February 2, 2017

These facilities are located among the Irish Hills in Jackson County, including the 240-acre Stoney Lake. About 17,000 people visit each year, from all over the world. The main building, Malachi Hall, is 16,000 square feet and heated with forced air using the heat from a pair of outdoor cordwood boilers. Fuel is supplied by camp personnel and volunteers from woodlands on the property. Additionally, the system supplies the hot water needed for the kitchens and other uses. The system uses a 1600-gallon thermal storage tank.
