We would like to thank each of you for your support of Camp Mechuwana. Because of the generosity of thousands of people Mechuwana has flourished for more than 60 years. Mechuwana continues to grow and reach out to people of all ages through our programs and our commitment to provide scholarships to families and individuals who are in need of financial assistance.
The economic reality of our state and country the last two years has forced us to put much of financial resources into scholarships. We turn no camper away for financial reasons. Due to the economy and the growing need for financial help from families, we have had to put some vital physical plant needs on hold. Consequently there are a few items that we need to address this year. These items directly reflect the safety and well being of our campers and volunteers.
As we enter the new year and get ready for our Summer 2011 season, we ask that you consider a gift toward the following items we need to purchase in 2011.
Needed for 2011:
New Swim Dock and Ramp: Cost $11,000.00
Automated External Defibrillators: (AED) Cost $ 1,200.00
Eye wash station for Nurses building and Maintenance building: Cost $ 750.00
