Camp Prairie Schooner Trail Center
Located between Lee’s Summit and Independence, Missouri, Camp Prairie Schooner Trail Center sits high on the bluffs of the Little Blue River just southeast of downtown Kansas City. With 176 wooded acres, Prairie Schooner feels like wilderness in the heart of a metropolitan area.
Wallace provided structural and civil engineering services for two new troop houses and shower facility. The 7,200 square foot troop houses includes bunks, flex rooms, kitchens and conditioned bathrooms to allow year-round use for up to 40 campers. The project also included a large shower facility, which is available to the 250+ campers who attend Camp Prairie Schooner Trail Center annually.
The project has been honored with a 2016 Small Project Award by the American Institute of Architects.
