Meet Our Team

Greg Copeland
Camp Design Lead, Registered Landscape Architect

Greg has 40 years of experience working with non-profit organizations and public institutions, including over 450 camps nationwide.  He is the founding member of our camp design team and is recognized as a national leader in the design and development of children’s camps, retreat centers and environmental education centers.  Greg encourages a spirit of collaboration and communication throughout the planning process, which results in a solution that directly addresses the needs and interests of each client.

In 2011 Greg wrote his first book on the basics of camp design master planning.  All proceeds of the book will be deposited into a special account by Domokur Architects to sponsor a campership on an annual basis in honor of his daughter Allison Copeland Levine.  "Camp Design: Master Planning Basics" is available for sale on Amazon, and you can also view a teaser here.
