Help from Castlegar Rotary

Once again the Castlegar Rotarians have come through with a generous donation for Camp Koolaree. At their regular meeting on January 21 this year, club president, Stan Hadikin, officially presented a beautiful set of battery-powered tools to Ray Lundquist and Bill Furey, members of the camp’s board of directors. Bill, a Rotarian himself, was instrumental in getting this gift. He also presented a PowerPoint of Camp Koolaree photos showing the work done over the past couple of years to replace the floor and to install a nice solar power system for the Brick Shed.
The Ridgid 18 volt lithium-ion toolset includes; 7 ¼ in. circular saw, reciprocating saw, impact driver, 2-speed hammer drill, battery charger, two 4 Ah batteries, and a large carrying bag.
Many thanks to the Rotary club as this new equipment should prove very handy around the camp and in the newly renovated solar powered Brick Shed.

😔 Overnight Summer Camps Cancelled

First off, we just want to say thank you for your patience.  We know it hasn’t been easy during this time of uncertainty. 
The BC Camp Association has announced that we can not run our regular overnight camps in 2020. 
This of course is devastating to us as this will be the first summer since the early 70’s that we have not run programming at Koolaree. 
However, we are hoping to offer you a different kind of programming this year. For this reason, we would like to ask you to fill out this pre-registration form to let us know if you are interested in sending your child to a day camp.  
This pre-registration will allow us to plan accordingly based on the number of campers interested and in which locations.  We will not be able to offer these day camps at Camp Koolaree as we cannot safely transport that many people back and forth twice per day.
Please note that day camps will be by donation only.  This link will be live until June 3rd.  After that, we will finalize our plans and send out a formal registration link. 
Thank you again and we hope to see some of you this summer!
