Our maintenance crew is hard at work on the new Oregon Pavilion. The pavilion is not like a typical pole barn, it is a large timber building and will fit nicely in the pioneer settlement. Eventually there will be three-foot high stone pillars that will surround the base of the posts. The stonework will match the stone around the fireplace. The new Oregon cabins will have the same stone pillars in the front side of the porch.
The pavilion should be able to fit approximately 200 people under the roof. The primary use of the pavilion will be for our Summer Day Camp Program. Day camp will use this pavilion as one of their main meeting areas. It will also be a great place to stay out of the rain!
Outdoor Education and Weekend Retreats will use this facility for a variety of things throughout the year. This pavilion will serve as another option for groups to meet, participate in activities or just hang out. Groups will gather for campfire programs and picnics inside.
The project should be finished by March and ready for Summer Camp 2010!
