Architecture Camp

Excelsior Architecture Camp
Our camp is based on our Blocks to Buildings curricullum used during our school-year enrichment classes. The basic philosophy of understanding the fundamentals of a subject through hands on discovery complemented by a lecture by one of our distingushed faculty makes for a fun and exciting experience.

 

The Architecture and Landscape Architecture Summer Camp is available for high school students (entering high school freshman through just-graduated seniors are eligible to attend). This summer camp offers you the unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the kinds of activities that real-life architects go through as they evaluate new projects during their planning and construction phase. Faculty, alumni, and experienced undergraduate and graduate students will mentor the campers, who will use the facilities of the Penn State School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. You can try your hand at computer drafting and design and take part in hands-on building and model-making activities. You'll also tour the unique architecture and landscape architecture of Boston and Cambridge, and take a field trip to Hamilton/Wenham area— the famous house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. You'll round out your camp activities with various films, tours, and social events. The registration fee includes meals, materials, instruction, and the field trip and admission to various musuems.
