The original "Camp Ponderosa" was built of rustic western cedar lumber in the mid-1960's by two psychology professors from the University of Alabama.
In 1976, Miss Bess Robertson discovered the property for sale, and CBM Ministries of North AL purchased the 80-acre camp, complete with 6 cabins, dining hall/kitchen, 2 small guest cabins, and craft building.
Mr. Glenn Miller served as the first Camp Director from 1976 to 1999. Jeff Nelson was one of the first campers in 1976 and became the Director in 1999.
