More than $450,000 in summer storm damage at Camp Guyasuta will be partially offset by proceeds from a comedy show on Oct. 28.

Tickets are available for Brad Upton’s performance at Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall, with special guest Frank Perman.

Doors open at 6 and the show is at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $35 and are available at ticketfly.com.

The Boy Scout-owned camp sustained extensive damage this summer across the 175-acre campus in O’Hara.

“The week of July 4 we got hit by two separate floods from rainstorms that pounded the region,” Ranger Mike Daniher said.

Three bridges were completely destroyed, Daniher said, and two more were damaged.

“Many trees were uprooted and they downed many light poles supplying power,” Daniher said.

Mud flowed down the hillside and into the swimming pool and shelters. The biggest loss occurred when mudslides shifted ground along the hills, he said.

Camp Guyasuta is covered partially by insurance but most of the damage was not paid for.

With more than 20,000 people using the campgrounds each year, many activities in mid-summer through September had to be canceled.

“This event will help raise much-needed money to bring this hidden jewel back to normal,” Daniher said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
