Sequoia Lake Family Camp, CA349 viewsYeah, you could eat indoors here. But why would you if you had this option? Wow!

YMCA Camp Dudley, WA (yeah, there are two camp Dudley's!)439 viewsOften a small camp dining hall is easier to feel "at home" in, even on a budget. Note the simple hanging lamps that efficiently puts most of the light where it's needed, avoiding a blinding-white ceiling so common in "indirect lighting" that designers push for. http://www.yakimaymca.org/

Camp Y-Noah dining hall, Akron OH YMCA336 viewsMaking some smart choices right at the beginning made sure there was enough money to finish the small details that really make the building. The budget might have helped keep the ceiling lower and the materials natural, but smart design made it work much better than most as a result. http://www.gotcamp.org (Cool URL, huh?)
Tecumseh Scheuman Lodge.jpg
Schueman Lodge, Camp Tecumseh IN304 viewsThe historic camp dining hall just couldn't be added on to any more, but rather than abandon it an entire second camp was built for the older campers. 12x12" acoustic ceiling tiles make it a great place for conversations, earth-tone ceramic tile makes for a floor that looks great (even when dirty!) The indirect lighting does make the ceiling a little blinding if it's dark outside; fortunately there are beautiful hanging lamps that give a real "lodge" dining experience at night.

Schueman Lodge, Camp Tecumseh IN, fellowship lounge295 viewsDining is just one function of a camp dining hall. Before you get to that room, figure that people will first need to use restrooms and sinks and hand sanitizers, and before and after meals they'd really like a nice gathering place to talk and relax. This one fits the bill!

Camp Takodah, NH Dining Hall interior396 viewsThe story goes that no board president wanted to be responsible for replacing the historic (but violation-full) original dining hall. Until a new chairman said, "What we really need is a dining hall that people will say 50 years from NOW, "they don't build 'em like this any more!" A great vision that excited donors, too. http://www.camptakodah.org

Wavus Camp for Girls, NH528 viewsWhen it all comes together visually, guests go "wow!" and putting it in your brochure makes people say, "Now THAT'S the place!" http://www.kieve.org/
