Camp Naco Public Access – The Next Step

Removal of the asbestos roof tiles that protected the Camp Naco buildings since 1919 is now complete. Grant funding and many generous donors allowed us to put plywood and new rolled roofing on ten buildings. But the adobe walls of one of the former Officer’s Quarters are already eroding and are severely threatened by the upcoming summer rains.

We are seeking grant funding to cover the biggest portion of the $30,000 price tag for our next step forward at Camp Naco. But continued support from private donations is essential to stabilize and roof the Officer’s Quarter (C-1) and to prepare Camp Naco for more regular public access.

There are still piles of construction debris and vegetation trimmings that need to be hauled off to the land fill. More tidying up of the interior will allow us to hold more regular tours of this wonderful historic place.

Our current grant request is for $20,000, which means that we will have to raise at least $10,000 in additional funds to implement the next stage of getting Camp Naco ready for the public. So, please help us reach our goal of $10,000.
