Camp Marshall's St. Richard's Cabin Renovation Update: Progress and Opportunities for Volunteers

Greetings, Camp Marshall community! We are excited to share some wonderful news with you all. As summer approaches, the renovation of St. Richard's cabin, also known as the old Arts and Crafts Building, is well underway. It has been a remarkable journey so far, and we couldn't have come this far without the invaluable help of our volunteers. Today, we want to highlight the significant progress made this week and extend an invitation for more assistance.


A Big Week of Achievements:

This past week marked a significant milestone for the St. Richard's cabin project. On Tuesday, we accomplished two major tasks that brought us closer to completion. First, we successfully painted the walls and ceiling, instantly revitalizing the cabin's appearance. The fresh coat of paint breathed new life into the space, creating a more inviting and vibrant atmosphere. Today all of the electrical work, lights, outlets and outdoor lights were installed and the cabin is back to life.

I

n addition to the painting, we installed a mini-split heat pump. This addition will ensure that the cabin remains comfortable for campers during three seasons for up to 16 people, offering heating and cooling options as needed. The comfort and well-being of our youth campers are always a top priority, and this upgrade will greatly enhance their experience at Camp Marshall.


Future Steps:

While we celebrate the achievements of this week, we acknowledge that there is still work to be done before we can open the doors of St. Richard's cabin to our campers. The upcoming tasks include finishing the painting around the windows, adding trim to the ceiling, windows, and floor, and ultimately painting the floor itself. We are meticulously working towards creating a safe, welcoming, and aesthetically pleasing environment for the youth who will be staying in this cabin over the summer.


Volunteer Opportunities:

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the volunteers who have contributed their time and effort to this project. Your dedication and support have been invaluable, and we couldn't have made it this far without you. As we continue our journey towards completing the renovation, we are reaching out to our community once again.

If you have the time and willingness to help, we kindly request you to consider becoming one of our Thursday Volunteers. There are numerous projects around camp that require attention, and your involvement could make a tremendous difference. Whether you have skills in carpentry, painting, or simply a willingness to lend a hand, your contribution is essential.
