Summer 2020 Architecture Camp

Please check our Architecture Camp FAQ page for information on how we intend to keep our campers and staff safe this summer.

Embark on an adventure into the world of architecture! In our five-day Architecture Camp, campers interested in building and designing will test basic engineering principles through interactive games and activities, engage in 2-D and 3-D design challenges, and meet local architects and designers. Using the Branch House as a learning tool and workshop, campers will be challenged to think critically about how architecture and design can improve quality of life and positively impact their community. The week will end with a celebratory display of the campers’ architecture and design projects.
