Thanks for the Support!

Many community groups assist Killoqua throughout the year. This month, we'd like to thank Fluke Corporation and REI!

On September 12, dozens of Fluke volunteers came to camp for the annual United Way Day of Caring. The Fluke crew worked hard and got a lot done. Projects this year included taking down tents from summer camp units, rebuilding and restocking firewood boxes, washing windows, and clearing brush along the meadow to reclaim the volleyball court. We're looking forward to using the new court when it's completed in 2009!

REI also assisted with a generous donation of gear to use throughout the year. September's donation included bikes, helmets and supplies; climbing ropes, helmets and hardware; compasses; ice cream-making balls (add ingredients and ice and roll around); and PFDs (life jackets) and canoe paddles. Pearl, Joanna and Cassie model the new arrivals. You'll see all the items in use around camp soon.
We appreciate Fluke, REI and all the other organizations that contribute to Killoqua throughout the year!
