Getting Started...

The first thing Camp Ledgewood needed to begin Master Plan construction is a new water system.  Now underway is a water system upgrade.

The entire water system is being redesigned, not only to bring water to the new facilities that will be constructed, but to improve service to the existing areas. This means installation of pipes, water treatment plant, and fire suppression systems.

The Big Picture - New Construction

Over 2017 and 2018, there is a lot going on at Camp Ledgewood.

During 2017, campers can look forward to the completion of a new Conestoga Wagon unit, named Prairie Point and a site with 8 troop cabins and one large unit house to support the troops, which we are temporarily referring to as "Outpost." "Outpost" will receive its official site name by a membership vote to be held in Summer 2017.

In 2018, ground breaking of the Program Center and surrounding area, as well as two new troop houses will begin.
