The Armada PAL Camp staff is excited that camp is just around the corner! So excited in fact, that a few staff members and their families headed up to camp a little early to get their hands dirty working on the Cody Lodge.
Last weekend, 5 of our volunteers (including Cody's family!) hung drywall, sanded window panes, and faced their fears of ladders! They also took some time to take a walk around the grounds to experience the beauty that nature has to offer. We are so proud of the work that all of our volunteers have done, building this lodge from the ground up, and we cannot thank our volunteers enough for the countless hours of work they have put into this project. Cody will always hold a special place in our hearts, and this lodge is the essence of Cody.
We are so excited to share this Lodge with our 8th grade campers. Cody would be so proud!
If you are interested in supporting The Cody Lodge through monetary donation or time - please reach out to myself or Vince DiGiorgio, firstname.lastname@example.org - as we lead the organization's philanthropic efforts.
In collaboration with Center Lake Bible Camp and Retreat Center, Armada PAL Camp is helping support the build of a lodge to support our program and we are dedicating to past PAL volunteer, 8th Grade counselor, and family member, Cody Pagan.
Standing on the previously tented 8th Grade campgrounds, The Cody Lodge is a three-season housing unit and is approximately 112'x18'. It has four camper cabins, a staff cabin, 24 permanent wooden frame bunk beds with a total capacity of 52 people. It also has a covered porch running the length of the lodge that provides campers a protected place to gather.
Armada PAL is so thankful and excited for this new building in collaboration with Center Lake Bible Camp. We know our campers will love it, and there will be countless memories and friendships formed in it this summer.
