NW & PVC: Dining Hall Expansion and Renovations

The 2024 expansion of “Mac Hall” is the single biggest facilities improvement to the YGB overnight camps in decades!

MacGregor Hall, also known as “Mac Hall,” is the Pleasant Valley Camp, “PVC,” for Girls Dining Hall. The existing dining hall was under-sized relative to the growing needs of the camp. We are extremely excited to make it possible for the whole PVC community to dine together.

This project is expanding and renovating our space allowing Pleasant Valley Campers to be served in one special space. This supports the singing, comradery, inclusion, accessibility, and safety we want for our camps.

The renovation includes many other key elements that serve members of both the North Woods and Pleasant Valley camp communities as outlined below.

Key additional elements of the expansion will include:

  • The new dining hall has a large, outdoor porch which will create a much-needed quiet space for young people with sensory processing disorders and other youth for whom a quiet meal-time space is important.
  • The new dining hall will accommodate youth with restricted diets much better than our current facility supports. Campers will be able to see all the food options and choose what meets their needs.
  • We will also be renovating the bathrooms for both North Woods and Pleasant Valley Campers. The new bathrooms are designed to maximize privacy and choice for our campers of all genders, an essential inclusion consideration for our camp.
  • Finally, the dining hall renovation project is part of a phased renovation program with inclusion at the heart of the design.

This is a $1.25M project. of this, our capital budget is supplying $1M, so to ensure all of these key elements  come to fruition we are seeking to raise an additional $250k through donations. We appreciate your consideration and support!
