Here are a few Camp CILCA Service Events that took place in 2006...
The LSA Decatur High School Leadership Council participated in a leadership training retreat/servant event at Camp CILCA on May 15 and 16, 2006. A stone retaining wall to inhibit erosion at the creek by the beach, as well as two dock sections for the swimming area, were purchased and put together during the retreat. Funding was provided by a Youth Leadership Grant from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
Jacob Midden completed his Eagle Scout Project by building a bridge with help from friends, relatives, and others from Troop002 over the past month. This bridge at the north end of the lake will help hikers cross over a small creek without the risk of soaking their shoes.
Twenty-two Junior High Youth and six adult leaders led by Deaconess Kim Bueltmann from St John Lutheran Church in Champaign spent 3 days this month at camp working on constructing the second half of a bouldering wall, built several 10' dock sections, cleared some trees and brush, and did some trail maintenance. Thanks guys for all your hard work and thanks to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for donating $1600 to cover the cost for the projects. Offerings from their school also went to purchase some kayaks which they enjoyed during their free time. Click on the photos above for a larger image.
Thirteen men from Trinity Lutheran Church, Peoria came and installed new built-in bunks for Cabin Martha, split and stacked firewood, cut and drilled decking boards for a bridge, and spread more woodchips in the challenge course area. Thanks a LOT guys and also thanks to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for providing over $500 in funding.
Youth and adults from Christ Lutheran-Delevan, St Luke-San Jose, Immanuel-Macomb, and others did a variety of projects including spreading a semi-load of woodchips, spitting wood, working on a shed, and rebuilding the steps on the main trail to the beach. Thanks a LOT guys and also thanks to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for providing over $2500 in funding. We've had other groups come out for work projects at camp.
