Indian Creek Camp (ICC) has received a variety of upgrades to its maintenance and recreational facilities. The improvements, which have been in the works for months, include new wooden-flooring, new bunk mattresses, and a new zip line.
Greg Taylor, ICC director, says camp personnel made an appeal last summer to work on the renovations. Through the donations of campers and financial support of the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference, the camp raised more than $95,000 for the projects.
“In addition to the donations, we were also blessed with a handful of volunteers from across the Conference,” Taylor said. “It’s incredible to see how much people love [ICC], and how they’re willing to give their time and money to help see a comfortable move forward.”
The new wooden floors were placed in the back cabins, and now the project will move on to the front counselor cabins. More than 100 new mattresses were purchased for the bunk beds, replacing the previous 12-year-old bedding. The zip line is a four-part course, stretching between 300 and 400 yards from station to station.
In addition to the changes, ICC has also received roof repairs on the cabins and facilities upgrades in the horse arena. Upcoming projects include new stage lighting for the chapel, a nature center, and an outdoor volleyball court.
“We do all this work because we care about this ministry,” Taylor said. “We care deeply about [the campers’] experience with Jesus. By providing a comfortable, safe, and fun camp, we show our commitment to drawing visitors closer to Christ.”
This year, more than 1,250 campers have signed up for summer camp. The first junior camp starts on June 12, 2022.
