The 48th Annual Beaver Camp Auction is going online! The live auction, bake sale, plant stand, and other booths will not be at the Lewis County Fairgrounds for our annual event. To keep our friends and community safe, we will have a week-long online auction hosted by Bontrager Auctions. Follow the link above to view items, bid, and pay. Your purchases provide critically-needed support for Beaver Camp's summer program and other ministry projects.
We are now accepting donations of handcrafted furniture, quilts, gift certificates for local businesses and experiences, and other unique items.
The online auction will begin at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, June 9 and end at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 16. Items can be picked up from the Warming Barn at Maple Ridge Center, 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM, June 18-20. Contact Beaver Camp about making other arrangements, such as shipping or other pickup times, prior to the end of the auction.
Special thanks to this year’s auction underwriters! Boulevard Properties, Purcell Construction, Roggies Cabinets, Widrick Maple, Eastern Grain, Lowville Medical Associates, Croghan Electric, Norris Electric, Combs Heating, Croniser, Lawrence and Phillippe CPA, Iseneker Funeral Home, Wolffs Body Shop, Sherman Electric and Carthage Federal Savings and Loan.
2nd Prize: Free week of summer camp ($430 value)
3rd Prize: Polaris Northstar Jacket ($220 value)
Tickets can be purchased at Steele's Ace Home Center in Lowville, Buckingham Hardware in Croghan, or by contacting Beaver Camp. Get 1 ticket for $20 or 6 tickets for $100. Winners will be drawn at the conclusion of the BBQ on June 13 and shown on our Facebook page.
All proceeds benefit Beaver Camp by providing important support for our children’s camp program, offsetting the true cost of summer camp. In 2019, the actual cost per resident camper was $500, yet the average fee charged was well under $400. This annual fundraiser is what helps cover the difference.
