HELP US FIX THE CAMP POOL!
The camp pool was built in 1985. With the loving hard work of volunteers and camp staff they have kept the pool going long after its scheduled time for a full resurfacing.
This summer a chunk of the surface broke off, making it necessary for us to resurface the entire pool. This new surface should extend the life of the pool another 50 years. Then many, many more campers can enjoy cooling off in the pool while enjoying their time at Poplar Point Camp.
WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE POOL?
Every concrete pool has to be resurfaced every 25-30 years. The camp pool has not been resurfaced in over 37 years!
The camp needs to drain the pool and have a professional pool company resurface the entire pool. We believe the best course of action is to do this work with a company that will lay a fiberglass surface in the pool that should last 50 years. This option is also cheaper than redoing the same concrete surface.
The camp is also fundraising an additional small amount to build an outdoor pavilion with bathrooms at our athletic fields to develop a more appealing and functional space for groups to use.
Poplar Point Camp is an independently incorporated non-profit Christian Camp, that is a managed by a board of directors. It was founded by the former Southern District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance and continues to have a close relationship with the new Alliance South District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. We rent out our facilities for both summer camp and school year retreats. We would love to host a week of summer camp for your Church or group.
We exist to provide an excellent place for churches to meet for camps, retreats, picnics, etc. and enjoy God’s creation. Families and civic groups are welcome to use our facilities as scheduling allows.
