For many in the BMA, Daniel Springs Baptist Camp has become a place of fun and spiritual growth. From the many youth camps throughout the summer, to the retreats and conferences during the rest of the year, countless lives have been impacted by what God has done through the camp.
Not only has God used the camp to bless people for over fifty years, but he is also continuing to grow the camp to bless more people in the future.
The main project on the horizon for Camp Director Jason Prewitt is a new retreat center. This center will be renovated from a building that is a men’s dorm, and it will be transformed in to a facility with a kitchen, sleeping quarters, and a worship gathering space.
“We were so blessed to have the Senior Adult Conference help kick off the fundraising portion of this project,” said Prewitt. “We are wanting to keep the cost as low as we can, but also make the space as nice as possible for any group to use. Eventually, we would like to house women’s and men’s retreats and church group retreats.”
The Daniel Springs staff is planning on constructing the retreat center in stages as they raise the funds, with help from The Master’s Builders.
“The Master’s Builders is a group of retired men and women in the BMA who help missions and churches get their facilities ready for use,” explained Prewitt. “We have partnered with them for several years. They come to the camp and stay in their travel trailers, helping with building renovations.”
If the funds for the new retreat center exceed the need, the excess funds will be used for other Daniel Springs renovation projects, such as cabin upgrade work and kitchen upgrades. This will help with upkeep from the general wear and tear on the buildings.
