Springs Retreat House
- NLOM will construct a new Retreat House at The Springs that encourages summer use by confirmation camp pastors and church leaders, and year-round use by small groups. The building will feature 12 sleeping rooms, restrooms and showers, meeting space and a kitchenette. The Springs Retreat House will enable confirmation leaders to be in proximity to their campers and to develop relationships with other church leaders. It will also provide excellent lodging for spiritual retreats, as well as for small groups and volunteers. The new retreat facility will allow NLOM to use the Sjogren Center to expand Family Camp and special needs programs.
The Springs Retreat House - $350,000
Estimate includes Architecture, Septic, Furnishings, Parking, Signage, Sidewalks, Landscaping/Seeding, Site Prep, etc.
Feb, 2017 Update: Construction began on this facility last May by the Mission Builders, a group who volunteers its skills to help ELCA congregations, schools, camps and social ministry organizations construct or improve their facilities. The Springs Retreat House will be completed by Prairie Gold Homes, which is a non-profit organization running an innovative job training program in collaboration with the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services, with the help of the NLOM staff and volunteers. This facility is fully funded and will be completed early this year and be in use for Summer Camp 2017.
