Groundbreaking on a new $20 million dollar non-denominational Christian youth ministry located in Lampe took place this week.

Clearwater Cove, which will operate under the arm of Young Life, is being constructed on 276 acres off of Majestic View Lane along Table Rock Lake.

"We've raised the seed money necessary to get started," said Terry Swenson, director of communications for Young Life.

"Clearwater Cove will be a another of Young Life’s premier camp properties, welcoming kids from a nine-state area to a life-changing camp experience."

The plan is for campers to be on the land, which was purchased 10 years ago, by the summer of 2015.  Young Life currently operates 32 camps worldwide that cater to junior high and high school students.
