Camp Tamarack Rotary Lodge and OA Lodge
Kil Architecture developed the plan for accessibility upgrades to the Rotary Lodge and OA Lodge at Camp Tamarack at Wood Lake. The project includes fire and life safety upgrades (new smoke and fire detectors, emergency and exit lights) in the entire facility that houses 12 campers and up to 4 leaders. The 650 SF addition houses separate leaders quarters for male and female adult leaders, along with an accessible toilet and shower and a prep kitchen. The design of the addition was in keeping with the basic rustic material palette of the original lodge buildings which was built in the 1960s. The exterior has stained wood siding over a concrete block half-wall. New wood windows and insulated doors were provided. The interior of the north addition is clad with the same exposed rustic wood tongue and groove used in the original construction.
An accessible pit privy and washstand was constructed to serve the adjacent Fox Campsite immediately west of the Rotary Lodge. This washstand was designed to serve the needs of the campers all 4 seasons. The simple structure also was designed as a rustic wood structure compatible with the use and feel of the rest of the camp.
