The sunny day leadership and activity center
Springing from the need for more meeting and activity space at camp, the Sunny Day Leadership and Activity Center is a building project that will allow for new year-round ministry that otherwise could not happen at camp. The facility will include a gymnasium with the proper seating and restroom facilities to accommodate campers in the summer and teams and church groups in the fall, winter and spring.
Who is this facility for?
This facility is intended to be used by campers during the camp season and by rental groups throughout the rest of the year. The building will be equipped to do leadership training and ministry through athletic training and competitions. It will be a prime place for churches and associations to have retreats to grow together.
How much needs to be raised to have the building built?
The goal we have to hit before the building can commence is $1 million. To-date, we have already raised over a quarter of the total amount of the project.
why do we need this building?
The new facility will sit across from the Covered Campfire on the road leading into the camp. The physical location of the camp will allow it to be utilized during camp season and the rest of the year by rental groups. Having a facility that can be used regardless of weather conditions will position the camp to be a place to do ministry year-round.
How you can help:
Cowen’s leaders want to position the camp to become far more intentional about developing leaders for today and tomorrow. Our nation, our homes, schools, businesses and public institutions cry out for leadership, principled leadership, honest leadership, biblically-based leadership. Camp Cowen wants to be used of God to address this leadership challenge. You can help make this vision a reality. The new Vision is to establish a Leadership Training Center at Camp Cowen. Due to the expansion in recent years, Camp Cowen is now able to accommodate over 370 people. Adding the leadership training component will help keep the camp running at a fuller capacity throughout the year. The Sunny Day Leadership and Activity Center will have three large classrooms for trainings and a gymnasium for community development. Trainees can incorporate their leadership training into meaningful experiences while at camp.
