Thanks to your generosity

 

Because of donors like you…

We have already completed the following projects:

The new Ropes Course
New Ropes Course
A state-of-the-art ropes course was installed at the A/U Ranches, permitting multiple users to navigate the course simultaneously and experience varying levels of difficulty. This enhances the experience for participants in many programs at the A/U Ranches, including Youth Camp, Family Camp, Adult Mini-Camp and the 100 Elk Outdoor Center.

Landing page of new website
Technology Upgrade
AdventureUnlimited.org and DiscoveryBound.org were redesigned for a more user-friendly experience and to better promote our different brands – Adventure Unlimited as an organization, the A/U-DB Foundation, the A/U Ranches and DiscoveryBound’s Outreach, Compass and National Leadership Council (NLC) programs. The A/U Ranches’ phone system was also upgraded for consistency across the organization.

Wyly Lodge winterization
Wyly Lodge Winterized
To date Valerie Lodge had been the only lodge on property that was winterized. Transforming Wyly into a year-round facility was critically important, as we continue to expand our year-round programming.

New mattresses
Bed/Mattress Replacement
Many bed frames and all the bunkhouse mattresses at both Sky Valley and Round-Up Ranches have been replaced. The completion of this project is an important step, as we promote programs that cater to youth and adults.

Renovated Chuckwagon deck
Chuckwagon Deck
To meet safety compliance standards, the upstairs deck on Chuckwagon Lodge, our dining and meeting facility at Sky Valley Ranch, was completely removed and rebuilt. Chuckwagon is the oldest building on our property and was built in the late 1800s.

One of the new yurts
Yurts Campus
Three yurts and a bathroom/shower house were built to provide added housing and meeting space on property to accommodate some of our larger events.

National Leadership Council Expansion
DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council Expansion
NLC has doubled its participants, now facilitating two classes of 20 each year of this four-year servant leadership program. It is also cultivating interest in running the program abroad.

The first DB Compass class
DiscoveryBound Compass Program Launch
This one-year program for high school students provides opportunities to discuss current and relevant topics with their peers on a monthly basis and to explore Christian Science tools available to guide them through their high school years and beyond. The program kicked off with its first in-person group meeting in September 2015. Participant responses have been positive and a second group enjoyed a successful 2016-2017 year.


Campership Endowment Fully Funded
With $600,000 in principal funds, reaching this goal means that campers well into the future who don’t have the means to attend camp can receive financial aid, supported by the Campership Endowment Fund.


Hilltop Expanded
In this structure at the A/U Ranches, a kitchen and community area were added to the rooms to provide high-quality living space for previously seasonal management staff to work at the A/U Ranches throughout the year.
On behalf of all those we serve – thank you!
