Schools and playgrounds need upgrades occasionally to meet safety and accessibility standards. The same is true for summer camps.
MiVoden's facilities desperately need repair. In addition to needed safety upgrades, 37 years of camper traffic have left carpets thread-bare and countertops worn through. But restoration is just a small part of the picture.
Our growing and changing camp constituency has different needs than they had 37 years ago. In addition to regular camp attendance, whole families are seeking quality time together, and more church groups and organizations are seeking a quality retreat experience year-round. All this points to a new look for MiVoden.
The first phase of the master plan calls for building eight new youth cabins and bringing infrastructure up to current code, such as improved RV locations, an improved wastewater system, access roads, and a reservoir for domestic water use and fire suppression. Future phases include remodeling the current cabin structures and building a gymnasium, a multi-use cafeteria facility, and a nature center.
We need $1 million for t he first phase of our master plan. Each new cabin duplex will cost approximately $125,000.
