Make A Wish!

Each year in October we’re asked to update our annual wish list. We are always in need of good quality equipment and supplies. Although almost any gift would be welcome, below is a list of our current needs.

And remember: even if it seems small, any donation helps out camp & makes a real difference. Many thanks to those who have contributed the funds or items on our wish list in the last 12 months! We've had donations of kayaks, a ping-pong table for the new Eddie Boersema Education and Activity Center, awesome costumes and materials for Leopold Benches.

Perhaps you know someone who may be interested in donating an item they don't use any more, or maybe you'd like to fund a gift as a Christmas gift from your family!
