Creative Works Farm, the proud home of Camp LIGHT, is a 501c tax-exempt, Virginia nonprofit corporation. We are developing an energy-efficient, environmentally-responsible LEED® certified children’s summer camp and community center. The special needs youth and families served by this green showcase campus will be supported with fun and imaginative activities, in a loving and healthy space.
Dr. Annie Pearce, a key faculty member in the Department of Building
Construction Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech has
decided to “adopt” Camp LIGHT. Over the next 18 months, she and her
Building Construction students at Virginia Tech will be developing a
detailed environmental inventory of the site, including the creation of
an automated data stream of environmental measurements from the site
using renewable energy assessment equipment, solar radiation, wind speed
and direction, rainfall, temperature, and humidity. The students will
use various aspects of the site development to create student projects.
