Camp Lebanon News – March 2019

A quick March update, including news about the "driveway glacier" and new prayer & praise items!

There’s simply no stopping the “funnest fun!” at Camp Lebanon. Thanks for wrapping your camp in a warm blanket of prayers. Don’t stop now! We’re in the middle of four March Quilt & Scrap sessions (425 women!). Talk about generating heat…and excitement! Oh, by the way, summer registration opened on January 16! At last look, over 400 had already registered. Seen any robins yet?

Lots of Snow, No Glacier!

After years of fighting the driveway glacier that tormented guests and staff each late winter (see photo below), a fix has been found! With springs oozing out of the hillsides, the challenge was to prevent the layering of freezing water as it flowed over the road. Last fall, Chris Mock, Facilities Manager, and crew installed an ingenius system of 200’ of pvc piping and electrical tape to keep the water running through the ditches and culverts. The $15,000 project looks to be a long-term solution. So, instead of fighting glaciers, maintenance was free to move mountains of snow. Fun!
