With the COVID situation, the camp is closed for the season but the construction efforts continue.
We are taking advantage of this time to tear down the old boy’s cabin from World War II and finish the entire new boy’s cabin plan. It will end up having 60 beds. Lord willing, we will have it ready for the 2021 Summer season.
Here is a picture of the demolition progress and the new part of the boy’s cabin. We are looking for donations to allow us to buy new mattresses for the new cabins (the old ones are 15-30 years old). This fall we will offer a way to give electronically but for now you can give by mail.

The final work is being done on the new combined Ezzell Administration Building and Hollis Stevens Infirmary. Here is a picture from the dedication last Saturday. Thanks to all who contributed their money and time.
The 51st year of summer camp started at Peach Valley last Sunday with the Camp Emmeaus session. We are looking forward to another great summer helping kids have fun getting to know God and his creation.
There were some exciting improvements during the off-season. The boy’s bathroom got a new roof, counter, sinks and paint. The finishing touches are being put on the Fordtran cabin for use this summer. It provides comfortable accommodations for 12 with a full bath, and a great A/C system. Thanks to all who helped with their time and donations over the years.
The Board will be meeting in August to prepare for the coming year and beyond. The original cabins are now over 70 years old so replacing these will be a top priority for the coming years.
Thanks to all for continuing the great service to the youth of South Central Texas (and beyond).
