Renderings of Proposed Lodge

We are very excited to share artist renderings of what the proposed camp lodge could look like! Click here to see a front view of the lodge as you enter the lodge area. Click here to see the back side of the lodge that overlooks a wooden ravine area of camp.

If the needed funding is raised, construction on the lodge will begin Fall of 2014 and be completed May of 2015.

Blueprint of Proposed Lodge

Click here to see a detailed blueprint of the proposed lodge. We were very excited to share the proposed plan at our Town Hall meetings, at Journey the World, and with groups who are dedicated to seeing the lodge built.

Because of insightful feedback from volunteers and girls, the plan has already been re-developed a few times to make sure it meets the needs of those who will use it. Here are a few examples of changes that were implemented from feedback:  added fire pits outside each bunk unit, developed an area dedicated for flag ceremonies, added plumbing in the storm shelter and a fireplace in the dining room. If you have suggestions or feedback regarding the proposed lodge, please send them to
