MAJOR POOL RENOVATION
MCC has continued with year-to-year upgrades and necessary renovations on our pool, which was built back in the 1960s. However, it has gotten to the point of needing a major overhaul. We have contracted with a company to do the project this winter/spring. The project includes resurfacing the entire pool, replacing all return heads on the bottoms and sides for supply lines, replacing skimmers, and new tile work. (The pump house will also need to be replaced in a second phase.) This project costs about $200,000. Through funds already donated from our Annual Golf Fund Raising Event and other specific donations, we have about $140K earmarked for this project. As of March 2023, we still need about $60K more.

Help Merriwood pay in full for this project so our 1,472 campers can swim this summer, starting early June 2023!
If you’re interested in helping with this important project, donations can be made here or mailed to Merriwood Christian Camp, Business Manager, 9640 Center Grove Church Rd., Clemmons, NC 27012.
UPDATED SITE PLANS AND NEED FOR NEW CABINS
NEW WATER ACTIVITIES ON LAKE
MCC always has areas that need pressure washing. Our playground is one such area, as well as the outside of our motels. If you have abilities in this area, particularly in spring, before summer season begins, please contact MCC!
MCC would love to upgrade the entryway by removing the old “drive under” sign, building a new stone or brick encased sign, and redoing the landscaping. If you or a company you know may have abilities you could donate in this area or potential to donate goods for this project, we’d love to hear from you!
There is always a project going on at MCC that volunteers could help with. If you or your group have abilities in raking, painting, splitting and stacking wood, picking up sticks, etc, we’d love for you to join us and come be involved!
