Civil & Environmental Engineering students enrolled in the Senior Design Capstone course will design a site plan for an ADA-compliant cultural education center at Camp Courageous. 

Camp Courageous officials are requesting a cultural education center with an observation deck for use by all campers. Desired elements for the overlook include an enclosed building usable year-round, bathroom facilities, electrical service, along with an observation deck to view the surrounding natural habitat and river.  In compliance with ADA-design requirements, students will evaluate potential sites for the overlook and create a site and facility plan.
