Our Next Construction Project – The Anna Watson Blair Health Center!

The Anna Watson Blair Health Center is almost a reality! We broke ground for the Center at Festival of Friends on August 12, 2018. Click here to see all the photos from this special event.

This much-needed facility will allow us to better care for our campers and guests and replace the current 60+ year old facility.

We are closing in our financial goal needed to begin construction.
