Ontario Trillium Capital Grant Recognition Event

Friday, September 22 at 12:00pm

Essex County MPP Taras Natyshak attended Gesstwood Camp and Retreat Centre

to celebrate the opening of the new Washroom/Shower facility.

The washrooms are a much-needed addition as they are replacing a facility that was 57 years old. Winterized washrooms enable the camp to offer year round programming for field trips, overnight retreats and a very welcomed addition to our day/overnight summer camps.

Ontario Trillium Foundation volunteer, Paresh Jariwala attended the launch and  formally presented Gesstwood Camp with a plaque to mark the work done as a result of receiving a Capital Grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

Receiving the Plaque on behalf of the camp was:

Karen Seguin,
