Camp Architecture is a specially designed five-day summer day camp geared toward middle school and high school students interested in the field of architecture.
Participants learn to draw by hand and on the computer, construct models in the CAPLA Materials Lab, test structural models and learn about careers in sustainability and in the design field.
Led by registered architect and CAPLA faculty member Valerie Lane, this dynamic summer day camp offers aspiring young architects a unique glimpse into the world of design. At Camp Architecture, young scholars work with practicing architects and architecture students.
Camp Architecture participants:
- Use real tools
- Work with real materials
- Experience real buildings
Each session is a sequence of highly orchestrated workshops. Returning campers are welcome and will be offered a unique experience that immerses them further into the design process. This year we are adding an advanced camp interdisciplinary project with the College of Engineering summer camp, too.Registration is managed through Campus Recreation. Registration for Camp Architecture 2020 will be available in March 2020. Please note this is a day camp only; CAPLA does not provide lodging for campers who come from out-of-town.
All camps are from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. We do offer before- and after-care from 7:30-9 a.m. and 4-5:30 p.m.
