Hurricane Irma Recovery
During the storm that moved over us the night of September 10, 2017, we were able to provide shelter & food to 187 hurricane refugees, 20 dogs, 10 cats and 2 chickens. Now that hurricane Irma has passed, it has affected many with its flurry. The catastrophic damages are immeasurable at this point. Please scroll to bottom for photos.
We at Camp Kulaqua are no exception. Even after the storm has passed, we are being affected by the rising flood water levels from the Santa Fe River and near springs. The water as of today has risen about 20’ above the normal levels, causing the Hornsby Springs to overflow into our camp. Many of our buildings are under water, roads are flooded, and some zoo animals evacuated. As of now, five of our buildings are now flooded including Stillwater’s Lodge and more are in danger as the spring rises. Our staff is working diligently to ensure the preservation and safety of our camp.
Camp is open and will continue to operate with the majority of our facility. As we embark on a road to recovery, we ask for your urgent contributions, assistance and prayers to restore and rebuild the damage of the aftermath.
Because we are a registered 501(c)(3) organization, your donation is completely tax deductible.
