Architecture Camp
Session 1: June 2 – June 7, 2024
Session 2: July 7 – July 12, 2024
Session 3: July 14 – July 19, 2024

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.


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


Meals will be provided at The Edge at Central Dining. 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
