Camp destruction....Clinton Co. (New pics Page 4)

Looks like we have some serious work ahead of us.
After years of hard work and improvements Camp Seven Pines took a tremendous hit in the storms Friday night and it looks like possibly tornado damage.
This is in the Sproul State forest between Keating and Pottersdale.

Before picture....


AFTER the damage..... WHAT A MESS.


Corner of the bridge we rebuilt years ago....


Even the outhouse took a direct hit....all that remained standing was the door. Even smashed the concrete pad.


Looking down the outhouse killer. That open area to the right of center used to be a solid patch of woods.


Best spring on the mountain is now buried....


Trees alongside our parking area


Side of camp looking up back toward where the outhouse used to be.


Where do we start.........

Wow. Hope you can rebuild what was damaged with minimal effort.

Re: Camp destruction....Clinton Co. tornado?

I feel for you guys!! But remember, that storm can destroy material things, but the memories can't be taken away!! This will prove to be just another page in your camps book and will be talked about years from now.

Good luck on the rebuild

Re: Camp destruction....Clinton Co. tornado?

I know that you realize that I do understand what you are going through. Keep a positive attitude and do your repairs. Your camp did not die, but was only damaged. Good luck on the rebuild. Please keep us posted with photos as you get it done.
