|Camp Harkness Update Monday, April 29th…
The beach clean up at Camp Harkness is nearly complete. We are hoping to have the paving started under pavilion #1 today. Five dumpsters of “stuff” that washed in during Supers Storm Sandy were removed from the beach. We have included a couple of photos of the beach clean up, to show you how much sand removal has been accomplished. These pictures were taken on Thursday, April 25th. Pictures
A “Clean up and Planting day” is scheduled for Saturday, May 18th from 9:00AM – 12:00PM – if interested in volunteering, please call the Camp Harkness office at 860-443-7818. On May 18th, if the weather is questionable, please call the camp office – we will update the message to let you know if the activities for the day are still on.
An update on the brown cabins – the expansion work will start after the camps close in August – we are hoping to have construction under way in mid-September.
