From the Nature Camp, Inc Facebook page posted May 6th:

“On a day when we remember one of Nature Camp’s brightest stars, born 26 years ago today, construction fortuitously began on the Gus Deeds Memorial Pavilion. Nearly all the lumber for the posts and beams either was milled from a white oak which used to shade the pool or was generously donated by alumnus Walter Mehring. The site was graded and leveled this morning, holes were dug for posts this afternoon, and beams will go up in the next few days. At the upcoming Spring Service Weekend (May 15-17) we’ll install benches and add a decorative stone floor. Many, many thanks to all those whose generosity has made this structure possible.”

Construction of the Pavilion will be completed soon. Stay tuned for more photos here on the website and on the Nature Camp, Inc and Nature Camp Foundation Facebook Pages.   Benches and a retaining wall will be installed at the Spring Service Weekend (May 15-17 at Nature Camp).  A dedication of the Pavilion is planned for June.
