Backup Water Pump

We have 2 pumps that support the water system. One is much older than the other and beginning to show some signs of wear. When a pump fails it puts certain areas of the camp out of water service and there can be a significant lead time to get a new one. Because of the critical nature of water service, we would like to purchase one in advance so we are prepared and do not inconvenience our guests.

Materials Needed:

Water pump

Estimated Cost: $

Electrical & Plumbing Improvements in the kitchen

Our kitchen staff works so hard during the camp season and there are some recurring issues that they have learned to work around, but we'd really like to give them a permanent solution.

In order to accomplish that, we need some re-wiring of circuits to accommodate the appliances and a water pressure tank installation.

Trade Skills Needed:

Electrician, Plumber

Estimated Cost: $

It's time to begin replacing them.

UTV

Camp maintenance includes a number of activities that could benefit greatly from the use of a UTV with a small dump bed and a snow plow attachment.

Everything from hauling the garbage cans down to the dumpster to moving brush to the burn pile and keeping egress clear during snow season would be done so much more efficiently with a UTV.

If you know of anyone willing to donate a used UTV that is in working condition, we would LOVE to hear about it!

Materials Needed:

UTV with dump bed & snow plow attachment

Estimated Cost: $6,000 (used)

This is a popular activity area during the camp season and we would love to keep it maintained for all the enjoyment it brings.

Materials Needed:

Concrete, turf

Estimated Cost: $

Restoration of the Fire Hose Game

We used to have a game that was great fun and no one stayed dry! It's called Fire Hose Water Ball and each team tries to push the ball over to the other team's side using water pressure.

One of the trees that was supporting the line fell over during the winter and we'd like to restore this game, but with some metal stands at each end instead of using the trees.

Materials Needed:

Estimated Cost: $
