Construction is moving along swiftly on a new chapel at Camp Gruber. More than 200 volunteers have worked over the past couple of weeks on the project, which is being funded entirely through private donations.

The shell of the building is about 75 percent complete on the 10,500 square foot chapel. Interior work is also underway.
