Camp Lawroweld (ME) Project
Each year, Maranatha works with organizations in the United States and Canada to provide volunteer labor for various construction or renovation projects. Camp Lawroweld is one of our many efforts based in North America.
Camp Lawroweld was originally constructed as “North Woods Maine Camp” for the boys of Yale University. Built around 1900, this post and beam lodge has one of the largest stone fireplaces in the state of Maine. The camp is situated on beautiful Lake Weld, a natural glacial lake surrounded by mountains.
Volunteers on this project will help with renovations to the lodge, including wood paneling, flooring, and finishing. A remodel of the girls bathhouse is also needed.
Please consider joining us on this project!
