Status: Completed 1998 One of Camp Crestridge Alumnae and Friends shining achievements at camp has been the gift of the pavilion....
The first large contribution of CCAF was a two-level pavilion and deck located between the chapel and the gym. This structure was entirely funded by alumnae and friends' contributions, and was erected by volunteer labor supplied by Ridgecrest Conference Center over the fall and winter of 1998-99. It was dedicated to Willard K. "Daddy" Weeks at the 1999 reunion and a stone fireplace was added in the spring of 2003, funded chiefly by Ruth and Norvel Lee Burkett.
In 2002, the alumnae covered the cost of adding a large deck to the new Craft building.
Renovation and expansion of the camp chapel was accomplished in time for the 2005 sessions through our "Reach for the Stars Campaign." This ambitious project added enough extra seating to ensure that the chapel can comfortably seat the entire camp and upgraded the lighting and the stage area.
In 2006 a custom-made playground was built in a common area of Chippewa/Chickasaw Hill.
Our most ambitious project to date was a two-story building to house the camp store and the CCAF museum. Completed in time for 2012 camp sessions, the new Beehive provides more space plus much-needed extra bathrooms. At a cost upwards of $150,000, this project is the result of the generosity of alums, friends, parents of campers, and Lifeway.
Our latest project was to raise $30,000 to help fund the building of a new Infirmary that was completed in 2020.
