Dedicated June 23, new BB Camp dining hall honors past

After 85 years of memories and four generations of campers, the B’nai B’rith Camp dining hall has been rebuilt for the future while maintaining a sense of its rich heritage. The new dining hall and conference center has increased its capacity by 50 percent while offering state-of-the-art features to benefit campers for generations to come.
The dining hall was dedicated June 23, during the Dining Hall Dedication and Friends and Family Day event at the camp on the Oregon coast near Lincoln City.
Designed by Portland Architect Stewart Gordon Straus, the new hall accommodates 310 people. The design preserved the hall’s history by incorporating the original, salvaged wood floor surrounding the new indoor/outdoor fireplace, which is flanked by windows overlooking Devil’s Lake.
“BB Camp owes a debt of gratitude to our many generous donors,” said BB Executive Director Camp Michelle Koplan.
The BB Men’s Camp Association spearheaded the project and raised more than $850,000. This construction project is the first phase in BB Camp’s 10-year master plan to replace every building.
