Save The Homestead – The Homestead is a huge part of the Homewood story, and it has served the mission for over 70 years. In the early years, it was home to Alf & Margaret Bayne and to Russ & Helen Swanson. Prior to the construction of Rivendell, it was Homewood’s main lodge and kitchen. Since 1970, the Homestead has been home to generations of CITs, Summer Staff, and guests. This spring we rebuilt the dormers, and thanks to a $50,000 FireSmart grant, we installed a new steel roof. Donated windows were installed by Joel Loeve.
In order to restore the building and make it usable for the next 70 years, major work is required on the second story. Volunteers have gutted the upstairs (the inexpensive phase of the project!), and now it is time to start putting it all back together: wiring, spray foam insulation, drywall, tongue and groove pine on the ceiling, flooring, trim, and paint. This is a time sensitive project– the Homestead must be completed prior to April 1, 2023 so that we can use it to house volunteers next spring!
We need $60,000 to complete the project. Camp has a strict no debt policy – projects can only move ahead when we have cash in hand. Please give today!
