Reimagining Historical Hammond Mill Camp with Scranton Products® Hiny Hiders® Partitions
Hammond Mill Camp (HMC), a non-profit organization in Dora, MO is a historical Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) campsite. It was the second camp established in the United States, built in November 1933 in the style of military barracks. Men from near and far were able to go to the camp for work to receive an income during the depression. The tasks of the CCC camps were to build roads, dams, and other facilities and repopulate wildlife by planting 8 billion trees throughout the United States.
HMC was eventually shut down in the 1940s before it was purchased from the Missouri Forestry Commission in the 1950s. Over time, the facility had the privilege of seeing 75 years of service ranging from children’s camps to family reunions, and other gatherings.
Because Hammond Mill Camp was an outdated military barracks style camp, the space where the restrooms were going to be installed needed a complete renovation in order to be turned into usable, modern restrooms for heavy foot traffic and camp visitors. Facility Manager Andy Ingalsbe of Dora, Missouri took on the task of planning a total renovation of what is now the men’s and women’s restrooms, replacing the outdated room and arranging and performing the remodel of the work-in-progress that was left previously.
“I started searching the internet for good quality bathroom partitions and came upon Scranton Products®. We needed something sturdy at the camp because it gets heavy traffic from both kids and adults, so we needed something as durable as we could find. I checked out a lot of the materials from the website and liked that it was resistant to scratches, markers, and graffiti, and we also don’t need to worry about any mold growing on the partitions with Scranton Products partitions,” explained Andy.
“The tan partitions color matched the core brand of the camp and matched the nature and outdoor elements of the creek beds surrounding the camp,” said Andy.
The first restroom was completed in 2022 and the second one was finished for the start of the 2023 season to welcome visitors, both old and new, back to the camp for their favorite recreational activities. “Hiny Hiders partitions are super easy to clean, and the stainless foot plates and aluminum brackets help maintain the overall durability and cleanliness,” said Ingalsbe.
