Camp Sherman Community Association

Community Hall

The Camp Sherman Community Hall was built in 1949 entirely by volunteers — and continues to be run and maintained by volunteers for the benefit of the Camp Sherman community. It has gone through several remodels to keep it structurally sound. It is used for Camp Sherman Community Association (CSCA) meetings and public events, and is available for rent to members for private events. The Hall also serves as a community emergency shelter during extended power outages.


The following guide describes the Hall, and procedures for its rental use.


THE HALL

The Community Hall comprises one large room with wood floors; a coat room; fireplace and furnace; a large kitchen equipped with a sink, stove, refrigerator/freezer, microwave and lots of counter space; women’s and men’s restrooms; a utility room; and a storage room. In addition to the main entrance, there are two exit doors. Although there is no outside deck, there is a lovely shaded area on the South side of the building.


The facility includes eleven 8’ X 30” tables, roughly 130 chairs and several benches which can be arranged within the building to suit the occasion. Eight picnic tables with benches are available for outside use.

Current members in good standing of the Camp Sherman Community Association are eligible to rent the Hall. Anyone who lives, or owns property, or rents property long-term in Camp Sherman may become a member the CSCA. Dues are $40 annually.
