Camps 'N Codes

For camp administrators, it is all too often that they find their vision of an renovation or expansion project is not in tune with the building codes and regulations enforced by the local Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Where camp administrators wish to promote a rustic experience in natural settings, the codes may require sprinkler systems, heating, additional plumbing fixtures, and full compliance with accessibility standards. The codes are often not flexible enough or equipped with sufficient exceptions to address the specific use and needs of camps, especially seasonal camps.
