Camp Aiken Renovations Underway!
2/23/2017 7:00:00 AM BY Seth Morrow

If you’ve ever been to Trail Life USA’s Camp Aiken, you know the blessing the property offers to our Troops. You also might see that we are engaging in renovating some of the buildings.

One of these buildings is the Merritt Cottage. 

Merritt Cottage is one of our three cottages that has a kitchen, common area with fireplace, and huge bedrooms and baths; able to house plenty of Trailmen! Merritt was built in the 1970’s and needs updates.

Thanks to the initiative and servant leadership of Trailmen at Trail Life Troop GA-0413 in Augusta, Georgia, Merritt Cottage is coming back to life! The Troop has “adopted” the renovation of this beautiful cottage as their project, and over the weekend of January 21, about thirty adults and youth volunteered their time.

In one day, these motivated Trailmen were able to scrape the ceilings in almost the entire cottage and repair several sheets of drywall. They didn’t stop inside the cottage … they even helped get our tractor running and helped to stock the Home Office with sorted and bundled brochures! 

Trail Life Troop GA-0413 has embodied our core values of Servant Leadership and Volunteer-Driven. These Trailmen are truly Walking Worthy!

If your troop would like to volunteer and serve Trail Life USA in one of our Camp Aiken renovation projects, contact Seth Morrow, [email protected], for details on how your Troop can be involved in the restoration of Camp Aiken. Since we are committed to using member fees and store sales to run the Home Office, we rely on donations from those who want to see Camp Aiken continue to serve Trailmen even better.
