Mountaineers Village

There is some construction going on in the South of camp - the Maintenance boys are building a long awaited new village for our summer camp Mountaineers program (ages 14-16).

It's going to be so sweet - a big gazebo, 4 luxurious camper cabin tents and a staff tent.

Mountaineers will be able to hone their classic Paco Tacos - Tortilla, P-nut butter, chocolate and marshmallows in the Gazebo's new multi- purpose BBQ kitchen!! The tents are custom canvas and are filled with awesomely comfortable wooden bunk beds built by our volunteer Y's Men!!

For the past 25+ years the Mountaineers have stayed in the old A-Frames in the South Village - or as some old timers know it - the Lower 40's. While the old village had "character" and plenty of "charm" it has been ready for an upgrade for the past few years.

The addition of the new village is going to make one of our sweetest programs all the more sweet!

Not an artists but Simon's rendition of the awesome new Mountaineers Village.

(This sketch is not necessarily a true representation of how awesome the new village is really going to be.)

BONUS - Check out a time lapse video of the roof being raised...

  5. “Hey what about that \"staircase\" up to the A-frames? \'cus I hated how steep and far apart those steps were.”
