What year was this?

Kristen!!

This past weekend we had an awesome volunteer crew. We started out by having a pool painting party. We were able to get the tree cabins cleaned. We removed the rotted roof from Beech and start to stain the ceiling planks. Work continued at the nurses cabin from the Redeemer of DeWitt team. We also cleaned up branches around camp. It’s always enjoyable to see how many have a passion for Wesley Woods. Thank you for all that you do. If you have a group or if you want to come and volunteer we will always have something for you to do.

*Wednesday, October 14 @ around 2 pm we are touching up the pool and painting arrows and lines. If you would like to come and help we will be at the pool!

I don't think the pool had gotten a paint job since before I was a camper! So excited to see camp get a face-lift

Gosh that pool. I miss being young. 😞
