During the summer of 2019, we started researching, thinking and talking to other camps about the design of their Health Centers. We had started saving money and were ready to jump in to the project as soon as the campers left at the end of this summer.
With the changing physical and mental health needs of our kids, we had planned to break ground on a remodel right after camp in 2020. Unfortunately, the money we have saved for this project is currently being used to keep people working, taking care of our grounds and other business needs due to not operating during the summer of 2020.
The new building would provide more privacy and isolation rooms (better for communicable diseases in the future like COVID-19), a better medication dispersal system and storage, and space to meet the mental, emotional and social health needs of our campers. We still feel strongly that this is a priority as we look to reopening stronger in 2021.
We need to be progressive and be ever so ready to meet the needs of our campers in this world that has changed. We can use a ski boat for another year or wait to refinish the tennis court, but we cannot and will not wait in areas of healthcare and preventive care for our campers. Our hearts tell us that it is the right decision, our heads tell us it is crazy to building when our “building account” is slowly draining. Ultimately we feel that going ahead with building the health center is the right thing for our camp community.
