Council Plans to Go Bigger After Dining Hall Collapse

Posted on 28 December 2008 by Dan

Camp Gerber Dining Hall CollapseGerald R. Ford Council is able to thank the heavy snow in Michigan for making a tough property decision easier. The Council was debating whether or not they should expand the main dining hall at their Boy Scout Camp, Gerber Scout Camp.

On Wednesday morning, the dining hall collapsed under the weight of the heavy snow. No one was in the building when it collapsed. The only portion that is still standing is the kitchen area.

The current dining hall was build in 1997 and could seat 480 people. The new dining hall, which the Council plans to have finished by June will seat approximately 600 people.
