An international Christian ministry says it is planning a $21.5 million expansion of its facilities on Table Rock Lake in southwest Missouri.

Young Life, based in Colorado Springs, Colo., said Wednesday its new development near Lampe will allow the organization and other groups to schedule events beyond the traditional summer camps.

The Springfield News-Leader reports the organization bought 276 acres on the lake in 2000 for $2.5 million. A ground-breaking for the expansion is planned for Tuesday.

The expansion will add an office, dining hall, pool and bath house, two dormitories and a covered basketball court. Young Life estimates it will serve 200 students and leaders a week beginning in June 2015.

A master plan includes a third phase adding 10 more buildings, although no timeline has been set.
