KZLA has developed a landscape approach to transform this coastal site in Rhode Island to be an ecologically-sensitive camp. Native ecosystems are being restored to provide greater plant and wildlife diversity. Stormwater is managed responsibly from proposed building roofs, roads and paths.  Additionally, universal access is provided for the camp facilities including boat access and the swimming beach.
