Waterfront Remodel - More details and updates to come.
New Ropes Course - The Spring of 2017 Windy Gap will be adding a new Aerial Adventure challenge course to the property. This will take the place of our current outdated course, and will be moved to a new area in which it will be incorporated with the current climbing tower. The new course will address many factors that the previous course has no longer been able to fulfill. The increased level of safety will be one of the largest and most important upgrades. With a new belay system in place campers will be secured safely to the course at all times, no longer requiring manual transitions from element to element to be performed by the camper. The new course will also upgrade the camper experience in a number of ways. Upgraded high adventure elements, improvement in efficency, better camper-leader experience, improved freedom of choice for the participant, and thrilling course exit options are just a handful of the changes that will arrive this Spring. We are excited this Summer to watch campers experience this new cabin ride as they push the limits through challenge and courage.
After construction is complete, Young Life camps are financially self-sufficient. All operational expenses, maintenance, administrative costs and funded depreciation are paid from camp revenue generated by the camper fee. Only major capital projects require fundraising after the initial purchase or construction.
We only grow as thoughtful and generous gifts allow... Young Life camps have a long-standing policy to first raise the funds and then to develop new projects, facilities and amenities. This is so the camp fee that summer and school season guests pay is minimized to reflect true operating costs. This practice also allows us to develop new projects to a standard of excellence.
