Replacing the Dorm
We all love Gander Brook. There’s no place better in the summer than to be among fellow Christians in the midst of God’s great, natural creation in Maine. But one of our great old buildings, the dorm, is in need of some major love.
The cost of the dorm is $535,000. Thanks to the many generous donations from those who love Gander Brook, our first round of fundraising raised $340,000! However, this still leaves about $200,000 dollars which is needed to begin construction. This is a big challenge; but we’re confident that through your help—Gander Brook’s many friends, both in New England and out—we can raise the money to keep an essential piece of the camp serving workers, and churches for years to come.
As many Gander Brookers know, although we all have tons of fond memories connected with the old dorm (70 years worth), the old building is in bad shape and has been in need of replacement for some time. The Gander Brook board has consulted with builders, donors, Gander Brookers, regulators, and more to put together the current plan. The replacement for the old dorm will include a small apartment for a caretaker, winterized and heated rooms for use in the winter, a great room for gatherings, greatly upgraded bathroom facilities, and a bit more privacy and sound-proofing between rooms.
Please consider a donation to Gander Brook Christian Camp earmarked for the New Dorm.
Would you please partner us to extend Gander Brook’s seasons of service to the youth and churches of New England ? Would you be willing to make a one time contribution?
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
- You can donate whatever you would like to contribute toward this winterized building—generosity is appreciated!
- You can spread the word to former Gander Brookers that we don’t have addresses for through mail, email, Facebook, or whatever other social media you’re plugged into. A brochure with attached pledge card is here.
- Perhaps your congregation would like to make a contribution toward this important New England project.
- Donate to and/or share our GoFundMe campaign. Even if you cannot donate sharing this to others in the community is helpful in spreading the word and generating interest.
