Archie Hall was hired to build the beautiful lodge building with Jim McCulloch and many volunteers. Volunteers came from Halifax, Truro, Sydney, Moncton, and Charlottetown, especially on Saturdays, some during the week, some even giving their entire vacation time to help in this large undertaking. Joan and the children joined Archie for the entire spring and summer, so there would be someone on site at all times and the work could progress much more quickly. The campers now had the enjoyment of eating wonderful meals in a large dining room. Chapel time and other functions were held in the lounge.
