Camp Development Principles

After construction is complete, Young Life camps are financially self-sufficient. All operational expenses, maintenance, administrative costs and funded depreciation are paid from camp revenue generated by the camper fee. Only major capital projects require fundraising after the initial purchase or construction. We only grow as thoughtful and generous gifts allow.

Young Life camps have a long-standing policy to first raise the funds and then to develop new projects, facilities and amenities. This is so the camp fee that summer and school season guests pay is minimized to reflect true operating costs. This practice also allows us to develop new projects to a standard of excellence.

If you are interested in further information or to make a contribution to the development of Carolina Point please contact our camp manager at 828-513-0828. 

Happening Now

The office is the last project to complete the Carolina Point master plan. It is now located in camp by the dining hall, which makes it much more accessible to our guests. The administrative team and Guest Services will use this office. Our previous office site will be used primarily by the Sites & Facilities team. Construction on the new office was finished recently in May 2020!

Future Projects:

  • Intern Housing (pictured in banner)


The gym (pictured) is in our final phase of development for Carolina Point. As part of our previous club room project, we installed a basketball court adjacent to the club room. We have now completed the gym project by constructing an open air roof structure over the court. This provides good shade for free time activities as well as a good covered space to hold activities when it is raining.
