Camp Kamassa

Camp Kamassa is a 326-acre camp under construction in Copiah County that will be Mississippi’s first all-accessible camp for children and adults with special needs.  Southwest Electric is proud to partner with Mississippi’s Toughest Kids Foundation to help build Camp Kamassa.  We, along with all of the rural electric cooperatives across the state, donated materials and labor to build three miles of power lines to bring three-phase power to Camp Kamassa.  For more information about Mississippi’s Toughest Kids Foundation and Camp Kamassa, please visit their website.

 

Southwest Electric is committed to helping the communities we serve.  We are proud to help Mississippi’s Toughest Kids Foundation make Camp Kamassa a reality.

Cabin Artwork

Calling all artists!  Do you love to draw or paint?

 

Camp Kamassa is ready to start decorating the cabins where campers will sleep while enjoying Mississippi’s first camp dedicated to kids and adults with special needs.  They are asking for artwork on canvas approximately 18” x 20” of any Mississippi outdoor scene such as forest animals, wildflowers, trees, rivers and streams.  They will hang over each bed.  If you would like to donate, please contact Jeremy Smith at 601-437-1359 for more information.

This beautiful abstract painting of a deer was donated by Melanie Bunch from Woodville. She was the first to donate artwork to be displayed in the cabins at Camp Kamassa.
