OAK HILL, W.Va. (AP) - A nonprofit Christian youth organization is planning to open a state camp in Nicholas County.

Scott Berg, the state director of Young Life West Virginia, tells The Charleston Daily Mail (https://bit.ly/1evfPuc) the camp is in the final phase of funding.

It will be situated in the Oak Hill area along the Gauley River gorge and will host nearly 7,000 teenagers and young adults year-round.

Berg says there’s no definitive opening date for the camp, but he hopes to have campers as soon as next year.

Initially the camp will be structured for smaller groups, but Berg says the site will become a resort-style camp the size of a small college campus.

Young Life aims to teach the Gospel in a way adolescents can understand while being among friends and adult mentors.
