The hearts of these staff and volunteers shine brightly as they serve. Their collective efforts contribute greatly to the smooth operation of the camp, showcasing their love for God and their dedication to serving Him and you, our valued campers.
We want to ensure these special servants have a comfortable and restful place to rejuvenate after a day of joyful service. The new Summer Staff & Volunteer Housing provides this needed space. It offers 42 beds (4 beds in private suites), restrooms, a central hang-out space, and a back porch style deck with a hammock village.
This 5,350-square-foot building, located behind the RV campsites, is essential, as the current housing – the Jay Lodge – is beyond reasonable repair and significantly undersized for Fort’s current and future needs.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of Fort Friends and family campers from the summer of 2022, this construction project has been made possible. The project was fully funded, keeping with Fort’s policy to fund the project before you build.
