**********************CAMP SCHERMAN UPDATE**********************
This is an update on the status of the Mountain Fire in the Idylwild area.
7/22/13, 5:00 pm: Thank you all for sending your positive thoughts (and singing camp songs) for Camp Scherman! The conditions continue to improve at camp and the Mountain Fire has not damaged Camp Scherman. We did voluntarily evacuate the camp last week and all made it home safely. We are proceeding with cleanup around camp and monitoring of air and water quality. At this time, things look good for Aug 1.
Many, many thanks to the truly heroic efforts of our facilities and camp team in going above and beyond, working with local authorities and firefighters to protect our camp! We were even able to help our firefighters use resources wisely! Helicopters drew water from our lake for water drops and teams of firefighters used our camp to take showers, get some sleep and even ate from our kitchen. Help us thank these incredible firefighters for their amazing efforts by posting a photo or a thank you sign to their facebook pages (be sure to tag Orange County Fire, Corona Fire Dept, City of Riverside Fire, Cal Fire, Los Angeles County Fire Department, Idyllwild Mountain Fire Net) or by emailing a thank you video to email@example.com. We will compile the photos and videos into a message for these brave men and women!
