Camp Wawona’s cafeteria got a little brighter as camp staff stripped and refinished the kitchen and dining room floors with a high gloss wax. The process, which involved relocating anything not permanently installed and then applying a three-step refinishing system, took several days but paid off in the end with a like-new glossy shine. To protect the newly finished floors in the dining room, staff removed the old feet from the benches and installed new felt tips so each bench can easily and safely slide, protecting the floor and making it easier for visitors to sit at the tables. Staff finished re-organizing the cafeteria just in time for the Tri-Campus Retreat – the first user group of 2010! Pictures of the refinishing process and bench sliders are below.
