We've had a busy week here, at Camp Daniel. A small group from Silver Birch Ranch were here for a work day yesterday. In the pic above, you can see that they're grouting the tile in the Jack Pine Cabin bath. Yes, that means that the one bath is done being tiled. The guys, Tim, Marceaux and Karol put in many hours getting that tile done. The pic above shows the shower area. You'll notice that the tile is different than the rest of the bath in that it's all 12" tiles. This is because we want less grout to have to keep clean in the shower area. The rest of the bath has 2" tiles under the large border. The 2" tile was donated, so we're using it until it runs out. It's more time consuming than the 12", but it's good tile, and more importantly; free! There's also very little waste with the smaller tiles; and they're quite easy to cut around pipes, outlets, etc.
Jen and Molly helped move the dorm project along by applying poly to the trim that still needs to be installed in the dorms and baths. Two coats each! Jen was happy that the weather permitted her to do much of it outside. (Less toxic fumes)
The Silver Birch group also put together and sanded the 6 bunkbeds that were delivered (in pieces) a couple of weeks ago. Or was that last week? Time's getting away from me!
Yesterday, Tony and Karol gave a tour of the grounds to a group from the Presbyterian Church in Lakewood. Longtime friend of Camp Daniel, Johanna Axelrod (Julia's mom) set up the tour with this, the church that she attends. Tony was able to share about the beginnings of Camp Daniel, where we are now, and where we are headed. I think that the visitors were all blessed by the visit.
Aside from tiling, Marceaux has been busy this past week working on Molly's car and Karol's golf cart. The golf cart had a major injury last fall that required the entire engine to come out, plus the metal box on the back was cracking. We're blessed to have Matt Mandich help us out with both of these problems. Hopefully the golf cart will be zipping around the grounds in the next week or so. Marceaux has also been working on Mega's Micro Bus. It's been in the shop getting road ready, but he had to make sure that everything was road ready for Steve Hays to use this summer.
Tony has been organizing the speakers for the summer. It's a lot to organize with everyone's schedule when we have four weeks of morning and evening speakers to fill. Like so many things, when one thing changes, there's a domino effect.
Have I mentioned? work days: this Saturday, April 30, May 14 and May 21. Let us know which one you'll be attending!
