Buffalo Mountain Camp
Organized by: Paul and Ron Codispoti
Event Name: Swim for Them 2015
EVENT DATE Aug 29, 2015
Buffalo Mountain Camp was an outreach of the Kingsport and Johnson City Districts of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church. For many decades, the camp hosted children and youth from Northeast TN. The campers were surrounded by the love of God supplied by the staff and volunteers. The beauty of Buffalo Mountain provided a great backdrop for many of the campers to commit or re-commit their lives to Christ.
In August of 2012, Buffalo Mountain Camp was washed away by flood waters that hit the Dry Creek area. Cabins were destroyed, the trees were downed and Allison Lodge was nothing but a mud pit. The infrastructure of the camp was beyond repair and therefore Buffalo Mountain Camp as we know it, was no more. This year, a decision was made to purchase property next to Bays Mountain to become the new home of Buffalo Mountain Camp. A new name has yet to be announced. The money raised through this fundraiser will go directly to the capital fund for the new camp.
If you would like to avoid the website fees, you can make out a check to Buffalo Mountain Camp and hand it to one of the Buckeye Boys.
