Like trees we were

“And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” (Psalms 1:3 KJV)

This was our theme for Spring Cleaning Weekend 2013.  Like trees we were, and everything our 40+ volunteers helped with prospered! A big, giant THANK YOU to everyone who so generously gave to camp in this way.

Not only did we set out the teepees, the docks, put up window screens, got cabins prepped and all the other essentials,  there were also some pretty exciting improvements to camp that happened thanks to these helpers – including a newly blazed trail to Birch Spring Cabin, a new Camp Office sign and mailbox, and…


New hay-trailer sides!


A new gaga pit!


A newly re-furnished Staff Lounge!
(THANK YOU to everyone who donated furniture, games and other items! We are 90% done- still looking for an air conditioner and some more non-perishable food donations)











The community of alumni, staff, campers and friends of Crystal Lake is truly amazing.  You all contribute to this place we call our 2nd home by your hard work, your donations, your time, your love, your prayers and your enthusiasm.  Thank you!
