With a little help from our friends…

We have set aside 4 days from August 21–24, but are hoping to get enough volunteers to get it all done by Sunday Evening.

We will need 6-8 volunteers to help with building, and someone to help cook the following meals:

                                Friday – Supper only

                                Saturday- Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper

                                Sunday- Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper

                                Monday – Breakfast and lunch

We have enough cabins and beds to accommodate those that want to overnight and reduce travel times.

Please email registrar.campkoolaree@gmail.com if you are able to help out!


Our Board of Directors

     Our board met July 26 at the camp to see the progress on the new wash house! We were all social distancing and it was strange to not welcome each other with hugs as all of our meetings have been via zoom since March. The camp looks a little different but we are so excited to share our finished bathrooms when campers return next summer!! ❤️❤️

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.
