Those of you have been associated with Camp Wetoga for any length of time have seen to swimming pool deteriorate until it passed the point of no return and could not be resurrected for another year. For several years the Board of Directors had been planning for this eventuality and allocating funds for a replacement. However, it came sooner than hoped and a loan was acquired and construction on the much need new pool began on 2018.
Due to changes in state law regarding commercial pools, we got off to a slow start and rain slowed construction even more, so the pool was not completed in time for camp that year. However, to cool the campers off on hot days, the camp purchased a giant waterslide. While the kids loved the waterslide, they missed having a pool.
After weeks of rain delays, the concrete around the pool was finally poured, the equipment installed, and the fence erected, The new pool passed inspection just days before camp opened in 2019,
