Camp Kiniya

Dining Hall

Summary

Bread Loaf has provided Master Planning and Integrated Project Management services to Camp Kiniya, an all girls summer camp in Colchester, Vermont over the past 5 years. Located in the middle of the campus, the first priority project identified by the Master Plan was replacement of the heavily used Dining Hall. Designed to serve three meals daily and accommodate indoor dining for 240 campers, leaders and staff, the 10,000 sf Dining Hall includes dining area, commercial kitchen, servery, restrooms, and wrap-around porch. Operable windows and dormers, along with mechanical ventilation, provide comfortable conditions for campers throughout the summer months.

As the most heavily used building on campus, the design is functionally centered around the kitchen and is architecturally inspiring, capturing the essence of a “camp” building through its use of a timber frame structure, polished concrete floors, standing seam metal roof, a deep wrap around porch with wood and stone, and an open, light-filled dining space.

Construction was completed in May of 2017.
