Friends of ASCCA: Take a Tour Around Camp ASCCA with Chad!

Come and take a visial tour with me! Near the parking lot is the Oscar Dunn Environmental Center. When you first walk in you will enter the Auditorium. The museum part is in the center and the lab room is on the right. In the lab, you will find some creatures like Terry the Bearden Dragon. After leaving the Dunn Center you can turn around, take a right, and you will practically be at the Archery and Kickball Field. In the summer you will take a people mover down a dirt road and you arrive at the fishing pond and the LPR Zipline. Looking over the pond is the new Cone-Roswal Big Swing. Helmets and harnesses are required for LPR and the Big Swing.

The Dining Hall is where we have all of our meals and sometimes dances! Every morning we do flag raising outside the Dining Hall before breakfast. Near the Administration Building is the Horseback Riding area and you will meet the horse named Skip. The Demo Farm is not far from Horseback, and it includes goats, donkeys, chickens, cows, and rabbits. The BCK4T (Back Forty), where we have our concerts and play arcade games, is next door to the Demo Farm.

The gym/pavilion is near the Health Center, in the gym there is a game room, a wii room, basketball goals, and a balcony that overlooks the pool. When you get to the pool you take a swimming test, if you pass you get a wristband and if not then you have to wear a life jacket for your safety. There is also a waterside and the lakefront where you can go tubing. On the other side of tubing you will see the boat dock where the Tritoon boat is parked for boat rides.

All of the cabins are located close together. There are cabins for the boys and the girls. Near the cabins is Lion Lodge where we will have indoor programs sometimes if the weather is bad. Camp also has “The Big Stage” which is where concerts are held from time to time. Last year that’s where we had ASCCA-Palooza. The OutPost is not far from the Big Stage or the cabins. The Outpost is a cool spot for our weekly talent show and also Arts and Crafts throughout the week. Lastly, is the Zipline and the Ziptower. During both of these activities you have to wear a harness and helmet and follow directions closely to keep you and everyone around you safe.
