Field Day — October 28 at Camp Millhouse


We’re looking forward to a great day at Camp Millhouse on October 28. 

We’re so pleased with the response from all of you, the generous donations, and the offers to be part of the crew.

Scope of Project: The on-site sewage system we are designing for Camp Millhouse is a 3,216 square feet Advance Enviro-Septic (AES) bed with a daily design flow of 2,400 gallons per day and a soil-loading rate of 0.50 gpd/sf. This system will be pumped to gravity with a minimum septic tank capacity of 4,800 gallons.

Volunteer: We need several volunteers for this Field Day.  Volunteers will be able to receive a minimum of 5 CEUs to a maximum of 10 CEUs. Volunteers teams include: Welcoming Team, Safety Team, Parking Team, Contractors Team, Photographer/Videographer, Logistics Team. Please contact Greg Inman (317-458-5718 or if you are interested in volunteering.

Donations: Monetary donations are key to bringing this project together.  Contributions will pay for crucial components to this system that cannot be donated.  You can make a contribution using the online donation button on this page.  No donation is too small to make a difference.

Thanks to our great sponsors and supporters, most products needed for the Field Day project have been donated! We’re still in need of some 2″ pipe and 2 pumps.  Call or text Greg Inman at 317-452-5718 if you can help with those items.
