Build the Ark Campaign

As we look ahead, our goals center around going deeper with our partner ministries throughout the year. We plan to increase our visibility on the campus of each of our partners, but our major focus will be centered around hosting our partners throughout the year for both day and overnight retreats on our property. This is the vision behind our Build the Ark Campaign. Originally, the project included one building called The Ark which would include an indoor basketball court and recreation space along with a common area and restrooms for us to use year-round when hosting groups on our property. In addition to the recreational and common spaces, the building was also going to include an apartment for our Camp Director, additional leader rooms, and an additional bunk room for our campers and counselors. After meeting with our building consultants, it was advised that we split the two parts of the project into two separate buildings. One of these buildings will be The Ark, which will include the indoor recreation and common spaces. The other building, The Cottage, will include all of the additional lodging needs. With our Board of Directors contributing 100% of the funding for The Cottage, our fundraising efforts are focused on raising support for the building of The Ark. Currently, we have $1.15 million in donations, pledges, matching gifts and grants towards our total goal of $1.25 million to fully fund the completion of these two buildings. This project will allow us to serve our partner ministries all year long by providing space to play and additional lodging to accommodate our growing ministry as we continue to provide a free Christian camp for kids who otherwise could not experience it. Thank you for prayerfully considering to support this project!

CURRENT PROGRESS: As of March 25, 2024

Cottage: The Cottage is well on its way to completion prior to our summer camp season. Currently we are working on siding, flooring, cabinets, bathrooms, and fixtures prior to going through final inspection in April.  

Ark: We have finalized designs and signed contracts with Appalachian Design who has ordered our steel building. We are currently in the process of receiving our septic and building permit. The construction site has been cleared of trees and will be graded upon receiving our permits. Our goal is to complete the building prior to the next cold season in 2024.
