Shower House Project - We have reached our GOAL!!!

We have raised our funds to complete our much needed shower house project.  It is estimated that it will cost $88,000 to complete.  Thank you so much to all of the churches,outposts, businesses, and individuals that have contributed to this project to help it come to fruition.

We are in the process of completing the plans for the shower house and have much to resolve, including overall construction design, electrical feed and layout, water feed and plumbing layout, sanitary sewer disposal and plumbing layout, fixture selection, and much more. To see a proposed layout of the shower house click here.

The shower house location is proposed along the north side of the main dirt road cutting through camp to the right of the existing water spigots.  Preliminary plans call for the shower house to be 42'x 56' with 14 showers, 14 toilets, 12 urinals, and 14 sinks, 4 mop sinks.  It is our goal to complete plans by early summer and get the building permit and start construction by late summer or early fall of 2017, with a completion date to have it ready for our 50th anniversary Powwow in 2018.

We always have incidentals and changes or overruns that go with every project so if you have not yet contributed to the shower house project and would like to do so there is still plenty of time.  Anyone contributing $25 or more toward the project will have their name engraved on a plaque to be displayed on the shower house indicating the list of supporters and contributors toward the project.  

Please give consideration to contributing to our project as a church, outpost, business or individual.  If there are any excess funds we will use them toward another project.  We have plenty of them.  Please make all checks payable to Penn-Del District Royal Rangers and send all contributions to:

Greg Scott

As of April 4th, we have raised our share of $44,000 for the shower house project. The Sectional Presbyters are matching this amount with another $44,000.  We are at the top. Congratulations and thank you for your generous support.  Thank you so much to the Sectional Presbyters for matching our funds.

Next Camp Workday, Saturday, April 8, 2017
 

Our first workday at the Camp for the 2017 season is scheduled for Saturday, April 8th. There is plenty to do and your help at the work day and help promoting it is important. Please get the word out and encourage the men in your section to give us a hand. We will be starting at 8:00 AM and will work until 3:30 PM or until we run out of energy, whichever comes first. You are welcome to come up on Friday evening and stay the night, but meals will be on your own. However, we will have breakfast and lunch will served on Saturday.

Some of the things we have to do on Saturday are:

  • Cut down numerous dead Ash trees killed by the Ash bore beetle. This is a primary project due to safety concerns. Please bring a chainsaw if you have one.
  • Clean house
  • Remove paneling from the downstairs in the office and dining area and install sheet rock. We have removed the center wall and are renovating this area to make it more useful and attractive.
  • Install rubber on floor in attic to keep dust from coming down through the plank ceiling into the 2nd floor bedrooms.
  • Straighten up barn basement.
  • Get golf carts running.

  • Determine location for new pole building donated by church.
  • Relocate existing shed located across the road from large pavilion.
  • Install additional column support under floor beam in basement between office and dining area.
