For the fourth year of Camp Cadiz, more than 60 students from the Seventh Grade and up and more than 30 adults are participating in local mission projects this week, with the goal of completing 30 by Friday.

Jason Strickland, Associate Pastor at Cadiz Baptist Church, said some groups are delivering prepackaged meals for seniors, while other groups are visiting the Trigg County Senior Citizens Center, Barkley Plantation, Trigg Manor and Shady Lawn, both of which are new activities.

Youths participating in Camp Cadiz are also building wheelchair ramps and decks, doing yard work, said Strickland, who also talked about how Camp Cadiz started in 2010. He said he and Mike McGill started talking about it, and that Carl Heckmann and Mark Frye were “instrumental” in getting it started.

Strickland also talked about a student who participated last year who still sees the fruits of her labor.

“I have a student at Cadiz Baptist who did it for the first time last year, and she had never done anything with construction, and she ended up doing a construction project,” Strickland said. “The project is actually near her house, so she drives by it every day and sees that project, that thing she built. And so she’s proud of that. She did something she’s never done before.”
