Lakeside Lodge

Donate to the Lakeside Lodge project

We have replaced cabins 7 and 8 and are moving on to the next step to complete 2 more cabin rooms, a common area, bathrooms and a winterized kitchen all in one building.  This will replace the existing Lakeside cabins 5,6,7,8 and the old shower house. The building will be winterized and will upgrade this side of camp to be able to better accommodate our campers and guests, especially adult groups and fall retreats. It will also allow us to better serve multiple groups at one time with separate kitchen and meeting spaces. Your donation will help to bring this upgrade to full completion (demolition of old buildings and site prep, upgrade the septic to accommodate the upgrades, construction of structure, furnishing and finishing of the building interior and equipment, and landscaping to make this area accessible and enjoyable.

Where are we at now? The exterior of the building, cabin spaces, and meeting room are complete. The bathrooms are in progress-floors are complete and walls are being tiled. Once this is finished the toilets and sinks will be installed and ready to use. The septic and water systems are set to be completed before the end of the year. The kitchen, fireplace and landscaping are the final pieces to finish in the first half of the new year. You can stay up to date on progress through our facebook page and monthly e-newsletter (sign up below).

Why is this important? We believe that this is a critical step at just the right timing. The mission of camp is to lead people to Christ and become lifelong followers of him. We believe that this project is where God is leading us in order to continue to have the space to do that well. It also opens the door for ministry expansion, a key piece in sustainable ministry for CPBC.

Due to some unforseen needs and fluctuatiing construction costs throughout the project, we have concluded that we are about $60,000 away from finishing the building. Our hope is to have this building completely up and running in the early part of 2021, but we need your help to complete the funding so we can keep moving forward. ALL DONATIONS GIVEN BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR 2020 WILL BE MATCHED UP TO THE $60,000 GOAL. We are overwhelmed by the genrousity of so many giving toward the completion of this project. We hope you'll consider partnering with us in this movement to enhance the space for "friend to meet friend and both to meet God."
