In addition to the Volunteer Center for meeting and laundry, we are in desparate need of housing for summer volunteers. Volunteer Camp Pastors and Nurses are needed every week to support the summer youth camps. Additionally, we turn away seasonal volunteers who need lodging. A lease lot cabin previously owned by the Palmer family is being upgraded to support volunteer lodging needs. Keep your eyes out for the Palmer House to be on-line the Summer of 2008.

During the Summer of 2007, we launched a project to raise the quality of treated wastewater outfall to a "Re-Use" standard for reintroduction into the environment. This critical project allows us to exceed Dept. of Ecology standards for wastewater treatment plant discharge and will relocate the discharge point from a small stream to directly into Port Susan Bay. Thus, the "re-use" water will more rapidly dilute into the saltwater even further away from any housing. Re-use water can also be used for topical irrigation, flushing toilets, and other non-drinking applications. It is the highest standard of treated wastewater possible.
The pump and filtration systems are already in place. The Summer of 2008 will be when we install the pipes to Port Susan Bay and complete the project.
A new 9-hole minature golf course was installed last year along with a new golf shack that offers snacks & drinks as well as golf equipment. This spring and summer we will be including additional patio seating and other finishing touches.
