Here we grow again . . . . . Land Expansion!

Camp Ne-O-Tez Land Acquisition

In 2003, we purchased 10 acres of land behind the Pine Lodge and the Stone Castle, but we have been hoping to acquire more acreage behind Cabins 1 and 3, all the way to Inspiration Point. This would provide a much-needed protective buffer from potential commercial development in this area of Jefferson County.

Last fall, Camp was offered the opportunity to acquire additional land along our eastern property line. On February 19th, we closed on the purchase of 27 acres of land. This property was acquired at a very attractive price, and the funds were provided predominantly by incremental donations, allowing us to forego taking on any debt or using general fund money. What a blessing from the Lord!

While most of our supporters and summer campers and staff have not been aware of the previous property boundaries, we see this land as one more important investment in Camp’s future. May God continue to provide for Ne-O-Tez in incredible ways, as we train our youth to walk with Christ.
