Session 1: June 14-19, 2020 | Session 2: June 21-26, 2020 | Session 3: July 12-17, 2020
Rising 11th – 12th Grade
This week-long program is designed to begin with basic concepts and conclude with several architectural design projects. These projects allow the students to display the information they have learned throughout the week. This is a highly intensive and exciting workshop where students receive vast amounts of hands-on experience. While working each day in the Auburn University School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture studios, students engage and learn from the university’s highly-qualified professors with the opportunity for individual guidance as well.
Program faculty consists of dedicated and caring Auburn faculty members who hold degrees in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and the Fine Arts. The faculty's diverse background will ensure students receive a broad perspective of the different aspects of design. There will also be camp counselors present at all times with the students to ensure safety and supervision. In addition to their work in the studio, students will experience campus-life on the plains.
Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
Breakfast and dinner will be provided in one of the newly-renovated campus dining locations. Lunch will be catered by the College of Architecture, Design and Construction. All dietary restrictions and allergies are taken into consideration for each meal.
Campers will spend majority of their instructional time in the School of Architecture - Dudley Hall
