'Upon This Firm Foundation' Capital Campaign Work Begins!

The first project of the 'Upon This Firm Foundation' Capital Campaign, the replacement of the water and electricity lines in the Family Campground, was completed in May. The project was done by Kish Electric of Belleville. The second projects, renovating the old shop building into the new office will begin in Febuary 2019.

On Wednesdays in the spring, summer and fall, volunteers are invited to come to camp. Projects for this spring include the renovation of the new office, and adding an open air storage bay onto the Maintenance Building. If you have a crew that can come on a Wednesday, call (814) 667-2355 or contact CBD. Lunch is provided! Get here early enough and we’ll find you some breakfast too!  

April 6th is Spring Work Day at Camp Blue Diamond. The day begins with a pancake breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Followed by work projects beginning at 8 a.m. Jobs include cutting and splitting wood, cleaning, raking, staining buildings and carpentry jobs. Lunch will be served at noon, and we'll work until 3 p.m. Jr. High and Youth Groups are welcome, but an adult supervisor needs to accompany the group. Please contact camp and let us know how many are in your work crew, and what job(s) you would like to do. If you have a chain saw, splitter or pick-up bring it along!

We appreciate our volunteers and the projects they accomplished in 2018. Projects included hanging doors, renovating the back porch of the Ouch House, putting siding on Bearview and helping with the campground project.
