If you haven’t been to visit the camp in a while, then you need to make plans to come and take a look. It is amazing what has been accomplished on the grounds here in the last year.
We built Lake Papa Crow in honor of Tommy and Linda Crow of Dardanelle. It is just behind the cabins you encounter as you enter the camp on the land we purchased 3 years ago. The lake itself is approximately 3 acres with a separate swimming pond beside it. We supply fresh water into the swimming pond to create a fun and safe swimming area for the little kids. This lake was funded by the Crow family, their church, and their friends.
We built a large addition to our playground with a portion of the Don Helms campaign. The ground level was completed before summer of 2015, but this year we added a second story playhouse. It is truly an enjoyable experience to watch children running up those stairs and all around the “fortress” or whatever their imaginations have conjured. The structure itself is board and batten green stained siding and the roof is made of cedar shingles that ride over an arched cedar log gable. The windows have skewed mullions, which along with the handmade cedar railings complete the whimsical look. We have a goal to continue to add elements to it this each year.
