Peterson Dining Hall

The Peterson Dining Hall located at the heart of Camp Southern Ground offers breathtaking views of the campus’s rolling hills and dense greenery. The state-of-the-art facility is flushed with natural light and upon entering visitors are greeted by cathedral ceilings made from Sapele Mahogany donated by Bob Taylor of Taylor Guitars. The Peterson Dining Hall can comfortably seat up to 350 guests for special events and corporate meetings.

Designed by the globally renowned architectural firm, Perkins + Will, the dining hall is not only a modern work of art, but its sustainable features and architectural innovations will enhance energy efficiency as well as support the mission of Camp Southern Ground in its efforts toward organic farming and nutritional education.
