Mary's Lodge at Camp Howard

Dear Friend of CYO/Camp Howard:

On behalf of thousands of youth who will enjoy life-lasting memories at Camp Howard, I want to make you aware of plans to construct a new Lodge/Dining Hall and to ask for your help by giving to our ‘Go Fund Me’ page. Please review the below photos of our illustrations of the new Lodge/Dining Hall that will be built. This is a critically needed facility that will make a great experience for youth even better and enable us to more than double our service capacity. I really need your help. Please say ‘yes’ to this Go Fund Me appeal and forward it to friends in your network. Every gift, large and small, is needed.

With gratitude,

Sister Krista von Borstel, SSMO
Executive Director

Camp Howard is planning a new multi-use Lodge/Dining Hall with majestic views of Mt. Hood and Bull Run Reservoir that will be used for dining, games, arts and crafts, dances, and Outdoor School class.

The Camp Howard solution is to construct a new 7,580 s.f. Lodge/Dining Hall that will increase weekly service capacity from 200 to 540 campers. Our goal is to break ground by October 1 and be completed by summer 2018.

The cost of the project is $4.1 million. Nearly $3.5 million has already been received in gifts and pledges.

Please help create life-lasting memories for youth, ages 6 – 17, who will benefit from this new facility.

We are inviting you to help us move $100,000 closer to our goal by making a gift to the Go Fund Me appeal for Camp Howard.

Donations are tax-deductible. Camp Howard will send you a donation thank you letter for your tax records.
