Building Projects      

There are some exciting changes happening at Camp!

Dining Hall
Construction has begun on the new Dining Hall! The new Dining Hall will be located the left of the existing dining hall and is projected to open in 2018. Sheffer Dining Hall will remain as it is and be used for banquets and meeting space. 

Impact on groups: 
The Georgia Power Building and the Picnic Pavilion have been demolished. We still have basketball goals near the tennis courts.
The road in front of Mobley Hall is no longer a through road. The road ends in front of Mobley and Sheffer and will remain this way permanently. Parking has been reduced. 
The primary entrance into Newton County Conference Room is inside the construction zone, so groups must use the Brown Center entrance. At some point during construction the Newton County Conference Room will be renovated as well.
The walking path from the south side of camp (near Melvin Johnson and GDA cabins) towards Sheffer Hall is blocked by the construction. Campers have to follow the road in front of Walters Hall to reach Sheffer Hall and the surrounding area. 

We ask that our groups be patient during this time period. There will be construction traffic and some inconveniences, but we will work hard to minimize the impact on your event. The safety of your campers is of primary importance. 



New Activity Center
The Activity Center has been completed, which is located on the lower field where the high ropes course sits. This is a large multi-use building that opened in March 2017. The building is named the Terry England Leadership Center. More about this building HERE 
The High Ropes Course was closed during construction but is now reopened! 

We think you will be pleased with the results of these two great camp improvements!


Bridge Construction      

Georgia DOT began construction in April 2017 on a bridge between the camp and Jackson on Hwy 36. This will impact all groups travelling from the south. They will detour northbound traffic from Hwy 36 to Hwy 162 and Hwy 212. Taking the detour will add approximately 10 minutes to your trip time. You can also take an alternative route on Hwy 212.
