The Carwheel Lounge at Streamside was named to honor the relentless passion of Ed & Ellen Carwheel to have Philadelphia’s children experience Streamside camp. This fireplace room with a view is used as our staff lounge during summer camp and as a 2nd meeting room for retreats holding up to 75 people. It can be set up auditorium style with chairs, conference style with tables or lounge style with couches, end tables and chairs.

Over one weekend in October, those furnishings were transformed by a volunteer group from Mountain Stream Baptist Church. After careful measurements were taken, new handmade cushions were brought to replace the worn ones. The wooden furniture was sanded down to reveal a wonderful distressed wood look and then sealed to protect from heavy camp use.

This project was all their idea and we are very grateful they thought of it! Do you have any ideas you can make happen at Streamside?
