The building where guests are greeted appears to be a large building and that is because it is also a horse arena. The facility is not only used by Pine Creek Camp, but is also used by the Purdue Jumping and Horsemanship Team for training.
Immediately behind the arena is a stall barn with 25 stalls for horses. Horses used by the camp in the summer are housed here, however in the off season, some of the space is rented out to various parties for housing their horses.
Fence lined paddocks allow the horses an exercise area, however the paddocks double for hay production for the camp horses.
Once you pass the horse paddocks, the first building you will see is the leadership building. This is the building where all the staff meetings are held, maintenance tools and supplies are stored at this facility and it serves as a guest house for visiting staff members.
After passing the leadership building, the next building is the "Ark". This is a gym that serves as a place for concerts, stage shows, and indoor activities when the weather does not permit outdoor activities to be completed. The building also houses the "camp store" where campers can buy gifts and souvenirs to remember their stay at camp.
This is the view looking from the exercise field toward the dining hall. The dining hall is truly a magnificent structure.
The camp has an olympic sized swimming pool for the campers to enjoy.
Often people ask me how doing the maintenance work and improvements on a camp can be considered mission work. Here is the answer, the camp provides young people with the opportunity to become closer to God and in some cases the camp experience may be their introduction to religious activities and this may just lead to a life long christian experience.
