The Crossroads of America Boy Scout Council dedicated a new shelter for Camp Krietenstein at noon on Saturday. The ceremony honored local veterans of foreign wars and supporters who have made contributions to their communities and have helped make the construction of the new Camp Krietenstein waterfront shelter possible.
The new shelter will enhance the experiences and services available to Boy Scouts during upcoming and future summer camps. Camp Krietenstein includes a five-acre lake, seven campsites, 150-person dining lodge, hiking trails, archery area, rifle range, chapel and parade field.
The structure stands today thanks to the Lawton Byrum VFW Post 972, VFW Post 1127, Henry Ozok, Carpenters Union No. 133, NRK Inc., Overhead Door in Terre Haute and the many volunteers who donated their time.
