We “need” you and your group to come and visit Bambi Lake……
Come and see what changes have been made since your last visit. We are working hard to make improvements daily so there is a good chance that things will be a little different somewhere since your last visit. For those that may not have been here for many years, we hope that the changes will be very obvious and continue to make it feel like “Your Camp”… and to help you to continue “Your Legacy” here at Bambi Lake…… Do you have a group of motivated people in your church that have a heart for helping others? Or does your group have any skilled professionals that could come and visit for a day, a weekend, or even longer possibly? We always have a need for work teams and professionals to come and help us with projects around the property. Do you have any contacts that would be willing to donate building materials, furniture, decorations, landscaping materials, plants, general supplies, or anything on the list below? Please have them contact us thru email or call the office at - 989.275.5844 - for more details.
Just a few of our wish list items……
Please contact us to discuss items on this page in more detail before donating or purchasing anything. Monetary gifts allow us to purchase the sizes or quality of items that need to hold up to a commercial style environment. Bambi Lake Resort & Conference Center is a non-profit tax exempt entity of the BSCM. We would be interested in possible contacts that you may know of that might have access to these items and/or might be willing to make a donation. If you happen to have other items in mind that you think we might be able to use, please contact us and we can discuss them as well.
Board games and puzzles are enjoyed by all here at Bambi Lake and we have a good selection usually but can always use more.
We are always in need of people who are skilled in the construction, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, painting, and other related areas.
Do you have a skid steer and some attachments, mid sized bulldozer, mini excavator, self propelled 4 wheel drive telescopic man lift, bucket truck, mid sized tractor with attachments, dump trailer, or other similar equipment that you could bring to Bambi Lake for a few days, a weekend, or possibly an extended period of time? Or do you know somebody in your church or organization that does? We have a number of projects that are on the “to do” list but we are not currently able to accomplish them without having the right equipment.
We are looking for a 4 wheel drive automatic 3/4 ton or heavier pickup truck in good to very good condition. This truck will need to have a title and be insurable to be used off the camp property.
Also a 4 wheel drive automatic one ton pickup with a flat bed or dump bed that might not look like new but is in good mechanical condition to be used on the camp property.
Large commercial 3 phase propane generator. The Wilson Building has our worship area with stage and lights but also houses our commercial kitchen which includes a full size walk in refrigerator and a full size walk in freezer. When storms roll thru northern Michigan there is a good chance we will lose power, this not only leaves us in the dark during events but there is a good chance that we can lose large amounts of food.
Outdoor activity equipment like basketballs, volleyballs, field hockey equipment, broomball equipment, yard games, archery targets, fire arms targets, paddle boards, kayaks, paddle boats, row boats, canoes, life jackets, cabin style tents, gas camp stoves, camping water filters, hammocks, lawn chairs, outside patio furniture,
Crew cab 4 wheel drive side by side for use on the property for maintenance and staff. Or just a regular size side by side would be great too.
Looking for a few decent golf carts to have available for guests who have mobility issues. Gas powered carts would be preferred.
Commercial kitchen related items - pizza oven, dishwasher, warmer lights, outdoor kitchen cooking items. Charcoal is always on the needs list. We are usually grilling at least one meal outside during each of our shorter retreat events and two or three meals during our longer events.
We are also in need of a medium to small size three compartment commercial metal sink to upgrade the sink area in the Shake Shop.
Heavy construction related equipment. Top of the list would be a tracked skid steer loader with auxiliary hydraulic hookups to run various attachment, like a grapple bucket and snowblower. A mid-sized utility tractor with pto and 3 point hitch. Medium sized bulldozer to widen and shape our roads and trails.
Remodeling of guest accommodations - This could be monetary gifts given to make upgrades and/or remodel rooms. In addition to the monetary gifts, skilled labor will help to accomplish these tasks in a timely manner.
This area is available to our private guests to use while they are staying with us. Currently there is a freezer and refrigerator. Plans are to expand the area to include a continental breakfast area as well.
