There are some extra things that can be made possible for our Mountain guests to experience with your help. We know you want your gifts to make a difference today and for the future of The Mountain. If there is a particular project featured below that fits with your interests or have an idea for another meaningful way your donation may be used, please contact our Development Director.
Mountain Facility Improvement Projects
What follows are visual examples of what could be possible with your contributions of money and time:
Two Golf Carts are needed to enable our housekeeping staff to efficiently move themselves and equipment around the campus. In addition, the carts will enable us to provide logistical assistance to our guests with mobility challenges. Estimated cost: $3,000 each
Bunk House and Cabin enhancements, including new floors, moisture barriers, mattresses, dehumidifiers, and other updates Estimated cost per unit: $500 – $1,000
Resurfacing the “Ring Road” will be necessary to improve access to cabins by car and by foot. Estimated Cost: $10,000
Lake Dam Repair–the earthen dam that forms the lake at the base will need to be repaired in the near future. This is an essential resource for our MountainCamp and other programs, and is a part of the beauty of The Mountain. Estimated Cost: $100,000
Every year we make a financial commitment to our children through campership support which enables them to experience summer camp at The Mountain. In 2016, over $13,000 was raised for camperships which made MountainCamp participation possible for 32 children and youth who may not otherwise have that opportunity without financial support.
