Celebrating 25 Years at Edgewoods!
Your 2019 Christmas Campaign gift will honour the legacy of Boys Camp as we build a better facility to serve the next generation of campers! For 25 summers, our Edgewoods facility has been home to Boys Camp. Time flies when you’re having so much fun!
Boys Camp has a special place in the lives of so many Camp families. We need your help to keep it strong for years to come! The 2019 Christmas Campaign is focused on supporting two critically important areas at Boys Camp that will allow us to impact more children and young people at Mini-Yo-We.
Upgrade the Boys Camp Waterfront!
The waterfront has always been a core part of the campers’ experience at Camp Mini-Yo-We. Your gift will enable us to continue a multi-year project to redo all of our waterfronts to make them more fun and safe.
- A new “A-configuration” will allow campers to sit on all four sides of the dock for the infamous weekly Belly Flop King Competition!
- The layout will improve our lifeguards’ ability to better see the entire swimming area, thereby increasing camper safety.Our current docks are beyond their operational effectiveness.
- This new system is easier to install and remove, which will save valuable time for our staff during our critical spring and fall seasons.
Brand New Washrooms & Renovation!
Your gift will enable us to build a completely new washroom at Boys Camp as well as renovate the large main washroom at this site. We are in the midst of a multi-year campaign to renovate all of our washrooms. Your gift to the Christmas Campaign will be combined with other donors to us significantly upgrade these spaces for next summer!
- Easy to clean surfaces to make it easier for our cleaning teams
- Up to date with the latest accessibility requirements
- Separate sides for campers and staff
- Reduce our environmental impact with low flush toilets and more
