Slumber Falls Camp 2020 Fall Work Weekend 10/23-10/25
Having two work weekends worked out so well in 2019, we are excited to do again this year!
Please join us for fun, good food, hard work and fellowship in this season of pandemic. We will of course be practicing social distancing and mask wearing when doing projects inside but most things will be outside.
We will be finishing up transitioning from summer camp mode to retreat group / family group mode and prepping the property for winter. We are currently compiling the project list and will share it soon.
Please remember if you or someone in your family needs volunteer hours for school, college applications or court mandated community service hours…this counts! There is no cost for the weekend, but Love Offerings are always appreciated. Lodging, Saturday breakfast, lunch and supper and Sunday breakfast are all provided.
Water of Life – Well #1 Repairs
While SFC is currently running a COVID Campaign to mitigate the financial state of the camp as a result of the pandemic, we also are seeking donations to cover the expenses of repairing Well #1. In mid-August, both wells on the property went down. While we were able to repair Well #2 in house, Well #1 faced more serious issues. The pump on Well #1 seized up and burnt a section of electrical wiring. We called in Kutscher Drilling in to replace the pump, a section of pipe, and wiring, which amount to $2,800. A day before they came, the water reservoir tank in Well #1 sprang a leak. David Lamensky is helping us repair the tank, but we are reaching out for donations to cover this non-budgeted repair expense. If you have a passion for water, bathing/showering, or even drinking it in some form or fashion, consider giving a donation to the Water of Life effort so that others may experience the joys that come from fresh well water.
