1963 News Article - Opening of WKYC 

The charter, impressive with its Official Seal of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, opens with the words, "To aide parents in the development of their children spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically through Bible teaching in a Christian environment." With these words as a starting point, the directors of the Western Kentucky Youth Camp have developed a fine campsite near Marion, Kentucky, for young people of the churches of Christ to enjoy the slender of the West Kentucky countryside along with the power and beauty of God's word as taught by dedicated Christians. 

The campsite contains more than 40 acres, with access to some 50 acres more of rolling meadows and shady woodland. On the campsite there is a large dining hall, two completely furnished bathhouses and 5 completed cabins each of which will house 12 students and a counselor.
