Property Enhancement Updates at Camp

CBT ShowerhouseA relatively rain-free summer has meant good progress on our Camp Birch Trails shower house. The floors have been poured and the exterior walls are up. We are still on track for the substantial completion date of September 15 with the final completion date slated for September 24.
The Pow Low shower house permit has been approved and work on it plus the troop house remodel is scheduled to begin early August. Our architect and engineer continue to work with the health department to make a few small changes to the kitchen remodel and we expect the permits for the troop house remodel to be approved shortly. The substantial completion date is still scheduled for October 15, 2014. The final completion date is October 29, 2014.

Updates on the progress of both projects may be found in our Connect volunteer e-newsletter and on our Volunteer Connect website. Questions about the projects or timing should be directed to
