Summer Needs and Retreat Center Update!

April 30, 2024

Ach, ja.  Unfortunate news, folks.  The Retreat Center HVAC project will not be finished by the start of the summer.  There have been unexpected discoveries that have extended the time line for completion.  The Facilities Committee and Camp Mennoscah board are reviewing the next steps.  Camp Mennoscah staff will be in communication with groups with Retreat Center reservations.  Work will continue on the project with a brief hiatus to get campgrounds and the pool ready for Summer Youth Camps.  Please keep the board, camp staff and the project in your prayers.  Questions can be directed to olivia.bartel@campmennoscah.org or call 620-297-3290.
