Building plans
Your camp needs to serve more campers and in a better way.

More lodging is needed.
Our summer camper numbers are increasing; in 2018 we had more campers than ever before in our history--over 1,170 campers.  Since we did not have enough lodging, we had to turn away some summer campers and at times we had to have junior/SALT staff sleep in houses of year-round staff, family cabins and conestoga wagons.  Our maximum lodging in summer camp cabins is 135; this summer we had as many as 113 campers and 60 junior/SALT staff at the same time. 

More handicap facilities are needed.
Our Jesus Cares summer camper numbers are increasing; since 2015 we've had over 50 Jesus Cares campers (with a 1:1 camper/counselor ratio).  We need lodging and bathroom facilities that better accommodate handicapped individuals, not just for Jesus Cares campers but year-round guests as well.

More meeting space is needed.
When we host two or more retreat groups at a time, we do not have enough meeting areas.  Our only large group meeting area at the present time is our Dining Hall.  The past few years we have lost out on booking several large retreat groups who would have come if we had more areas for large group meetings and breakout sessions.

The solution is a new lodge and it's almost finished!

More lodging
Each floor of this two floor lodge has been designed to have two sleeping rooms with one meeting room between them.  Each sleeping room will have bunk beds to accommodate 12 people.

More handicap facilities
Each sleeping room will have its own handicap accessible bathroom.  This cabin will be built into a hill so each floor will have access from the outside.

More meeting space
At thist time, the upper level will not be finished with the sleeping rooms; instead it will be kept open so that we have a large meeting area, with the option to add the two sleeping rooms at a later time when the conference center with its meeting rooms is built.

Camp Phillip's new lodge provides more lodging, handicap facilities and meeting space.
