As part of their Senior Capstone Course, Civil & Environmental Engineering students identified and connected points of interest on the Camp Courageous grounds with ADA-compliant nature trails for all campers to use.

Camp Courageous' grounds offer many opportunities for viewing natural forest habitats that are currently inaccessible to campers. The objective of this project was to identify points of interest within the grounds, connecting chosen locations with ADA-compliant nature trails. Students worked within provided design parameters including budget constraints, general maintenance requirements, as well as aiming to preserve the area's natural habitat and aesthetics.
