Help the Gnomes get back home to Camp Leif Ericson

$36,600 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 361 people in 5 months
Friends and Families of Camp Leif Ericson, 

Unfortunately, Camp was not spared from the recent historic flooding. We could use your help to ensure that our gnomes are able to return home and meet all the campers when they arrive to Camp Leif Ericson this summer.  Camp experienced some significant water damage to our activities and equipment and we want to make sure that Camp is at its best  for our campers.   Please consider donating in order help us in our recovery process.  

Sincerely, 
Your 2019 Camp Staff

Sadly, yesterday was a tough day. We received notification of a second impending flood and we were finally able to reach to the last two buildings, our Horse Tack Shed and Rock Climbing Shelter, at the Camp yesterday. Sadly our fears were confirmed. We store our riding saddles and helmets in the rafters to prevent against flood damage, but even that proved no match for this event. Our 23 riding saddles sustained significant damage. We are hoping to repair as many as possible, but many may need to be replaced. After some painstaking discussion, we are raising our Recovery Effort goal one last time to $40,000 to help with repairing replacing our Horse Tack and Rock Climbing Equipment. We are hopeful of reaching our goal even with an additional request as it will go a long way towards getting Camp ready by June 3. The support we have received has been amazing and we can't possibly thank everyone enough. This truly is a "place like no other"

As the water started to recede this morning, we were able to access a few of our building to check on damage. Sadly, the water rose higher than was expected and we lost than we could have imagined. As a result, we have increased the amount we are hoping to achieve to $25,000. We are so grateful for all of the support we have received and thank you in advance for any further support.
