The Camp Palestine's greatest accomplishment was paying off the mortgage in 2013.

This year our top goals are: increase our personnel, install internet, wifi access, and computers for visitors, to install intercom speakers for announcements and emergencies through the grounds, and update and repair our sixteen cabins.
