Camp Gustin
(posted 2014-03-24)

Have you been to Gustin to see the improvements made thanks to our volunteers during Beaver Day and the tremendous work of the Maine National Guard during two weekends during the summer?  New pumphouse, erosion work at the waterfront and council ring, and tree work is just the start.  View the short term and long term projects, and what’s needed for materials.  If you have any of the materials or have a connection that may, please check in with Allen Ward.  Planning is already underway for 2015!
