The new cabin at Camp Chilhowee

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Shoreline New Hampshire & Maine

My wife and I are members of the Beaver Creek Cumberland Presbyterian Church (BCCPC) in Powell, Tennessee where I am currently serving a term as a Session Member (basically the Session is the Board of Directors of our church).

Our church, like other Cumberland Presbyterian churches, participates in sending the youth to a retreat at the church owned Camp Chilhowee, a 106 acre retreat in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. There are several cabins, an amphitheater, mess hall, swimming pool, and lots of beautiful grounds to hike, play, worship, and enjoy.

We feel it’s important to provide this setting away from the distractions of modern life to allow the youth to bond together, to reflect, and to find their own, closer relationship to God.

I’m not sure when the buildings at Camp Chilhowee were built, but after many years of ‘enjoyment’ by rambunctious youth and the passage of time the individual cabins were getting pretty used up.

So in 2007 we formed a committee to rebuild one of Camp Chilhowee’s cabins. Most of these cabins accommodate 16 campers in bunk beds in a dormitory style and have one bathroom.

I’m happy to say I was on the cabin committee and that project is now completed. On Sunday afternoon, April 19th many church members made the trek to Camp Chilhowee to dedicate our new cabin.

Church members gather at the Camp Chilhowee amphtheatre to dedicate our new cabin. Several adult church members testified to their experiences at Camp Chilhowee in their youth. For some their grandchildren will be the third generation of that family to attend.
