Louisiana Swamp Base

Location: Henderson, Louisiana
Size: 80,000 sf

Louisiana Swamp Base is a national conservation and high adventure recreation base created in 2010 by the Evangeline Area Council, Boy Scouts of America to commemorate the Centennial of Scouting while also making a 100 year commitment to annually immerse thousands of youth in the environment and culture of the Atchafalaya Swamp.

Swamp Base is currently in the middle of a $30 million capital and endowment campaign for the future home of the program. This campaign is focused on establishing a permanent base facility for Swamp Base. Concepts for the base facility include a state of the art multi-functional welcome center, educational facility, dining hall, and lodging.

ACSW Architects completed facilities programming, ongoing project management, master planning & building design, and ultimately construction documents as this project moves forward.
