The flood brought ravaging waters through our buildings and left much in its wake including damages totaling more than $450,000. Thankfully due to the volunteer actions 6f many, your donations and our insurance, we were able to piece the camp back together in time for the rest of the camping season. This included major repairs to Girls Cabin #1, replacing the footbridge, fencing, refrigeration units, mattresses and more. While we were able to open the camp again, our aging pool sustained damages that continued to deteriorate it.

Money rai~:~ple in Summers Covnty with breast cancer get a diagnosis and/or treatment financial aid. our pool does not meet the ADA or ANSI/INSPI safety requirements. We have been advised that the best way to deal with these multiple issues is to build a new pool. At this time, we anticipate the cost of a new pool facility to be $250,000. Thanks to FEMA and some generous donors, we have been able to raise 75% of the funds needed; however, we will still need to raise $60,000 quickly to have the pool ready by spring. That's why I'm writing today. As you probably are aware, our beautiful, historic camp is the property of Summers County and managed on a very tight budget. We will need to raise the final needed funds or else enter debt service for a loan, which we simply cannot afford. While the camp has endured some dark days during and after the horrific flood, the life lessons and leadership skills that make up the programming at Camp Summers were not lost. Out of the darkness many happy times have followed and our campers have made memories that a flood cannot erase! We know many of you have experienced the light Camp Summers brings. Whether at church camp, band camp, reunions, or 4-H camp, Camp Summers is a place near and dear to all of us. Several of you gave your time and your donations when we reopened in 2016, and for that we'll always be grateful. It's our hope to carry that momentum forward and finish the flood damage repairs with a new pool that all can enjoy. I hope you will share this letter with anyone you think may be interested in helping us raise funds for our pool! Thank you so much for all you have done to support our camp!
