Overview

Camp Ledgewood is located in Boston Heights and Peninsula, Ohio, within the boundaries of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This 400-acre camp features Low Lodge dining hall and activity center, swimming pool, low ropes course, high ropes course, zip line, shower house, health center and Trading Post. Housing units include 10 sleeping cabins, four platform tent units, and four Adirondack shelter units. Each unit has a picnic pavilion for group activities, campfire circle, wash pavilion with sinks and latrines. Camp Ledgewood also boasts Boston Run Creek, an archery range, sports field, amphitheater, observatory and Lake Loomis for canoeing and nature studies.

Scope of Services

Environmental Design Group provided design drawings for the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and the collection system that consisted of six grinder pump stations, directionally drilled HDPE force mains, and gravity sanitary sewers. The WWTP included flow equalization, extended aeration, clarifiers, uplift clarifiers, dosing pumps, sand filters, UV disinfection, and a sludge holding tank. The system was designed for an initial flow of 4,200 gallons per day (GPD) and the future flow of 13,000 GPD. Environmental Design Group also assisted Girl Scout staff in overseeing the construction and final inspection of the facilities.

Impact

As aging camp facilities were closed, activities were consolidated at Camp Ledgewood. With plans to add a multipurpose facility, including food service and additional cabins, Ohio EPA required a new WWTP to handle future flows in the amount of 13,000 GPD.
