CAMP BIRCH TRAILS SHOWER HOUSE PROGRESS

We are happy to say that the construction on the new shower house at CBT is nearly complete.  Just a few minor touch up projects, inside and out, and some site and road repairs to be completed in the spring, this beautiful, and long awaited, addition to the camp will be up and running for Summer Resident Camp 2015.

POW LOW SHOWER/TROOP HOUSE PROGRESS

After several delays the new shower house addition is now under cover (roof is on) and the interior block walls are going up.  The septic system and drain field are complete and the interior demolition is nearing completion.  With CBT almost complete, the contractors will now devote their time to this project and we anticipate completion in late December or early January.       

As details become available, the committee will share them in the Connect volunteer e-newsletter and on our Volunteer Connect website. Questions about the projects or timing should be directed to meetinggirlsneeds@gsnwgl.org.
