Pinecliff Camp to Build ADA Accessible Bathhouse

Four years ago, Pinecliff Camp and Retreat Center’s Board of Directors and Site Committee decided to build an Americans with Disabilities ACT (ADA) compliant bathhouse. Plans were drawn up by an Architect Engineer, an engineering report was prepared by an Engineering firm, and a building permit was issued by Summit County, Utah. The project site was cleared, and a sewer line was installed. The project was placed on hold in 2019 due to the lack of funding; the following year the Covid-19 pandemic hit and this project has been on hold ever since.

With a grant made possible by the Association of UMC Camping Retreat Ministries (UMCRM), we now have the opportunity to complete this project. We are requesting volunteers for certain portions of the construction.​It is expected that site preparation work and pour of the foundation will be performed by a general contractor (TBD); rough plumbing, electrical and HVAC work will be performed by licensed professionals (TBD); however, the balance of the construction will be performed by various volunteer organizations (Oklahoma Mission, NOMADS, and UTAH UMC groups). Board members will oversee the project throughout its construction.


Those who have construction experience and want to help build it are requested to visit Pinecliff's website (https://www.pinecliffcamputah.org/volunteer.html) for more information. There you will find a Questionnaire. The downloadable form can be emailed back. The address is at the bottom of the form. The pdf form can be filled out on a computer then emailed, or it can be printed out and filled in by hand, then scanned and emailed back. Not all jobs are construction oriented. Site support such as cooking, food prep, cleaning is also needed.


Thank you for your support!
