Kitchen and Dining Hall Renovations

Kitchen and Dining Hall Renovations

Join us as we enhance the Camp Mennoscah Kitchen, Dining Hall, and Entrance!  The Camp Mennoscah dining hall and kitchen have always been a place of gathering.  Through these updates, we are seeking to provide space for new meaningful experiences in these areas while also honoring the traditions they have held for many years.

After a busy start to the year, much cleaning, and arranging new equipment, we dedicated the new, completed main camp kitchen this April, and it has already been in use! Updates to the dining hall will come next, but they will wait until after the camping season winds down in the fall. The new welcome area is mostly complete but will remain unfinished until we start in on the dining hall renovations, with estimated completion by April 2019. The next time you are at camp, you will be greeted by the new covered entrance to the dining hall! We are excited about how this new feature will provide a clear point of entry into the dining hall for new guests. We are still working toward our fundraising goal of $553,000 for the entire project. Thanks for considering support for the kitchen and dining hall!
