Statement Regarding Camp Elk Shoals
January 5, 2015
For Public Release From the Board of Directors, Camp Elk Shoals, Inc. January 5, 2015 For many years, Camp Elk Shoals has provided a place of faith-directed recreation for persons of all ages, races, and faiths. However, in the last several years, the Camp has been financially unable to provide for all of its expenses, including necessary maintenance of our facilities. We have been thankful for the many supporters who have shared time at Camp Elk Shoals and provided funds for the new additions. Since July, 2012, the Western North Carolina Conference and Camp Board have been working together to find a way to make the camp viable and self-sustaining. Even with much thought and consulting assistance, we have not been able to find our way to maintain the operations of the Camp without great external support. Therefore, the Board has made the difficult decision to sell the camp property to the Conference. At this time, we are still in negotiations regarding this transaction that require confidentiality. We will provide you with further information as it is available.
