As part of the Cooper Union Reunion 2021 programming, the CUAA is hosting a storytelling hour during which several alumni will share recollections of their time spent at Green Camp.
Peter Cooper’s grandson, Norvin Hewitt Green, donated land adjacent to the family’s estate, Ringwood Manor, to The Cooper Union in 1940. This land became Green Camp. Among other things, Green Camp was used for school activities, including landscape drawing and painting, and courses in surveying. In the mid-1970s, Cooper Union transferred Green Camp to the State of New Jersey, Division of Parks and Forestry.
