Walnut is getting a fresh look! We are getting close to calling this project complete however there is still lots more to do. Rooms 1-4 are nearly finished with just a few different cosmetic things left to do, the roof and porches are up and running, and the doors and windows are installed. We still have lots to do in rooms 5-8 so if you feel led to come and get involved in this project, there are still opportunities for you to do that! Call the camp office and see how you can get involved today!
If you have been keeping tabs with us here at Bethany Camp, you may have heard about plans for a large recreational building. This building is our next step for our projects here at camp, and is also a big part of the "Moving Forward" initiative that was started a few years ago. This building would allow our camp to expand in so many ways. First, this would give us an opportunity to host more groups at the camp. Second, this would allow us to accommodate activities that may have been changed due to inclement weather. Third, this building will give us more space for meetings, new offices, and possibly a new chapel. Finally, this building could have the potential to be used for community outreach programs as we widen our impact in the schools and towns around us in an attempt to build community among the areas surrounding us. There is a lot more information on this future building project. To hear more, attend one of our vision dinners to hear about this and many more future initiatives.

There is a large amount of history and stories behind this one small building. When this building was first built, it served as our Snack Shack for many years. With the creation of our Bethany Bistro, this building had lost it's use until it was reformed into our Craft Shack for our crafty people of Bethany Camp, in which it also became famous for the production center for all those "Tye Dye Friday" shirts. And now, this building is once again being reformed into an all new attraction for our Bethany Camp campers!
This fall, we will be starting a new project on renovating our craft shack to flip it into a gaming room for our campers, retreat groups, and other guests that visit our camp. This is one more baby step towards our goal of having space to be able to host a second smaller group during our retreat season! If you feel led to help with this project, we are looking for supplies to fill this room up with such as tabletop games like foosball and air hockey, board and card games, and other fun activities to do in a small place. Please be in prayer for this project as we are excited for the opportunities it opens up for the many guests that visit the camp every year!
The Pavilion project is completely finished besides a few finishing touches! Thank you so much to everyone who has given so much time and resources into providing this facility. This allows us to expand our programs in many ways during the summer and even during the winter. This building will be home to our newly introduced Ice Hockey Rink for when the winter season is upon us. We look forward to the many new things still to come in the future, God is so Good!
