Partners in a plan to build cabins for Agur Lake Camp gathered at the Penticton campus of Okanagan College to sign a memorandum of understanding on Monday, March 2.

Representatives from each of the four partners committed their organizations to this project: Agur Lake Camp Society, School District 67 Okanagan Skaha, C.M. Edwards Construction Ltd. and Okanagan College’s Residential Construction program.

In carrying out this plan, 10 students in the Residential Construction program under the supervision of Darrell Butler, will assemble another cottage for Agur Lake Camp.

C.M. Edwards will supervise the construction process. Penticton RONA will provide a framing package for the cabin.

Last summer these partners assembled and moved two cottages to Agur Lake Camp.

The initial stage of construction was done on campus and then the units were trucked to the camp for installation on foundations.

The same process is planned for this summer.

Agur Lake Camp Society is a non-profit organization, which for the past six years has been planning and raising money for a wilderness camp to be used by families with special needs members.

The first families to use the camp will be doing a trial run this summer, if development proceeds according to plans.

The camp is located on Agur Lake, 25 kilometers west of Summerland.
