Our Goal for the Future
Long term planning to invest in Camp Crosley is underway. As a world class camping destination, Camp Crosley maintains quality programs and facilities to attract campers. Camp’s hilltop cabins, Lakeside Village and Dining Hall are all in need of renovation not only for aesthetic appeal but upgraded facilities would improve efficiency and provide a more inclusive environment.
Funding would address outdated cabins, bath house accessibility and ensure Camp Crosley provides an accessible and inclusive environment to all we serve.
Phase 1: Hilltop Cabins and Bath
The Hilltop cabins are outdated and inefficient. Funding would allow renovations to, improving aesthetic appeal, update the HVAC systems, and connection to the new sewage and septic system provided by the local municipalities as well as add an attached bath house.
Adding a bath house to the hilltop cabins provides close access, improved accessibility and more inclusivity for campers who may be dealing with body image and sexuality issues. Camp Crosley always strives to maintain an inclusive environment for all those we serve and adding a bath house to the cabins ensures all feel safe and secure while at Camp.
These cabins and new bath house serve a wide variety of ages and geographic area. During summer resident camp, youth ages 10 to 12 years old utilize the cabins. We serve kids not only from Delaware County, but all over the United States. During camp’s off season the cabins are used for groups and retreats.
Phase 2: Lakeside Cabins and Bath
Lakeside cabins were built alongside the Hilltop Cabins and hold the same needs. Renovating Lakeside cabins would includes improving aesthetic appeal, update HVAC systems, connection to the new sewage and septic system and an added bathhouse.
Phase 3: Dining Hall and Kitchen
The dining hall was built in the 1920’s and has remained the same with only minor equipment upgrades to meet the demand of serving an increasing number of campers. A renovated dining hall and kitchen would improve mealtime efficiency and allow for use of the space in off times for programs and activities.
Phase 4: Program Areas
To remain relevant, Camp Crosley must continually upgrade attractions and program spaces. From 2015 – 2016, the WhoaZone was added along with the pavilion, infirmary, and the welcome center. The final phase of this project will focus on renovating and updating the equestrian center, basketball and tennis courts, adding an arts and craft pavilion, renovating the nature center, upgrading the athletic field and making improvements to the North Teen Village.
