Clean Up , Clean Up !

Sunday, May 17th saw 60 people at Camp Ne-O-Tez! We started our morning with a time of worship and then got to work cleaning everything from cabins, creek, bathhouses, pine lodge, castle and more! We are just about ready for camp . . .

Steve tearing out the "rotten" timbers and grading in front of Pine Lodge. Kay working on getting those kitchen windows to shine!
Working on taking rock from the creek to shore up the bank by the campfire circle.

Still looking good after a hard day of cleaning . . Lindsay, Karen, DiAnn and Amber!
Thanks to the Maryland Heights congregation and special friends of camp for being there and getting so much amazing work done!

The Long and Winding Road . . . .

Thanks to Chuck Pudiwitr and his company Apex Construction for seeing the need to fix the camp entrance road and coordinating this project. We had experienced severe washout and the right side of the road was badly broken. They replaced a 12" drain pipe with a 30" pipe to help with water runoff and then repaired the road. Thanks - it is volunteers like this that make it possible for Camp Ne-O-Tez to continue their mission of "Training Youth to Walk with Christ"! The guy with the shovel is Chuck's son Jared.

Newly repaired road - thank you!

The Rain's Came Down ! ! !

From Bill Moody:

Good news thank God. Know some of you have been wondering
and other than a small amount of gravel road damage & a couple
of trees on the Point trail, all is OK. Major rain but no severe winds.
Check out the picture Crystal Falls and the other picture is creek by caretaker's home.

Staff Training

We had a great turnout for staff training. Over 75 kids came for the afternoon together. We shared lunch, attended classes, voted for the 2009 t-shirt and role played. Thanks to everyone who attended. A special thanks to Dave for organizing.

Thanks JD for grilling the burgers, dogs and brats for us!
