La. Tech Architecture Students To Design Pavilion for MedCamps
CHOUDRANT -- The Louisiana Tech School Architecture partnered up with a local nonprofit on Friday to break ground on a new outdoor pavilion and garden.
The tech architects will design the Larkin Gibbs Memorial Pavilion and Garden at Camp Alabama in Choudrant.
It will be used by Medcamps of Louisiana, nonprofit that provides camps each summer to children with physical and mental disabilities.
"The first thing they will see is this pavilion. And that pavilion is gonna be the gateway from the regular world into almost the land of Oz," said Caleb Seney, Med Camps Executive Director. "We really just want to have another feature that provides these kids exactly what they deserve, which is the best."
They hope to finish the pavilion by mid-May. It will accomodate over 60 people and will serve as a gathering and activity site for the campers.
