The camp has a large summer camping program for youth as well as a family camping program. During the balance of the year the camp serves the needs of retreat goers of all ages. In order to better serve this population, the camp is engage in a three year fund raising program. St. Paul’s church council has pledged to raise $1,000 during this year drive. Of course, it is hoped that more will be raised. The council encourages you to make an offering each of the three years toward camp improvements. Please indicate Calumet on your check.
