Facilities: General Overview

General Overview
At Grand Oaks, the ages of our facilities vary widely, and we strive to keep each of them well maintained. Grand Oaks holds a special place in the heart of most of our guests. Therefore, they are typically willing to help in the upkeep of “their camp” and are asked to clean any used facilities before departing.

Although there was no “master plan” followed, over the years Grand Oaks was developed in a way that truly makes sense.  Centrally located on the grounds are the major meeting and recreation spaces as well as the facility manager’s home.  For most events, guests can move easily between meeting venues with only a short walk.  The paved recreation court just outside the Dining Hall allows campers and guests to conveniently use it while waiting for a meal or after eating.  The large grassy area outside the Chapel is often used for Frisbee or other games allowing campers and young guests to burn off energy prior to meeting or worship times.
Around the perimeter of the property are the camper cabins, conveniently located so that the girls stay on one side of the campus and the boys on the other!  A unique feature in the history of this camp is that all buildings were developed and are owned by the camp itself, not individual churches.  This allowed continuity in development that often is not the case in similar camps.
When we have seen a need for remodeling the old or building the new, with God’s help we have done our best to meet the needs of our campers.  We believe that you will find this a special place to meet with others and draw closer to our God.
