Architecture Camp
Session 1: June 13-18, 2021 | Session 2: June 27-July 2, 2021
Rising 11th – 12th Grade

Due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, Auburn University is currently practicing social distancing with 50% capacity in classrooms. The University also has requirements of a face coving in all university buildings and in all outdoor spaces when social distancing is not possible. The CADC will follow all university requirements during summer camps this year. Auburn University and the CADC reserve the right to additional changes to camps including cancellation if the global pandemic continues into summer 2021. If our camps are cancelled, full refunds will be awarded to all registered students. For more information on how Auburn is responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic please visit the A Healthier U website at:

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.


Campers will reside in the Hill Dormitories or the Quad dorms. They are designed in suites consisting of two double-occupancy rooms connected by a bathroom.


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
