Project Updates - November 2015

Here is the latest news on the Camp’s current projects:

  • Construction is now completed on the two new Chinook Village dorms to serve the Special Friends Overnight Camps. Curtains are being sewn for the window coverings and will be installed in the spring. We will also be finishing up the landscaping in the spring, after the temperatures warm up.
  • The exteriors of the Stable barns have been painted thanks to the help of several volunteers. The stables are now a nice “barn red” color. The next set of buildings to be painted will be the stables office/snack shop and vaulting barrel gym. Then all of the buildings at the Stables and Bayview will have a fresh look.
  • Work has been completed to create 100 more parking spaces for The Lights of Christmas. These spaces are needed to handle the ever-growing numbers of vehicles that arrive each evening of The Lights.

Sidewalk Project AAfter the first of the year, work will begin on these projects:

  • The work to repair the end-wall in the Cedar Lodge Dining Room will finally be done early next year. There is significant rot that must be removed and the wall repaired. In addition, new windows and doors will be installed during the repair. A back-order on materials and the need to coordinate this work around guest groups have caused this work to be delayed.
  • The Cedar Lodge Chapel refurbishment project will also be done early next year. The windows will be replaced, new window coverings installed, and interior and exterior paint will be applied.
  • The sidewalk at right was installed in the mid- 1970's. A new wider sidewalk from the Senior Community to Maple Center will be installed to improve safety and accommodate more pedestrian traffic. This project is being funded in part by a significant gift from a family.

Project Updates - October 2015

Here is the latest news on the Camp’s current projects:

  • Construction is finally nearing completion on the two new Chinook Village dorms to serve the Special Friends Overnight Camps. There is some finishing electrical and plumbing projects to be done as soon as the contractors are able to schedule the work, and outside landscaping and site grooming to be done early next year.

  • Solar Panels ProjectThe Camp was awarded a grant from the Snohomish County P.U.D. for a solar power project installed on Cedar Lodge. The solar panels are up and running, producing electricity that is providing part of the power needs for Cedar Lodge. We appreciate the fine work of Arlington Electric who did the installation and grateful for the funding received from Snohomish PUD through the Planet Power program.

  • The exteriors of the Stables barns are currently being painted with volunteer help.

  • Work is underway to create 100 more parking spaces for The Lights of Christmas. These spaces are needed to handle the ever-growing numbers of vehicles that arrive each evening of The Lights.

Project Updates - August 2015

Here is the latest news on the Camp’s current projects:

  • The renovation work in lower Cedar Lodge has been completed! This is the first time the kitchen has been expanded since the building was built in the late 1950’s. The refurbishing work in Cedar Lodge Chapel will be done next year, and will focus on updating the room, installing energy efficient windows, and upgrading the audio/visual systems.

  • SF Dorm Flooring1Construction is nearing completion on the two new Chinook Village dorms to serve the Special Friends Overnight Camps. Right now, the flooring is being installed (photo at right). We expect the dorms to be done by the end of September. Once construction is finished, there will still be some outside landscaping and site grooming to be done that we will need a work crew to help with.

  • Bayview Ranch House has received fresh paint and the new gutters have been installed.

  • Camp groups have really been enjoying the expanded fire circle and stage area at the Amphitheater this summer. These improvements are in preparation for a new permanently installed outdoor sound system scheduled to go in next year. This project is being funded by the Apostolic Family Camp and Warm Beach Camp.

  • New playground equipment in the Tot Lot is installed and ready to provide lots of fun for the younger campers. We are grateful for the donors who gave financial gifts for this project, and for the volunteers who installed it. Let the fun begin!

  • Many of our landscaping rail fences that help beautify the grounds have been replaced this summer by several MMAP volunteer groups. We are grateful for their help with this project.

  • The Camp has been awarded a grant for a solar power project that will be installed on Cedar Lodge. The project installation is scheduled for this fall, and is expected to provide up to 20% of Cedar Lodge’s power needs.
