Mr. Leo Drey of Saint Louis provided the land for the camp and outdoor laboratory with the Dreyer Foundation providing some funds for construction. Edward Cissel, then Headmaster of John Burroughs School, supplied leadership in development of the physical facilities of the camp and inspired others in their work on program development. Presently Drey Land, located in the Missouri Ozarks, has a lodge, well, waste lagoon, shower rooms, bathrooms, pavilion, and 10 sleeping cabins . These facilities support attendance of 60 campers and staff.
Camp facilities are adequate, but not too civilized. The lodge,
24 feet by 40 feet, houses the kitchen and dining room. Between
meals and in the evening it serves as an indoor classroom and
laboratory. Toilets and cold showers are located in a second building.
A large pavilion, used as a laboratory, adjoins the shower house.
The nine cabins are primitive and are set back in the forest surrounding
the lodge. Only the lodge,washrooms and pavilion have electricity
and running water.
