YMCA of Alaska Camp Peggy Lake is in need of covered pavilions for their Archery Range and BB Gun Range. Two of the most popular learning activities at camp take place at the BB gun range and the Archery range. Campers learn about the equipment and how to safely use it. Camp takes place rain or shine but these two activities are susceptible to inclement weather. A tough weather week during camp can dramatically reduce a campers' participation in these activities. The construction of two pavilions would help facilitate these activities, rain or shine. This project will be completed by August 31, 2023. The funds will be used to purchase the kits and the labor will be supplied by Wasilla Sunrise Rotary volunteers. Mat-Su YMCA envisions their non-profit organization- in partnership with others- as an intergenerational community hub with programs, services, and resources available to all persons, regardless of status or ability to pay, that will enable them to improve their quality of life.

Site Prep: $2,500

These poles will establish a covered shooting area for the BB Gun Range and the Archery Range.
These areas are established, but with the covered area additions, areas will be upgraded with additional tree and brush clearing and graveled shooting area.
Plan would be to have site work for structure to be completed and utilize volunteer club rotarians under the direction of contractor to complete the building of the pole barns.
Equipment Rental: $1,000
Rental of Bobcat/mini dozer to clear and prepare building site as well as the shooting lanes and target areas.
Total estimated cost for site prep and construction of two pole barns: $30,000
The price of the pole barns are developed as a kit and delivered to the camp. Having this done as a kit and delivered to the camp would be the best option.
YMCA of Alaska will contribute the balance needed for this project ($10,000).
