And we are thrilled to say that the Hills are Alive! Welcome to the launch of the Templed Hills campaign!
The Hills are Alive! Campaign focuses on the needs of Templed Hills Camp over the coming two to three years. A precious natural resource of the Ohio Conference, Templed Hills continues to advance on its path to sustainability. And we’ve begun to dream about what comes nest:
New HVAC heat pump system in Memorial lodge
Installation of solar arrays to reduce our carbon footprint
Accessible restrooms in Skipper Lodge
Camp improvements including a large pavilion for worship
Growing our Campership Fund
Practicing covenantal stewardship to the national UCC’s Shaping Our Future Campaign
