Moments in between summer camp and camp rentals gives camp staff the opportunity to work on maintenance and repairs. After a heavy load of summer campers, the camp needs some time to rebound.
A few summer staff stay on to help with maintenance and repairs. Window washing, paint touch ups, floor polishing and a variety of projects that need attention.
Winter and Spring projects will e identified for camp improvements. Fircrest cabin interiors were repainted, light fixtures replaced, bunks painted, ceilings sealed, caulked and painted, windows removed, cleaned, recalled, painted and hardware updated last winter. The improvements were a delight for the young girls who stay in Fircrest each summer. They loved the changes. Greenwood Unit is scheduled for the same work this winter.
All of the cabins were inspected yesterday and issues identified that need addressed. Keeping the cabins in great shape for campers is important to the administration of the camp.
Stay tuned for some articles on the Champions of Faith Benefit Dinner and learn about how that event helps CYO and Camp Howard activities.

Hi Sr. Krista! The pictures of the camp are beautiful, even though a lot of hard work goes into making the camp look inviting. You’ve got a great team working with you!
Thank you, Susan, for your message! We appreciate your time and attention!
