Camp Oliver Potable Water Tank
Camp Oliver is located in Descanso, California in the Cleveland National Forest at an elevation of 3,450 feet.
Camp Oliver, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization , we are located in the East County of San Diego County and determined high fire area. Currently the present Water Tank was installed in 1988, so it is 33 years old and leaking . The Water Tank holds 31,000 gallons of potable drinking water. It also meets our community's needs by providing assistance to Cal Fire Station #45, where fire fighters come and take water if needed to fight the fires for the town of Descanso and surrounding areas. At present the water tank works on gravity fed and saves wear and tear on water system and helps with water pressure in the community of Descanso.
Camp Oliver is a summer camp during the summer for children of all walks of life, in the San Diego County, LA area , Arizona and Mexico. Camp Oliver provides a safe caring environment for all children and youth and adults so they can appreciate and value themselves, others and the natural world around them. Summer camp 2018 is not in session at present, but will be in session 2019, we are refocusing on rebuilding our infrastructure. Camp Oliver meets our community needs, by providing facilities for educational, recreational and cultural retreats for many user groups.
The total cost for replacement was $63,000 . We met half way and the San Diego Board of Supervisors matched the remainder of the funding. Supervisor Dianne Jacob, District 2.
Now in order to get it here we need additional 10,000 our goal by September, October time frame for 2019 year camp.
Installing the new tank, at Camp Oliver which serves 300 to 1500 participants per year as well as the community of Descanso with a estimate of 1500 residents. This would be a huge safety issue and would relieve many residents minds knowing their fire department has access to water in case of an emergency.
Camp Oliver would be ever so grateful for any funds we can raise through this venue. Camp Oliver was built in 1954. The photo shown is a picture of the new Water Tank that will be installed to replace the old one.
