Maple Springs Bible Camp
The Maple Springs Bible Camp’s new staff housing building allows staff to serve the camp year-round for generations to come.
For the Maple Springs Bible Camp, a new staff housing building was needed to house staff year-round and expand programming for campers. That meant the building had to be safe and homey. Working with expert electric technicians from Kimco, the new successful building allows for:
- More weeks of camp, which is more time for the kids to enjoy the outdoors.
- More unique camps, like the Fall Mini Camp and Wilderness Camp.
- Allows year-round staff to keep camp safe and well-maintained.
The Kimco Solution
In order to create a secure, comfortable housing building for the Maple Springs Bible Camp staff, Kimco tapped into their electrical expertise. There’s no place like home and units each include a standard electric range, clothes dryer, air conditioning, gas furnace and hot water tank. Additional work included:
- Each unit has 4-inch pot lights, a mix of decorative fixtures in finished areas and keyless fixtures in the unfinished basement.
- Each side has a 200 amp 120/240 volt combo panel with 100 amp sub feeds to basement units.
- Receptacles installed to code for spacing and use of fast-acting GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupting) protected circuits, where applicable.
- Other circuits have AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupting) circuit breakers.
- Cat 5 cables, RG6 Coaxial and fiber cabling means strong and stable internet and communications.
- Carbon dioxide and smoke detectors in hallways and bedrooms as per local building codes.
- Kitchens with under and above counter LED lighting.
A registered charity, Maple Springs Bible Camp offers affordable summer camps that give kids a chance to enjoy the outdoors, make friends and try out a variety of fun activities, just outside of Peachland. The fees are kept as low as possible, and a new staff housing building, completed in 2021, made it possible for the camp to offer more services to campers, year-round.
