Architecture Camp – Session 1: June 10-15, 2018; Session 2: July 8-13, 2018
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. From residing in resident dormitories and dining at on-campus facilities to enjoying evening social and recreational activities, the students will receive a memorable experience and great opportunity that they will cherish.
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.
Campers will have various meal options for breakfast and lunch in The Student Center. Unlike breakfast and lunch, dinner is held in The Village Dining facility, where they have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.
Campers will spend majority of their instructional time in the School of Architecture - Dudley Hall
