Summer is Here!
Summer 2011 is officially here. Thank you to all the volunteers and hard working staff who have worked so diligently to get the camp ready for our first campers.
Our new waterfront is in place and is working great. It is much safer for younger campers and campers who have trouble walking. Thanks to everyone who helped us purchase the new docks and ramp.
I want to recognize a very special group of friends who call themselves the "New Jersey Group." For 13 years this missions group, who at one time or another have all lived in NJ, have spent the two weeks before camp begins volunteering at camp. They have done so many projects, it would be impossible to name them all. This year, they painted three cabins, built a wonderful deck on the old Day Camp building, and put the finishing touches on the new swim area. The staff all consider them family. Fred and Bonnie Smith, two members of this group, make up gift bags for each staff member. These gifts are cherished and we are so grateful for their thoughtfulness. This group also collects funds for work materials, and each year hands us more than $1,000 to go towards projects at camp. After much praying, the group decided that this would be their last trip to Mechuwana. We want them know how much we appreciate them and how much we will miss them. Thank you and God Bless.
