Camp Torenta Dining Hall receives $113,000 from Rotary Club of Cadillac
On Tuesday, June 2, the Rotary Club of Cadillac presented a check for $113,000 to CAPS for the fulfillment of the commitment made in 2007 to support the reconstruction of the Camp Torenta Dining
Hall. Fundraising for this project was made possible by the community support of the Rotary Club of Cadillac's Annual Community Auction held in April where 700+ community members bid on silent and live auction items donated from local and regional businesses. The Camp Torenta Dining Hall project was a
two year fundraising effort.

"The year-around Dining Hall will provide CAPS Students and Campers additional science related educational opportunities," said Paul Liabenow, CAPS Superintendent, "We are proud of what we have accomplished and very lucky to have the community support education and our kids like this." "I'm proud of how Rotary has been an integral part of Camp Torenta since it began in the 1930's. This is a dream come true for the Steering committee and many past campers "said Dr. Randy Myers, Chr. of Camp Torenta Steering Committee, "Many friends of Camp Torenta have put many hours to make this a reality. A new dining hall combined with new cabins and the renovation of other historic buildings is just the start of rebuilding the Camp. There is a lot of Cadillac History there and we want more kids to experience it, generation after generation."

The Camp Torenta Dining Hall construction is positioned to begin late this fall. If you would like to become involved with revitalizing Camp Torenta, please go to To learn more about
