Field Camp Renovation Project

Author: awood

Naming Opportunities

The field camp renovation project is almost complete! However, because we increased the scale of the project beyond initial plans, we still need to raise another $170,000. Naming opportunities are available that will allow you to leave your own legacy on the facility or to make a memorial gift or tribute in honor of someone special. Once project costs are complete, naming gifts will be directed to our long-term endowed field camp fund or our annual operations fund.
