This week Camp Howe has been senselessly vandalized. Buildings broken into, things broken, valuables left out in the weather, fire extinguishers left off and taken. The worst of the damage is the main garage doors in our newest building. Not only were have they been damaged but all electrical wires cut and the mounted controls stolen. We have had many folks assisting us in clean up and repairs but are holding our breath to determine the overall costs of this week. We do know that each fire extinguisher will cost around $500.00 alone.
The police with the forensic unit have gathered evidence from all effected areas and we are hoping the person is caught.
Many kind folks have asked where donations can be made so this gofund page has been set up to assist in ensuring we can continue to be a camp for all youth! Any funds beyond the actual cost (in any) will be put into the facility.
We thank you in advance.
