Support the Board of Visitors
And ENsure Camp Mitchell remains Healthy and vital for future generations.
Who are the Board of Visitors?
The Camp Mitchell Board of Visitors is a group that works to support Camp Mitchell. We meet once a year on a weekend in November to celebrate all that we love about Camp Mitchell. During that weekend we work to raise money for special improvements for the camp and talk about ways to volunteer at camp.
In 2013, our inaugural year, we raised $26,000 to pave the road from the entrance of camp to Hoke cabin — great improvement and accomplishment! Then in 2014, we were asked to raise money to build an events’ deck on the backside of Canterbury Lodge. One special donor pledged $30,000 for this project. Another request was to also start updating Canterbury Lodge and we raised $21,000 toward that project. In 2015 we raised $22,811 to continue the remodeling of Canterbury’s front entrance, a bedroom, and a handicap bathroom. In 2016 we raised money to sustain Camp Mitchell’s Farm Project and bought two golf carts. In 2017 we raised money to renovate the kitchen in Keller Hall.
