Mundo Vista spruced up for summer

By Laura T. Rich BR Graphics Editor

Mundo Vista's resident manager Bob Navey has had a busy winter.

In addition to managing fall and winter retreats, Navey and his wife Julie have been coordinating several major improvements to the camp's facilities.

In September 2002 work was begun on a new infirmary to better handle the illnesses and injuries of summer campers.

Original plans called for the facility to be open in three years, but work has been moving at a quick pace and the Naveys hope to have the infirmary open when G.A. camp begins on June 9.

The 1,976 square foot addition is being built onto the existing activity building and will include quarters for the camp's volunteer nurses, a waiting area, examination rooms and rooms for sick or injured campers.

Pastor Pat Cronin of Friendly Avenue Baptist Church in Greensboro is coordinating volunteer work on the project.

The Piedmont Baptist Association has raised funds to cover most of the $100,000 cost. The Rye Foundation of Winston-Salem also made a $17,500 donation to the project.

Campers will notice other changes in the cabins. Two hundred new cots have been installed, replacing those that had been in use since Mundo Vista opened in 1969. The old cots were donated to residents of Asheboro's housing projects and to another youth camp.

New tables and chairs fill the dining hall, giving it a seating capacity of 290, Navey said. Plumbing was replaced in the camp's kitchen and some cooking equipment was updated.

Navey also said that the camp's 30,000-gallon water tank had to be excavated and recoated this winter.

Like the rest of the state, Mundo Vista is recovering from the winter's ice storms. Navey said hundreds of trees were lost and volunteers would be needed in the fall to continue the clean up.
