Project Updates – May 2014

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

  • Work continues in the basement of Cedar Lodge. The new walls are being painted, doors hung, and windows trimmed out. Soon, we will have the electrical and sprinkler systems finished, flooring put down in the offices, and the drop ceiling hung. The main concrete floors have been sanded and sealed with a non-slip clear finish. There has been wonderful volunteer labor support for this project, thus far. The new walk-in cooler and freezer are ordered and we are hoping to have them ready to install in June.
  • A new manure shed to improve our manure management may not seem like a glamorous project, but it is very important! We are hoping to complete the shed this fall if cost sharing funding from the Snohomish Conservation District is approved.
  • Cost estimates are being revised and the planning for horse stalls for vaulting horses is underway. The timing of this project depends upon raising sufficient funds and receiving County permit approval. We would like to have them built before winter, but still have need for more funding.

  • A certified arborist has volunteered for a forestry health project involving the marking and removal of trees in the RV area. As the trees have become older, the density needed to be reduced to provide for stronger, healthier trees. The dead wood that can be a hazard is being removed, and with more sunlight for the understory plants, the forest will become more lush and healthy. The trees taken down will be used for firewood this summer and during The Lights of Christmas.
  • For the W-Bar-B Ranch summer program, the staff and volunteers are constructing space for a modified paint ball course and a human foosball game. Both of these will greatly increase the diversity of fun activities at Camp.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with any projects, whether you have a few hours or a few days, email Jessica Wilson or call her at 360-312-3417.

Come a Little Closer

I stopped in to visit my Father-In-Law, now 90 years old. He is a farm kid athlete from Snohomish WA. “Crazy Legs” was his nickname for speed and agility in football and track. In High School, the Lord got hold of his life, and he ended up being a pastor. As I knocked on his door, he met me with tears of joy in his eyes as he had been reflecting on a particular Sunday a long time ago when ...
