Sugar Shack Update

Update on the Sugar Shack The Sugar Shack has taken shape and is almost ready for this spring’s sap season. We are thankful to all those who have donated material, time, and money to the project. It has been a fun project to work on. A few improvements have been made to the first conceptual design making it more useful to fit with the camp program. It has already been put to use this fall with apple cider season for many campers in Science Day Camps and Family Fun Day. The size of the building was increased to add more learning space. Concrete was poured and beams laid by the summer camp counselors. In August a missions team finished most of it up with walls, windows, doors and a roof. This fall we built the lean-to for our wood and sap supply. This winter we will finish off the electrical and plumbing. We have been working on our camp science curriculum to go with the syrup making process for multiple age groups. We can’t wait till March when campers will be here and experience the process. We are having our first Sap Run race and open house on April 2nd to promote our new program and help support the summer camping program. The cost of the Sugar Shack with its improvements has cost $9100. $6700 has been donated to the project. There is $1000 more in material and teaching equipment that we need to purchase to fully complete the project. In other words, another $3400 will fully pay for the entire project. It has been a great addition to the camp. The Sugar Sack teaches the sweet beauty of Psalm 91. It is a joy to see the gospel proclaimed through the study of God’s creation.
