Black + Vernooy | Camp Buckner - Black + Vernooy

Camp Buckner

The project consisted of a master plan and buildings for a complete camp isolated on one portion of a 6000-acre tract owned by the Buckner Foundation. The program was phased, with cabins, administration building, faculty residences, and the dining hall in Phase I. Two gymnasiums, swimming pools, classroom facilities, and additional cabins are planned for Phase II.

Simple wood trusses, straightforward wood siding and inexpensive metal roofs reflect the relaxed character of the basic Hill Country farm or ranch.

Black + Vernooy won an award for Excellence in Wood Design from the Texas Forestry Association for this project.
