The community of Cole Camp has enjoyed a long history of creating, staging and presenting a wide variety of community and visitor activities which have established Cole Camp as one of the more unique destinations in Missouri. A historic town on the National Registry of Historic Places, Cole Camp welcomes thousands of visitors every year.
Given the natural attractiveness of Cole Camp for special events and visitors, community leaders have come together to create the Cole Camp Community Center. This new facility will provide the community an excellent destination of social events and special occasions. The Community Center will also be home for the Cole Camp Senior Center.
Our project targets a wide range of users including all residents in Cole Camp, Missouri, visitors and persons seeking senior services from surrounding areas. Our city serves a small but growing population of 1,121 (2010 Census projection). Demonstrating the need to serve a wide range of services for its citizens, Cole Camp is home to 30% of their residents over the age of 65 year and 22% under 18 years. Thus the need for specialized services and facilities targeting each of these diverse population demographics is apparent.
