Revisioning a Summer Camp in the Hills

The Historic Montvale Springs is located at the end of Montvale Road at the base of Chilhowee Mountain in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.  The site is rich in history, having served as a resort and spring water spa for over 100 years and then as a summer camp for 50 more years.  The ETCDC was involved in several projects on the site, so we were enthusiastic about helping a worthy organization such as Harmony Adoptions of Tennessee to continue to use the area to its fullest potential.

The ETCDC provided a site plan for the entire 400+ acres, documenting existing structures, past structures, and roads. A more detailed and rendered plan of the central campus area was also prepared. Harmony Adoptions can use these plans as they move forward to rebuild, refurbish. and revitalize Camp Montvale. Their dream is to share this effort with community and friends to strengthen families touched by adoption. This project will result in Montvale continuing to serve the youth and families of East Tennessee for years to come.
