Maintenance Building/Roofing Project Update:
Volunteers and staff will be working on the New Maintenance Shop on Wednesdays. The shop will be behind the old one, hidden back in the woods. Once it is finished the plan is for the office to expand from its corner of the old shop building and take over the entire building. This is the final project from the Capital Campaign done between 2001 and 2005. The Capital Campaign has also replaced the Lakeside and Rising Sun Cabins, replaced the RV Campground sewage and built a new Staff Duplex.

Funds for the new Shop have been raised and set aside. The foundation, walls, roof and siding are done. Currently electrical and insulation work is being done.

Volunteers are invited to come help camp staff. If you have a crew that can come on a Wednesday, contact CBD by email or (814) 667-2355. Lunch is provided! Get here early enough and we’ll find you some breakfast too!  

Other maintenance projects in October and November 2015 will include the replacment of two roofs. Thanks to volunteers who joined camp staff and board members the roof to the Nature Center was replaced on October 7. If you would like to help with the office roofing project please contact Camp Blue Diamond by email or (814) 667-2355. Thanks to the churches and the families that raised $57,000 for all the new roofs, six have been replaced to date with two to go.
