EXCITING NEWS! After finishing our first new Guest Group Lodge and receiving our occupancy permit on January 26, we are moving forward with the next Guest Group Lodge. With God’s blessing and your help, we finished the first lodge debt free with some money left over to start the next project. Amazing!
The old Fireside Lodge which served as the original chapel at camp and most recently as a bunk house was taken down to make room for the new and improved Fireside Lodge. Work crews are already busy at work prepping the site for the new foundation walls which will arrive in July. We hope to have the new lodge finished next spring.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! A donor family has committed a 2 for 1 matching gift to help complete the next Guest Group Lodge debt free. For every dollar we raise, they will match with two dollars up to $200,000. That means if we raise $100,000 they will match with $200,000 for a total of $300,000. Your gift will be tripled simply by responding to this need!
I’m happy to share that lead donations towards this matching gift have already generated $64,000 which means we are only $36,000 short of the full match. Praise the Lord! To give securely online click on the link above or mail your gift directly to camp and include “Matching Gift” in the memo section of your check. Thank you in advance for standing with us once again to meet this need!
As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary this year, I’m excited about all that God has done through the ministry of Camp Orchard Hill over the years and all that He will continue to do!
