Camp Architecture is a summer camp for children that introduces them to the world of architecture and design through hands-on activities, field trips, walking tours, presentations by industry professionals, and imaginative games.  Camp Architecture began in 2010 with 16 children in a summer day camp programming for late elementary and middle school students.  In 2013, the camp began offering three distinct programs – one each for elementary, middle, and high school students – and had nearly 70 participants. In 2014, our High School Design Studio program expanded to two weeks, and the three camps grew again, accommodating 80 campers ages 8 to 18. For the past two years, we have offered three one-week sessions of Camp Architecture and one two-week session of High School Design Studio.
