We are nine and a half months away from our 2020 summer camp season. After 23 years of constructing our goal is to have summer camp on our own grounds this summer! In these short nine plus months an immense amount of work still has to be completed. When any of us on staff think about all the work that needs to be done between now and then it can be easy to be completely overwhelmed and live everyday in fear. With that said we also feel the opposite end of the spectrum, we feel completely at ease knowing that God has us right where he wants us to be. Balancing between having faith and fearing the future is a scary line to walk but we take it one day at a time.
There is so much to be done but in the last few months but so much has happened. The interior of the dining hall is framed in. Plumbing, electric, HVAC (heating/ventilation/air conditioning) are all installed. The porch floor is poured and hopefully sooner than later the builders will be starting the main entrance. We have poured more concrete paths, connecting all of camp. Al’s 50’s diner doors are installed, dry wall has gone up, and the exterior is being worked on. Fiber optic is being installed in all the buildings. Lastly we have been excavating the large sand area in the middle of camp.
We had three scheduled fall work days and just added four more! We are in great need of construction help. So if you know anyone who would be willing to come out and help, it would be greatly appreciated. Every single day here is a work day, so if you ever are free and willing to come out for the day we would love to have you!

Financial update: We are 85% of the way fundraised. We need this last 15% to have camp at camp this summer. If you know anyone, any organization/group that would be wiling to get involved financially give us their information! Our biggest donations were because of relationship and personal connections.
Thank you to everyone who has come out to work and who has supported us financially and in prayer. For more information on how to support our 20/20 Vision Capital Campaign visit campdaniel.org/2020-2
