LPC Heritage Cash Flow Fund
Goal: Adding $30,000 before 2018
Current Status: $60,704.40 of $60,000 ultimate goal…Goal Reached!
A group of generous donors matched up to $15,000 of donations received before 2018 towards LPC’s Heritage Cash Flow Fund.
Essentially an interest-free line-of-credit, the Heritage Cash Flow Fund is designed to allow Lone Prairie Camp to draw from these restricted funds during the lean months and repay the account by late May of the following year.
Over the past few years we have raised $30,100 towards this fund and have consistently repaid that amount into our Savings Account by the late May deadline. This opportunity to double donations allows us to complete our goal of $60,000 in order to cover our seasonal cash-flow short-fall.
See the introductory LPC Board email for additional information.
Summer can be hot! As a way to help our campers stay cool our wish is to upgrade our cabin lights with energy-efficient ceiling fans.
House Dishwasher (Donation Received!)
The house dishwasher has been broken for several years. Please consider donating to this board-approved replacement as we seek to care for our staff.
The chapel has undergone many renovations since it was moved to our property in the 1960s including the recent kitchen reno, bootroom addition and new shingles. In order to keep the rain and snow away from our basement, it was now necessary to invest in new, wider eavestroughs. Contribute to protecting the many improvements we have made in recent years!
Fuel Tank (Donation Received!)
Our onsite gasoline fuel tank is corroding and therefore contaminating our fuel with rust. Consider helping us protect our road and lake vehicles by donating towards this item.
Boat Engine ($1,830.39 Received)
We have been excited to include tubing and skiing as part of our summer program activities. This is a fun way for the campers to bond as a cabin and explore a little adventure in a safe environment. The boat engine needed some major repairs this year to ensure that it was up and running for summer 2017 (unrelated to above fuel contamination issue). This is a big draw for families, but also a major expense.
Cost: We will expand as funds and labour allow
Lone Prairie Camp strives to provide an environment distinct from normal day-to-day experience and this extends to our program development. This year we would like to introduce an Adventure Playground which focuses on ‘loose parts’ that allow children to design their own play environment.
