Camp Meeting, 2013-Part II

Camp Meeting, 2013-Part II
Each year, I share with you in this space what I learn as I have the opportunity to go to camp meetings in other conferences.

This year, from the end of May, until the end of June, I had the privilege of visiting 5 camp meetings, the 2 that we have in South Central, plus, Georgia-Cumberland, Southeastern and Allegheny West.  I had awonderful time; I was on a Camp Meeting “high!”

It started in Georgia-Cumberland on the campus of Southern Adventist University.  It is very significant that though Georgia-Cumberland operates an outstanding camping facility, Cohutta Springs, which we used many times when I was Youth Director, they had their main camp meeting on the campus of Southern Adventist University.

That may seem strange, but the truth of the matter is that several of the things needed to have camp meeting, e.g. , a very large meeting facility, large numbers of rooms for housing, etc., are not needed to operate a campground.

For example, I am guessing that there are about 150 hotel rooms at Cohutta Springs; we would need that many rooms just to house our staff, then, we would have to house our campers in a separate facility.

The problem is:

      A.           That facility would cost a ton to build

      B.           That facility would only be needed for camp meeting, BUT,

      C.           It would have to maintained (heated, cooled, etc.) for the entire year

The largest meeting facility at Cohutta (at least in the days when we were using it) seated about 500 people, max. We would need something that would 2-3 thousand, plus another facility for our young adults and another one for young people and, another one for our children.

Yet rarely, if ever, would you need all of those facilities for anything other than camp […]
