Building Our Community finalist - Camp Roger | News
CANNON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Grand Rapids-based Erhardt Construction turns 50 years old this year. The company is celebrating with Building Our Community contest.
Five non-profit groups are competing for a $45,000 Erhardt Construction project. One of those finalists is Camp Roger in Cannon Township.
Camp Roger offers a Christian setting for children to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. Organizers want to use the grand prize to build a rope swing and a fishing dock.
"Decades ago, we used to have a rope swing on Pickerel Lake," said Doug Vanderwell, the Executive Director at Camp Roger. "It was a favorite of our campers. It was an intimidating challenge, but they learned to push each other, encourage each other, and conquer their fears. We'd like to bring that back to Bostwick Lake, in a kind of safer and more modern way."
The winner of the contest will be determined by an online vote. To cast your vote, click here.
