Gable detail for pop.jpg
Knee-brace detail175 viewsThe architects had to create a "language" that would help make the original CYO camp buildings match the new facilities. New metal roofs and extended overhangs with distinctive knee-braces fit the bill in a very "camp lodge" way. I think it's nifty as heck!
Twin chairs176 viewsAn inviting place to sit in the shade and enjoy the views.

Front Office171 viewsThe front office faces a fireplace lounge on one side, and also acts as the checkout for the gift shop (in the background).
Theater lobby230 viewsThe cabin plaques created by former CYO campers over the years are preserved on the hallway walls in this central meeting building.

Wood door pull167 viewsLittle touches, like making door-pulls from bent tree-branches, helps everyone "get in touch with nature," and comment on how novel this place is.

Library Shelves223 viewsSome of the smallest details can create the reaction "That's so cool!" from guests, and feeds the "remarkability" which fuels word-of-mouth.
Guest Room170 viewsGuest rooms are deliberately small, simple, and "campy." People love this stuff!
Linoleum 160 viewsEach guest room includes a list of their 30 environmental design and operating principles. For instance, the guest room baths real linoleum floor covering (a natural product made from linseed oil and jute).

Campfire Area177 viewsEvery housing "village" has a central gathering space. In this case, a natural stone campfire which is lit every night for guests to enjoy.
