Multi-Purpose Building remodeling project begins

The Camp Courageous Multi-Purpose Building is used for indoor camper activities and as a staff dormitory.  It was built in 1978 and is now in need of remodeling. As the camp has grown, so has the this building. which started as a small gym with a storage area. With the help of many volunteers in the early 80s, half of the second floor was made into a female dormitory and storage area. Later in the 80s the upstairs area was made into 100% dormitory space to meet the need for growing staff for both males and females.

With the building of the Beckwith Dormitory this past year, the year-round staff were moved out of the Multi-Purpose Building dorm.  The Multi rooms became an area reserved for volunteers and/or summer staff.  After 30-years, the Multi-Purpose Building is ready for a major overhaul.  This winter, Americorp volunteers and others will be starting this project.

A special thank you to Don & Nancy Zeeman and their dear friends at Kohler, we have the plumbing fixtures donated.
