The camp staff and NCCC team Bluno have been extremely busy this winter, completing construction and service projects that are making camp even better. Renovation of the Milky Way Freddy is nearly complete (picture above). The interior is all updated – new shower and toilet stall partitions, fresh paint, new waterproof wall coverings in the shower, an epoxy coating on the floor and new paint on the walls. Still left to do: shower & toilet stall partitions, new storage shelves and trim work.

NCCC spent much of their first month here working on the waterfront. The photo above shows the sections of the swim dock that were removed from the water, then the undersides were scraped and cleaned. In the next two weeks, these sections will be put back in the water. The floating docks must be removed and cleaned every 2-3 years to keep the growth (mussels, kelp, anemones, sea stars, etc.) from permanently damaging the docks.

If you’ve spent a lot of time at the waterfront, you know that storage for canoes & rowboats can be a nightmare! NCCC and the maintenance staff rebuilt the canoe racks – they now stack 3 canoes high instead of two, leaving more room for storage for the rowboats, sailboats and windsurf boards.
In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be posting pictures of other projects that are currently in the works:
  • New screens on all of the Blueberry Hill cabins (and hopefully soon, the Horizon cabins as well)
  • Rebuilt boardwalk on the Milky Way trail to lower archery
  • Two NEW overnight campsites
