Further Information

The YMCA and the YWCA in Iceland have run the Ölver summer camps for 76 years. Thousands of children have enjoyed the benefits of the encouraging atmosphere there. However, we are now in need of a new water source as our spring has dried up. With the help of specialists, we have already drilled for water but are in desperate need of benefactor to help us fund the piping to get the water from the new spring to the camp building.

Volunteer Work

We are incredibly lucky to have a sizable group of volunteers who ensure that the camp can stay open. The board of Ölver works without pay and maintenance, fund raising, cleaning, and planning is all done in volunteer work. There is also organization, hiring of staff, staff seminar follow-up, grant applications, permission applications, menu planning, enforcement of environmental plan etc. The board also delegates specific tasks to task forces and one of them is the water committee. Their decision to drill for water on our property proved successful as fresh spring water was found on the very first try.

Permanent solution for our water crisis

Fortunately, there has been an increase in the number of children coming to camp. This has called for increased water usage. Our old spring could not be relied upon for our water requirements and temporary solutions like buying and transporting water tanks to camp were not feasible long term solutions due to cost. The water committee, along with the country’s leading specialists in water drilling decided that drilling would be attempted. Two locations on our property were designated as promising and the first proved to have enough water for the camp. The water quality is good so all we need now to permanently solve our water crisis is a 160m pipeline.

Funding

The board of Ölver believes it is important to offer children the chance to stay at camp at an affordable price. The lower the price, the stronger the likelihood that every child can benefit from a stay, regardless of economic standing. The funding of construction, like the laying of the new pipeline, needs therefore to come from benefactors. We are now seeking new supporters of Ölver to lend us a hand and back the camp with their donations.

By helping Ölver you will be:

1. Ensure the availability of fresh and wholesome water for years to come

2. Supporting a worthy organization in spreading the Word of faith, love and charity to thousands of children.

3. Enabling the multiplying of funds in the hands of volunteers.

4. Giving more children the opportunity to experience the adventure of going to camp by ensuring lower camp fees.
