Camp Koolaree was at risk of not operating this year as their refrigerators malfunctioned and could not be repaired. This was the second catastrophe for the camp this year as their wash house was destroyed by 3 huge Cedar trees in a windstorm. An urgent plea was put out for some financial assistance. Nelson Daybreak has a history of supporting Camp Koolaree and actually built a couple of cabins many years ago. Daybreak stepped up again to help this worthy cause.
The Camp is located on beautiful lake front property across the lake from 6 Mile. Six camps will operate throughout this season and provide programs for kids 7-17. Camp Koolaree is operated by the Camp Koolaree Society under the auspices of the United Church. It was established in 1931.
