Buffalo to Bays Mountain
"When will we rebuild our camp?" That's the question asked by children, pastors, former counselors, youth, parents, volunteers, supporters, UMW, grandparents and others who miss camping in the Johnson City and Kingsport Districts. These are the folks who came to Information Sessions on Monday and Tuesday nights, ready to hear the plans for continuing our camping ministry.
In his presentation, Camp Director David Elliott summarized the work done by the Camp Board since the flood of August, 2012. The consideration of engineering, construction, geology, and business reports, along with recommendations from Kaleidoscope, Inc. a national camping consulting firm, compelled the unanimous vote to sell the Buffalo Mountain Camp site and search for another location suited for a regional camping ministry.
David also announced that the camp has an option, effective through the end of this year, to purchase 80 acres of property on Bays Mountain. Many of the photographs taken at the property, and seen here, were shared in each session, along with the proposed site design. Here are the Questions & Answers from these meetings.
As camp leaders take the next steps to rebuild our camp, we welcome your prayers and support. We are excited to answer your questions or make a presentation about our camping ministry's future. Please call the Camp Office, 423.929.9037, and schedule a presentation for your church family, Sunday School class or other group.
