Camp News: March 2018


Phase II of Her Vision of Tomorrow
We’re laying the ground work for Phase II of Her Vision of Tomorrow! Before we can start building there is a lot of planning work that needs to be accomplishment. Our Outdoor Program and Properties staff have been on site visits at Camp Wildwood, Camp Wai Lani and Camp Indian Echo to find the perfect spots to build the new sleeping units. In addition, we’re surveying the area to prepare the land for infrastructure needs such as electric, sewer, water and septic. The architectural designs of the new sleep units are in development. We are making sure the designs incorporate feedback from our girl visioning sessions, meet ADA requirements and above all else work within our budget. 

Challenge Course Updates
The new challenge course at Camp Wai Lani is in the final stages before we open up registration for members. Construction is complete, permits are approved. We are finalizing facilitator trainings to ensure everyone has a safe and fun time on the course.

The challenge course at Camp Dorothy Thomas has been going under a little refresher renovation. This update has extended the zip line to be nearly 800 ft. That means CDT will be home to one of the longest zip lines in Hillsborough County. Where are all our risk-takers? Who’s ready to try this?

CDT Ranger House 
Over the next couple of months, Cardel Homes will begin preparing the site for our new ranger house at Camp Dorothy Thomas which will include clearing the site and demolishing the existing house.
