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:

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, September 30, 2017
 

Our last scheduled workday at the Camp for the 2017 season is scheduled for Saturday, September 30th. 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 4:00 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:

  • Finish sheet rock in the 1st floor of the Farm House where we are making a large meeting/dining room. May need some framing. Finish Installing counter top. (need fine tooth cutting blade and guide and clamps to cut the edge of the countertop precisely). Then screw gun or driver to screw down counter top attaching it to the supporting framework, careful to not go thru the top.
  • Plan flooring for farm house large meeting room.
  • Clean up farm house basement and add additional support column in basement between office and dining area.
  • Trim carefully around Arborvitaes (push mower). Note any dead ones so we can get replacements. Also weed whacking needs done our front along the road.
  • More dead Ash trees killed by the Ash bore beetle need to be cut down due to safety concerns. Please bring a chainsaw if you have one. A tree has blown down in the flag raising area of the camp and needs removed. Thee are many limbs down in different areas of the camp that need removed.
  • There is also plenty of wood to split if you can bring a wood splitter.
  • Weed whack around buildings and prepare camp site for Rendezvous.
  • New pole building
  • Seal roof leak
  • Seal holes in east side metal wall
  • Seal vertical crack where sheet metal meets concrete blocks on the south side
  • Trim to even up east side roof edge – strike a line and cut straight
  • Put on roof corner brackets (they are there)
  • Paint roof white and walls green
  • Double check locks and keys on man door.
  • Installation of playground equipment. Chad Hetrick can provide feedback if any work needs to be done at the work day
  • Relocate existing shed located across the road from large pavilion.
  • Service tractors, mowers
  • Shoot the topo of the pageant and audience area. Also shoot topo of proposed Shower House area
