Today is our last day of summer camp. We are amazed and grateful for the Lord's provision. So many students experienced His transformative love this summer and are leaving camp forever-changed! We are also grateful for the many families who supported the Redwood Renewal, allowing the dream of new cabins to become a reality!
This morning we put the final touches on the cabins, and campers arrive tomorrow! Due to rain delays this spring the cabin bathrooms are not finished. This summer campers will continue to use the bathhouses, but don’t worry, finishing cabin bathrooms is first on our priority list for the fall! THANK YOU to everyone who gave to make these new cabins possible!
The theme of rain continues! In March, we have had 17 days of rain so far which, as you can imagine, has presented challenges. Progress continues, however, and this morning they are pouring the final cabin foundation (for one of the new ADA accessible cabins). Framing is almost complete on the cabins, and many have plywood siding and are ready for roofs. Please continue to pray for good weather and speedy work. Also, please join us on Saturday, May 11 for our Redwood Camp Cabins Dedication!
We are grateful for a break in the rain this week! This is allowing us to continue work on the roofs, and we are hoping to pour the final foundation this week. Our next steps are to complete the new roofs, weatherproof, and add siding to the new cabins!
The word of the month is: Rain! We are excited to see several of the new cabins framed as well as the final foundations poured, but it's tough to do construction with as much rain as we have had in the last couple of weeks. Please continue to pray that the weather would be favorable. As construction on the new cabins up by Victory Circle continues, we are also working on rebuilding the roofs on the lower cabins, getting ready for the addition of the half-baths!
The underground utilities have been completed and trenches have been re-filled! The foundations of the new cabins have been poured, and several of the existing cabins have been rotated to their new positions. Framing of the new cabins should begin in the next few weeks, weather permitting. Please continue to pray for good weather. We need the rain, but would love for it to happen only between 5:00 pm on Fridays and 12:00 on Sundays.
We have received our permit from the county and work is moving full speed ahead. We have begun trenching for new underground utilities, doing demo work on the roofs of cabins, and digging out the foundations for the new cabins. Please pray for favorable weather as well as unity among the contractor and subcontractors who are coordinating a very complex schedule.
Thank you to the hundreds of families who have given generously to make the Redwood Camp Renewal possible. We still need your help!
