Property Design & Aesthetic
WHY IS CAMP BEING REFERRED TO AS “VILLAGES”?
“Villages” is a camp term that refers to the lodging groupings of girls and boys cabins. It is not meant to be used as a way to talk about the scope of the project. They are small,1,250 square foot cabins separated by gender.
IS CAMP RUNNING A “STORE” ON THE PROPERTY?
Anyone that has been to camp knows that our “store” refers to the camp supplies area. We have anything that may be needed during the camp experience, at no charge. Often campers arrive without sleeping bags, proper shoes, and necessities like toothpaste, shampoo, and deodorant. This “store” supplies those items for free. Most of the items are donated to us and everything is free for the campers. This is not a “commercial” store.
HOW MANY BUILDINGS WILL BE ON SITE?
25-30. This includes cabins and facilities such as a dining hall, reflection center, medical facility, welcome center and nature center. This is the same amount of buildings that we currently utilize at the Cathedral Pines property.
WHAT WILL THE BUILDINGS LOOK LIKE?
All buildings are single story, understated cabins and buildings designed to blend with the environment.
WILL THE CAMP BE A BLIGHT ON THE LANDSCAPE?
No. The camp will be built to complement the surrounding aesthetics with a rural feel. Pictures of the proposed buildings are in our CUP application and are located on this website.
WILL CAMP PRODUCE LIGHT POLLUTION?
No. We will follow the dark sky ordinance.
WILL YOU DISTURB THE NEIGHBORS?
No. More than 90% of the 260 acres will be open space to create ample noise and sight buffers with the neighbors. We will follow all county noise ordinances.
HOW BIG IS THE AMPHITHEATER AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR?
The amphitheater is where we have three campfires per camp week. We build confidence and hope through laughter and support around that fire. It will have informal bench seating for a maximum of 200 people, as stated in our CUP.
WHY IS THE DINING HALL SO BIG?
The Dining Hall serves multiple purposes at camp. Aside from the obvious meal times, this building serves as our indoor activity hall during rainy weather. Summer weather can bring afternoon showers and we have an abundance of indoor activities to continue the fun. The dining hall would also serve as emergency shelter in the case of wildfire or other emergencies. The additional side dining room (48 seats) was added for cooking activities, a meeting space, or small dining room for smaller groups. At no time will CRG exceed its conditioned maximum of 200 individuals on-site.
