Gander Brook Christian Camp faces obstacles to replace near century-old dorm
Linda King describes Gander Brook Christian Camp as a unifier…
We shared the bad news back in November:
Gander Brook Christian Camp in Raymond, Maine, desperately needs donations to make it through the winter.
Now, here’s the good news, via Don Keiser, a Gander Brook board member who edits the camp’s newsletter:
“Due to the recent appeal in The Christian Chronicle, Gander Brook Christian Camp, located in Raymond, Maine, has received sufficient funds to carry us through the winter months. This means that at our upcoming board meeting, we can concentrate on discussion and decisions which will improve the camping and spiritual enrichment experience of campers this summer, without having to allocate funds back to old bills. We can continue to positively impact the lives of our young people and adults, and ultimately the church in the Northeast. We extend our sincere thanks to the Chronicle and to the many generous contributors across the country.”
Keiser, minister of the Southern Aroostook Church of Christ in northern Maine, said that the camp needed more than $6,000 in donations and exceeded that amount.
In 2008, I wrote a feature on Gander Brook and its role as a place of refuge and fellowship for Christians in New England.
