MADRID, IOWA (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 05, 2018
Clover Woods Camp and Retreat Center has started construction on a new outdoor inground seasonal pool.
The Iowa 4-H Foundation, owner of the camp and retreat center, received a generous donation to use for facility improvement and decisions were quickly made to add a beautiful new pool to enhance the recreational opportunities for camp & retreat guests.
The camp and retreat center has been undergoing many site improvements as they work to attract new business. Abby Muhlenbruch, Site Director at Clover Woods, says “Swimming pools are fun for campers of all ages. It invites healthy exercise and a cooling off spot in the hot summertime.”
Other improvements made this summer include new staining on the dining hall, re-shingling a cabin exterior, trail clearing and wood debris removal. “The Midland Power Volunteers spent a day caring for this camp that has brought them so many fond memories,” says Muhlenbruch. “We have many loyal customers who want to keep giving back and make Clover Woods Camp & Retreat better and better so more people will come enjoy the outdoors.”
Clover Woods is available to schools, churches, and all non profit groups for day use, retreats, and other events. Food service, lodging and recreational opportunities are available year-round. The camp is managed by United Camps, Conferences & Retreats, a non profit camp property management cooperative.
