The Homestead Renovation

The Homestead dates back to 1949 and was the first Camp Homewood building to be built at the main Harbour camp. In other words, it’s OLD! Over the years several additions and improvements have been made to the Homestead and it is an important asset for housing summer staff.

Platform Tents & Mattress Replacement

Tents have played a central role in our programs since 1948. Every summer up to 120 campers call a tent their home for a week at Harbour or Woodsman. Sleeping ‘outside’ in a tent allows children to hear the birds and experience the wind or rain in a new way. Canvas helps foster a closer connection with God’s creation. Unfortunately, our platforms are rotting, and our tents are breaking down from sun, rot or mildew and all need replacing.
On top of that, our mattresses have been heavily used for decades. They were thin to begin with, but they have broken down and no longer provide much in the way of comfort. They don’t just look worn and ragged – they are! And those are our good ones… the Woodsman mattresses are truest horrible!
