Camp Cowen Announces New Campaign for the Sunny Day Leadership Center
The Sunny Day Leadership Center will be a great addition to the West Virginia Baptist Camp at Cowen facility. It will be a full-size gymnasium, along with a large meeting room, showers and a kitchenette. This activity building will help the Baptist camp meet the constantly changing needs of each camp.
The school calendar continues to squeeze the summer and the camping ministry is trying to change to continue to reach as many campers as possible. Part of the dream is for the facility to be equipped to handle two camps at one time. A possible example would be 150 fifth and sixth grade campers and a high school camp with an additional 150 more at the same time. This new facility will allow them to share pool and meal times!
The West Virginia Baptist Camp at Cowen Board of Directors continues to plan for the Sunny Day Leadership Center. Prayerfully, as of this publication, there are bulldozers making the ground level for the building. Our hope is by August 2016 we can begin construction. Preliminary numbers of the project cost will be $1.5 million. At right, you can see the renderings of the outside floor plans that will include showers. Notice we have expanded the plans by ten feet to accommodate more seating, showers and areas for ministry in the gymnasium.
The campaign is beginning now! Please consider adding this project to your personal and church budgets. These improvements will add more space to reach more campers and continue to be the place "Where people meet Jesus and grow as His disciples in a community of faith."
