Hiram House Master Plan


Master Plan

Hiram House has updated its Master Plan and is now preparing to implement the next phase of improvements, which will generate new facilities and programs at the 172-acre camp site on Hiram Trail in Moreland Hills.

These new and renovated facilities are being designed to renew the 116-year old, non-profit camp as a regional resource for children, adults and organizations in Northeast Ohio. Plans include the construction of a new: Dining Center, Activity Center, Aquatics Center, Lodge Village Cabin, and other program and facility improvements. These new structures will incorporate environmentally friendly "green design" concepts, where feasible. The plan also calls for the restoration of Pioneer Circle to again be a grassy, outdoor activity and play area for campers and other camp guests.

Executive Director Russell R. Grundke noted, "The addition of these new living, dining, learning and recreational facilities will offer Hiram House both increased capacity and flexibility. This will enhance our ability to serve the many area residents and organizations who use our camp each year."

The original, multi-year Master Plan was developed by Kaleidoscope, Inc., a nationally noted camp planning firm. During the past decade, the Hiram House Board of Trustees used and refined the plan as a "blueprint" to guide future capital development projects. In the plan's inital phase, the camp built a number of new facilities in recent years, including its popular "Double H Ranch" western Horseback Riding Center, three new all-weather, residential Log Cabins which house fifty campers each, an Alpine Climbing Tower for the Challenge Course, as well as extensive infrastructure improvements.

Hiram House also completed the first phase of renovations to Taylor Hall Dining & Activity Center, built a new High Ropes Course for its Teambuilding Adventure Center, and added a new Farmstead Barn to house baby farm animals at the Double H Ranch as part of its popular Farmstead program.
