An excellent way to remember or honor someone in a special way is to create a memorial for them. At Mahaffey Camp, we have established a memorial fund for approved projects so that loved ones may be honored or remembered through memorial contributions to the camp.
Mahaffey Camp has a long tradition and rich heritage of providing a campground for generations to gather and be blessed with the Gospel message. Since the early days of canvas tents, the camp has renovated much of its grounds (though the setting still remains rustic). Today, a renovated dorm including restrooms, a modern Dining Hall, and three RV areas grace the grounds. Many of these improvements to the campground have only been made possible through the memorial gifts made to the camp.
Some of the projects that have been made a reality with the help of memorial contributions are:
The Gazebo and Water Fountain in the grove area
The Dining Building, including equipment purchases
The Recreation Field
Dorm 5 Interior and Exterior Renovations
New Camp Entrance Sign
Mahaffey Camp has been able to impact countless lives over many years. With the ability to upgrade and develop our facilities because of memorial contributions, we are able to provide better accommodations and experiences for all those who visit the camp.
With the establishment of the “Continuing the Impact” Capital Campaign, we have been able to add additional improvements to the camp, including three new restroom facilities and the bookstore enclosure. The biggest project that the camp is currently overseeing is the construction of the Children’s Ministry Building (for more information on this project, visit the Children’s Ministry Building Page). All memorials received in 2010 and thereafter will be commemorated in the Children’s Ministry Building once it has been built and completed.
Gifts may be made in memory or in honor of a loved one at any time during the year. For additional details or to discuss a designation for your gift for an approved project, please contact the Mahaffey Camp Director/Developer, Mr. Edward Depp at 814-277-5544.
We are sincerely grateful for the memorial contributions that have been made and that we continue to receive. It is a loving way to honor or remember someone, and it greatly assists the camp as we carry out our mission of reaching others with the Gospel and teaching them about the Lord.
