You’re Invited: Virtual Grand Opening Celebration of Enchanted Hills Camp’s New Pool Bathhouse, November 14

Join us on our Enchanted Hills Camp Facebook page, on Saturday, November 14 at 12:30 pm for an architect-guided tour of the new pool bathhouse. A Facebook account is not required. If you tune in to the event, you’ll have a chance to enter a free raffle to win an Enchanted Hills Camp 70th Anniversary sweatshirt during the live celebration.

This summer, campers attended camp sessions virtually from the safety of their homes and we took this opportunity to accelerate the rebuilding of EHC after the 2017 wildfires destroyed half of the structures at camp. The rebuilt pool bathhouse follows the rebuilding of the camp storage barn and pool shade structure.

The new bathhouse will provide spacious shower and bathroom facilities for 64 campers using our interim canvas bungalows. It became vital to replace the pool bathhouse, to provide 24-hour access to showers, restrooms, a guide dog shade area and drinking fountains for campers. As an added safety feature, the pool bathhouse is designed with a locking sliding door to prevent access to the pool when a lifeguard is not on duty.

The bathhouse was designed by the architects at Perkins & Will, and built by Eames Construction. The building is clad in redwood lumber salvaged from the trees lost in the wildfires. As new cabins and program spaces are built, they will also have this beautiful and fire-resistant redwood exterior.

Come and join us.
