Abstract: 

The closure of Camp Agawaten and its current state of disrepair present a lost opportunity for Canadians to enjoy the wilderness experience it had once offered in its prime. With the current dilapidated state of the camp, would a replication of the camp be the best revitalization for this site? The majority of Canadians, including new immigrants, continue to attribute Canada’s natural landscape as a fundamental characteristic of this nation. The aim of this project is to introduce the Canadian landscape to newly arrived immigrants and Canadians through the revitalization of Camp Agawaten,
in order for people to connect with an important aspect of Canadian culture. The intent of this project is not to portray a generalized Canadian landscape, but instead to highlight the deep, sensual qualities of this site alone.
