Camp Keystone to Continue Final Session of Summer in Light of Fire
Published July 22nd, 2013
STARKE, Fla. -An early morning fire Saturday in Starke destroyed the dining hall at the Salvation Army's Camp Keystone, but their final session is set to continue as scheduled.
The 3 million dollar cafeteria is being called a total loss, but it was quote "adequately insured."
Camp staff say that after the fire they were unsure if camp could go on as scheduled this week, but with a little help they're proving, where there's a will there's a way.
Help literally rolled in courtesy of the salvation army emergency services out of Jacksonville ensuring campers will have their full doses of fun and food for the week.
"Luckily the Salvation Army has disaster resources at its disposal any time anyone in the state of Florida, the United States or around the world the Salvation Army can deploy these trucks which are mobile kitchens to help feed others," Camp director, Captain Marion Platt in regard to the services the camp is receiving.
Camp staff are using a smaller multi purpose room to serve as a cafeteria for the 245 kids there this week.
