In March 2008, Buffalo Mountain Camp kicked off "More Than
A Week - A Lifetime". It's our first capital campaign in the history of
this ministry. You see, time has taken its toll on our facilities and
upgrades are needed. Additionally, our ministry has expanded through the
years requiring that we create new facilities as well as renovate existing
Our hearts desire is for Buffalo Mountain Camp to
be a place for people to experience God, perhaps for the first time,
through study, play, fellowship, rest, and creation itself. The
capital campaign will enable us to do this for years to come!
Following is a description of completed
projects funded by the Capital Campaign:
King Tower & Zip Line -
(pictured at right) a great addition to our adventure program,
the tower features climbing, rappelling and a 600' zip line.
Greenway - (pictured above) this scenic
trail travels alongside Ramsey Creek providing a safer
alternative to traveling from one end of camp to the other.
Pavilion - a much needed
cover space, centrally located, for all aspects of our ministry.
A 52' x 44' concrete pad is the first phase of the project.
Covering the pavilion will take place in another phase, when
funds have been raised.
Maintenance Building -
providing additional storage space, as well as a work area.
Additional proposed projects include (Floor
plans can be viewed by clicking on the specific addition.):
20 Bunk Cabin - winterized
cabins that can be used during the summer, as well as by smaller
Dining Hall - can be used
year-round to provide both winterized and open air seating with
a total capacity of 300.
New Pool - a
competitive-sized pool to replace an aged pool that leaks,
create high maintenance cost and is an eyesore.
Bath House - located at the
new pool, this bath house will provide showers and bathroom
facilities for programming on the lower end of camp.
- a multi-use facility located close to the camp entrance to
better serve visitors.
