Facilities Overview

Dormitories – There are 6 completed duplex dormitories.  Each dorm is 2,100 square feet, heated, air-conditioned, and contains bathroom and sleeping accommodations for up to 20 campers and 2 counselors (summer) or adult chaperones (retreats).  Each wing of the dorm has its own separate bathroom.  An activity room connects the two wings of the dorm and provides a great space for small group meetings or activities.  As development continues, CWS will eventually have 12 dormitories and accommodate over 240 campers/guests.

Swimming Pool – The pool is a central recreation feature at CWS.  It has over 5,000 square feet of swimming area and 3 water slides.  All guests will enter through the pool house, which contains bathroom facilities.  The pool has a maximum water depth of 5 feet and a minimum depth of 3 feet.  The smaller circular part of the pool is used for beginning swimmers with a depth of 3-4 feet, and is sectioned off from the larger rectangular area that is designated for more advanced swimmers.  Spending time in the pool will undoubtedly be a highlight of anyone’s time at CWS!

Meeting Room – The meeting room is where all worship and Bible study times occur at CWS.  This heated and air-conditioned building has a seating capacity of 300 people, and is equipped with a raised stage plus audio and video capabilities.  Currently this building doubles as the space for our camp food service.
