Delano Bay Christian Camp A Legacy of Christian Values Reaching to Eternity

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!  A very special thanks to Brian Erikson for all his hard work on the seaside cabin named “Fir.” We had some heavy-duty electrical & plumbing issues that needed to be fixed. Brian was gracious enough to donate materials & his time to help us upgrade and repair the electrical issues! Thank you so much!  We also want to thank Jack & Joy Manson for their continued support of Delano. Jack made six picture frames for several of our irregularly shaped past camp pictures. Little by little camp pictures are being framed & hung in the downstairs hall in the Lodge. Thanks to all who have helped with this project. Jack also came to our rescue with his chainsaw when we had several branches fall from our trees in the recent rain storms.  Thanks go to Jim & Nan Karkosky as well for donating and bringing out a gently used table and matching chairs to be used in one of the cabins. The cabins sure need more donations like this. 

Thanks to a recent donation from Keith & Becky Purser (side-by-side fridge/ freezer), the loss of the compressor in our large 2door freezer has not caused any hardship.

Springbrook, Burien & Bellevue all enjoy Fall Retreats! October has been very busy as we were able to host three weekend retreats! Thank you to Springbrook, Burien & Bellevue for coming out to camp!
