Camp George Capital Expenditures

Camp George Capital Expenditures
Camper Cabins and Staff Lounge
March 21, 2005 

Camp George is requesting authorization to spend $400,244 (Canadian) in order to construct five (5) new camper cabins and renovate an existing cottage into a staff lounge/meeting room.  The new camper cabins will allow campers to be moved from existing dormitory housing into more appropriate accommodations.  Concurrently with this expenditure, the current dormitory will be converted (at no expense) into needed indoor program space. 

This request is being made now so construction can immediately commence in order to have this new space available prior to the 2005 camp summer opening.

To date, $338,000 is already in hand.  A commitment has been made for an additional $100,000 (from the Camp George Committee Chair and principal donor) to be received by the Union prior to the last expenditure for this project.
