Our new "ER"

OLT folks (Outdoor Leadership Team of the CCO) often get teased for the abundant use of acronyms. It's true we like to abbreviate ("I need to get my WFR and ITC before LDW so I can be a WEA NSP CI!")
Anyway, our ER (Equipment Room), pending board approval, will soon be housed in this big barn. Many thanks to a wonderful family who loves to support the work of the OLT, we will have a clean, dry, spacious and free place to store our gear all in one place. It is also a quiet place where staff and students can spend a day or two packing, preparing, and getting aquainted before trips, as well as drying out, unpacking and having space for reflection on the experience they just had.
In the 20+ years the CCO has owned equipment for adventure activities, God has always provided a place at little to no cost for the ER. As we move out of Cabot, PA, we are thankful for the last family who generously gave their space and smiles. And, we celebrate the provision of a new place with limitless potential for transforming college students!
