 1929 Boys Camp has been a dedicated space for boys to play, grow in leadership, enjoy the outdoors and draw closer to God. Help this valuable and powerful ministry remain strong into the future by giving to this project.
After 70 years of boys and young men making use of every inch of the structure, the Dining Hall is showing its age. The kitchen and food service areas need modernizing, the foundation needs rebuilding, and the roof leaks and need to be replaced. We all treasure the building and what it represents, but we know that for Boys Camp to keep thriving, we need to replace it. Rebuilding this well-used and much-loved building is a high priority. By replacing this community hub, Boys Camp will have a larger, modern and established place were even more young men can become life-long followers of Jesus.
Building Project Updates
The first few walls of the new Boys Camp Dining Hall are standing! The summer directors were at camp for some debrief meetings and joined in to help lift the first few walls of the Dining Hall. It is exciting to see the building become a reality right before our eyes! Lumber and trusses and other supplies have been ordered so we can stand the rest if the walls and put on the roof before the snow flies. Covid-19 has had an impact on the camp operation as a whole and has created some delays in the building process. This summer our full-time staff were focused on running a safe and amazing summer camp. As we head into the fall season, we have begun the building project with enthusiasm and focus.
Do you have a skilled trade and are willing to donate some time and work to the building of the Dining Hall? We are looking to use the resources in the camp community to build the Dining Hall affordably and professionally. Please consider partnering with us in completing this project by donating time, finances, or skill toward the new Boys Camp Dining Hall. We are thankful for the many donors, supporters and prayer partners who have been walking alongside Pioneer Camp to see this project move forward!
