EBC building will be ready for 2014

Comments

The Estevan Bible Camp (EBC) is looking forward to being in their new building for the 2014 camp season.

Construction has been on hold recently, said EBC board chair Travis Frank, but the only work that remains is pouring the concrete, which will be tackled once the snow melts, and some framing in the interior.

Rotary Park, which is in the heart of Woodlawn Regional Park, has been the EBC's home for many years. EBC's new building will be in Woodlawn's northeast corner, near the Mets Field baseball diamond.

Cabins will have to be relocated from Rotary Park to the EBC's new grounds.

Frank said the new building's biggest difference will be in the kitchen, which has been specifically designed for camp needs, as opposed to weddings, banquets and other events that happen at Rotary Park's hall during the summer months.

“Not all of the appliances will be ready to go for the first year, but we'll have most of what we need, including a much bigger stove, a proper walk-in cooler and freezer … as well as proper bathroom and shower facilities,” said Frank.

The camp will also have a more private setting now that they're further away from the centre of the park, he said.

All eight of the EBC's cabins will be moved to the area surrounding the new building. Three more cabins are being constructed, and could be ready for the start of the camping season.

A grand opening will be held in June.

Those involved with the camp have been fundraising to pay for a portion of the new building. Frank said they have raised about $50,000; their goal is $75,000.

“The $75,000 will cover most of what we need for our share,” said Frank. “We already had some funds that we brought in through PDAP (the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program) and other projects.”

The new building can be used by other groups throughout the year. EBC gets the first shot at dates during their camp season in the summer. Scouts and Girl Guide groups will use the building in the winter months.
