Tamara Juul (left), executive director of Dickinson Area Community Foundation (DACF), which includes the Crystal Falls Area Community Foundation affiliate, presents $1,250 check to Louisa Kniivila of Friends of Camp Batawagama. Also pictured are Youth Advisory Committee members, from left, Georgie Dohl, Jake Divine, Carlton Isaacson, Michael Smithson and Gina Graff.  The grant was made possible through the Youth Advisory Committee Endowment Fund.  The monies will be used to create a water front dock extension, adding an “L” extension to the left side of the dock.  This will once again secure a safe swimming area for the kids so the waterfront staff will be able to conduct swimming lessons and free swims easily. Youth from all over the Upper Peninsula and the Midwest attend Camp Batawagama each summer.  For more information about Camp Batawagama and how you can help, contact Pat Teranishi at (707) 751-1450.  For information about DACF, CFACF or YAC endowment funds, which made this grant possible, contact Juul at (906) 774-3131.
