I will pick up this blog with the next phase of our construction projects here at Camp Foley. The new Rec. Center was the 3rd move in this shifting of venues. If you don’t know what I am talking about, you will have to scroll back in Foleys’ Rattlin’ Blog and find the first two explaining our major construction and transfer of activity areas.

What’s now known as the Rec. Center was previously just the old garage. No campers ever went into the building. Like I mentioned before, it was home to the Foleys’ lawn tractor, skid steer, log splitter, and extra hockey goals. Now it is a beautiful building that is full of excitement and fun. The project started in a snowy late April with the snow having to be shoveled off the old roof to begin the new steel roofing. For Your Information, we didn’t change the roofline so, no need for a building permit!

The new steel roofing glows with the same green sheen as the maintenance center. We did not tear any part of this old building down. We simply just renovated the existing structure that is easier typed than done! It was merely gutted on the inside and with the addition of log siding to the outside, we have a beautiful building. For the campers and to enhance the fun at the Foley Fun Center, we added speakers on the inside and outside the building. So now when the campers are battling it out in our Human Foosball or swatting around the birdie at Badminton or playing a game of Giant Tether they have the opportunity to listen to their favorite songs. For the inside of the Rec. Center we moved our pool table, ping pong tables, foosball tables, and added arcade hoops for fun and games. It is a great place with an awesome atmosphere.

It’s just another great addition to an already awesome place called…Camp Foley! Stop by sometime and check it out!
Until next time,
