CABINS

Summers can be hot in Tennessee. Our Cabins are rustic and air-conditioned. Each cabin is complete with 6 bunks allowing 12 campers per cabin. With 12 cabins (6 of which are dedicated to the ladies, 6 of which are dedicated to the gentlemen), that is room for 144 campers. A director's cabin with 8 beds and two bathrooms. The boat house sleeps 6 and a single bathroom, adds extra space for renters.

Bath House

Newly renovated bathhouses provide an experience unlike most other summer camps. There are two bathhouses on the boys side and two on the girls side. Each bathhouse houses two toilet stalls, four shower stalls, and a double sink.

Kitchen and Dining

Commercial kitchen

Our commercial kitchen is centrally located in the dining hall. Four warming pans begin the long serving counter. Three commercial ovens have the space to cook for any size crowd. Above 1 oven is a large flat griddle; above the next oven is a grill, and above the 3rd oven is our cook top. All of these are gas. Nestled in between 2 of the ovens is a commercial size deep fryer. There is a walk-in pantry, linen closet, and bathroom. A walk-in cooler and freezer sits in the rear. Our washroom is complete with a commercial dishwasher. Cooking utensils, pots and pans, commercial coffee maker, silverware and cups are all provided.

Dining

The dining hall is a large open area where renters conduct their large group business. It is used as an eating spot, a worship sanctuary, a game room, and a large space for entertaining. Tables, chairs, and stage partitions are provided. For those who visit during cooler weather, a rock fireplace towers in the rear of the dining hall. Firewood is available on site. Most groups, during warmer weather, utilize the large hearth as a stage, for their meeting time in the dining hall. The rock, that was used to build the fireplace, was collected on the adjacent hill next to the dining hall by scouts in the early 70's, as our dining hall was constructed. A large covered Pavilion sits just outside of the dining hall, along the creek. It has picnic tables that provide enough seating for most groups. It is complete with lighting and fans. Horseshoe pits are next to this Pavilion as well. Our seating in the dining hall consists of 8 foot banquet tables and chairs, accommodating enough seating for our sleeping capacity, which is 168.

Worship

Chapel in the woods

Our outdoor chapel in the woods is centrally located between the boy's and girl's cabins. With our lake as it's backdrop, it has been utilized for classroom space, worship and devo space, skit night, as well as a wedding chapel. Benches line the graveled seating area, and can accommodate most groups. There is 1 outlet located at the front of the stage area

We also have 3 disc golf baskets; 2 of which line the creek just beyond the court, with the other 1 across the creek in the outfield of the ball field.
