Curly's Chapel

Curly's Chapel is an open air chapel south of the activity flat completed in 1982 out of wood and stone. It took campers and staff several years to complete it. It is used mostly for Friday night Candlelight serives, occasionally for weddings, and formerly for Wednesday night Vespers until that tradition stopped in 2010.

It was dedicated in honor of former Camp Director, founder of the Candlelight service, and builder of camp's original chapel, Raymond L. "Curly" Johnson, by his widow Mary. 125 people attended the dedication in 1982.

Today, a wooden triangle has replaced the old steel triangle used to hold the candlelight candles, and additional benches have been added to the sides of the chapel to accommodate an expanding camper population. The original railroad tie benches have been replaced by modern wooden benches.
