This project came to life as campers brought more and more friends to Family Camp. The Fort Family asked for more room. Traditionally, Fort’s cabins were mainly used for youth camps where 12 bunk beds made a lot of sense. Today, youth and high school camps primarily take place at Adventure Outpost and the Leadership Lab site. An idea was born: splitting a traditional cabin into two conjoined cabins and adding a bathroom so each space had its own private bath. This modification would allow two families to stay where traditionally only one would fit.
Next, many friends stepped up to pray, to give, and to volunteer.
God provided the financial resources through the Fort Family. God provided the staff and volunteers with just the right skillset. This demonstrates how God provides and allows Fort to grow while impacting lives for eternity.
