Adopt a Cabin
We are so grateful for the individuals and groups who have made the commitment to adopt a room in our retreat center, a cabin or another building at the camp. Groups can choose to provide both the materials and labor or to provide the volunteers when the materials are provided.
It’s very encouraging to us when people get involved with Red Willow in this way. It allows the camp to keep improving the facilities and ensures that the camp will continue to impact lives for years to come.
Having that level of involvement in the future of Red Willow Ministries is very encouraging, and allows the camp to keep improving the facilities, not just maintain what is here.
“Up for Adoption” List
These cabins and program buildings are up for “adoption.” Details, photos and estimates of time and money involved are available upon request. Please contact our office for more information.
Former Boys’ Bath House (“The Bunker”)
One of the challenges of modern day Outdoor Ministry is re-purposing old buildings. At Red Willow Bible Camp, a decommissioned boy’s bathhouse has been partially remodeled into housing for the young men who work at the camp in the summer.
A fundraiser was held to pay for needed upgrades, including a new steel roof, new windows, and adding patio doors to a small deck. The fixtures were all demolished and interior cleared out. The large portion of the old bathhouse is now being used for sleeping/living quarters for support staff. The small former staff bathroom is now used as storage for camping and environmental education equipment. The former utility room is also used for storage.
Volunteers are needed to complete the work that has been started:
- Finish painting interior concrete block walls.
- Finish deck/add railings
- Install storage for staff
- Install storage for backpacks and other equipment
- Clean out Utility Room
- Landscape and add new steps from lower level to upper level.
- Safety railing around sidewalk
- Trim trees around the building
- Remove water fountain
Professional services needed:
- Complete electrical work and install lights
- Possible electric baseboard heat
