Mo. students to help rebuild historic lodge in state park.
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources says the lodge also is to be rebuilt with modern energy-efficient materials.
Camp Pin Oak originally was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1934 and 1938. But a fire destroyed the dining lodge in September 2010. The facility is being rebuilt with the help of students from State Fair Community College as part of a yearlong training and education project.
Funding for the materials, equipment and training to rebuild the lodge will come from a $1.5 million Community Development Block Grant authorized by the Department of Economic Development.
