Case Study: Camp Jackson

Camp Jackson
Nashville, TN

CCE designed a master plan for Camp Jackson, an 86-acre multi-use facility owned and operated by the Tennessee District of the Assemblies of God. Pending approvals from the TDEC Safe Dams Program, State of Tennessee NPDES, and local government, CCE will maximize the use of the entire property to meet the following client goals:

Increase housing capacity and update camp aesthetic

  • Expanded housing from 368 to 1,000 campers
  • Expanded cafeteria facilities, staff housing and additional conference lodging
  • Unified architectural style

Expand recreational activities

  • A new recreation center and a new gymnasium/auditorium for multiple indoor activities

Enhance outdoor activities

  • Wilderness activities including camping, hiking, biking, archery, etc.
  • Lake-based activities including swimming, zip-lines, canoeing, paddle-boats, and fishing

Create a multi-group facility

  • Conference lodge, staff and education center can operate independently from, or in conjunction with the campground facilities
  • Lodging wings able to easily accommodate many different sized groups of 25 or more
  • Diverse indoor, outdoor, individual and group activities
