One of the largest buildings at the camp, this one-story, L-shaped hall was built as the administrative building and included space for a small infirmary, recreation hall, and staff offices. One ell contains a large recreation room featuring a high ceiling open to the gable roof and a massive stone chimney. The other wing contains five small rooms, a lounge, a kitchen, and a bathroom. All of these rooms have wood floors and tongueand-groove wood ceilings.
