Revisiting Craig Construction

Earlier this week, the Council released some photos of the progress being made at Camp Craig. The dining hall has been under renovation for several months now, with major structural updates to the roof, ceiling, and windows and some cosmetic updates to the bathrooms. There are other, less visible, updates as well, all sorely needed. The last time any major changes were done to the dining hall was 1998 when the front uprights were put on concrete pylons and Trading Post/Handicraft areas were renovated.

Thus, with that in mind, we thought it might be a good time to revisit a series of REALLY OLD posts–all the way back in 2013 and 2014 in fact. In 2013 we ran a series on construction of the camp itself.  In 2014, Camp Craig was celebrating its 40th anniversary and we ran a month long series on Craig’s dedication. We thought it might be worth pointing you that way again! Once the current work is officially completed, we’ll post some photos about the process. In the meantime…

First, take a look at our write up about Edwin W. Craig under “People and Positions” on our Primer page.

Then, check out these posts on Camp Craig’s construction and dedication, now 45 years ago.
