Let’s Grow Camp Capital Campaign
With facilities overpopulated for current capacity and continued demand, this is the right time to make this incredible project a reality. The driving force behind this expansion is mission focused on our belief that every child who wants a camp experience should have the opportunity.
YMCA camps are the highest impact youth programs in the national Y system due to their focus on the healthy development of young people in 3 core areas; achievement, belonging, and relationships.
The following improvements are planned to take place over the next several years:
Currently we manage our own waste which limits the camp’s capacity. After completing this project Camp Weaver can increase capacity, reduce monthly costs and reduce maintenance work hours. In Progress
Dining Hall Extension
Building an extension on to the Herman Hall that will result in increasing camp capacity and increasing conference capacity. In Progress
Adding new cabins in a different location at camp to increase capacity by 144 overnight campers and provide additional rental group space. Currently secured funding for 2 new cabins, increasing capacity by 48. In Progress
We plan on creating a building dedicated to our Leader in Training and Counselor in Training programs. We plan on building a center that houses 24 campers, 4 staff, a large communal learning area, kitchen and bathrooms. This building will also present new rental opportunities in our off-season for conferences and retreats.
Essential renovation as capacity increases. Adds additional living space for camp nurse as well as improved treatment space.
Essential construction as capacity increases. Will increase storage space for store items as well as increased storage space for lost and found items.
Day Camp Infrastructure
We plan to create purpose built spaces for Day Campers such as fire circles, shelters and activity areas.
“Camp Weaver is a unique opportunity to invest in a project that leaves you feeling good at the end of the day because you know you’ve had a positive impact on these kid’s lives. They are our customers, and they come first. We want to get all the children here, as diverse a group as possible. And we want them to have the same unforgettable, life-changing, happy experience that my father had as a young boy at Camp Herman.”
