wireless point to point advice

Hey, I need some advice on getting a point to point or point to multi point set up created. I volunteer my time and donate to a local camp that I've been involved with for a long while. They finally got internet a few years ago but a lot of there purchasing is at two remote buildings. I would love to be able to get internet to said two buildings.

All I know is that the trees a are fairly dense and getting above them is next to impossible. There is some variance in height as well. I was thinking of picking up a pair of these to blast thru the trees:

I'm looking also for any other suggestions. My over all goal is to stay under $1200.

here's a google maps pic with things marked.

Why not just run a cable down to the water's edge where you can have clear line of sight?

LOS would be tough as the AP would need to be out in the water. NLOS connectivity might be possible. Plus I would like network access in the building in-between.

Do you have access to a trencher? Another option would be to buy a few pre-made fiber cables, drop them in the ground, and hook up some media converters.

Otherwise, I'm guessing 900mhz is going to be your best bet.

looks like if you can get it to the middle location the link to the further one would be easier. How far is it from A to B excluding C?
