Coppercreek Camp lost: 28 structures, thousands of trees and its critical power and water systems.
Coppercreek Camp didn’t lose: 3 main houses, 8 cabins, 2 showerhouses, 1 barn, and countless friends and camp family.
Coppercreek Camp has been providing youth from around the world a traditional overnight summer camp experience for over 50 years.
In 1965, John Lindskog and Lynne Evarts bought the raw land and built the summer camp from the ground up. The camp has remained in the family and is now owned by John and Lynne’s granddaughter, Sutter Rogers, and her husband Taylor Rogers.
A culmination of the economic hardship from COVID-19 and the extensive damages of the Dixie Fire have pushed Sutter and Taylor to pivot their small business. Their vision is to rebuild infrastructure for a unique camping experience. They hope to install spacious RV sites, renovate the 8 remaining bunk cabins for “glamping” and expand current tent camping options on their 200 acre forested property.
The RV sites can provide emergency housing for local families impacted by the Dixie Fire in the short term, and their plan will offer economic support for the community in the long term as the county heals from this devastation. To make this vision a reality, Coppercreek Camp needs financial resources to rebuild and install the infrastructure. Please consider making a donation to Coppercreek Camp today!
