PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. — When campers arrive for the first time next summer at Camp Southern Ground, the Georgia camp founded by GRAMMY Award-winning artist Zac Brown for children of all abilities ages 7-17, they’ll have plenty of hot water, thanks to a donation of a commercial-grade Rinnai Tankless Rack System with three tankless water heaters.
The gift from Rinnai America Corporation will provide an endless supply of hot water for the concessions area, restrooms and shower facilities in the Camp’s 12,000-square-foot Shade and Play Pavilion, which is under construction.
As one of the camp’s “Core Essential” buildings, the Shade and Play Pavilion will provide campers a place for recreational play shaded from the hot summer sun. The pavilion will include a multi-use court for basketball and other sports, a storage room and a patio area for hosting cookouts and gatherings.
The Shade and Play Pavilion will also play an important role in supporting the camp’s 15-acre organic farm and educating campers about the importance of proper nutrition and the health benefits of organic eating. Its commercial concessions kitchen and walk-in coolers will provide cleaning and storage areas when fruits and vegetables are harvested, as well as support the camp’s farm-to-table approach to cooking.
Rinnai Tankless Rack Systems provide energy, space and cost savings compared to traditional domestic water boilers and storage tank water heaters in commercial applications like hotels, restaurants, schools, healthcare and multifamily housing. More details about these models, which are available for applications ranging from 199,000 Btu up to 4.9 million Btu through Rinnai wholesale distribution, can be found at rinnai.us/commercial.
