Do you have a student, age 8-12, interested in learning more about architecture?

Join us for our 2021 summer camp on July 9, 16, 23, 30, from 9am-11am

This year, DACKids Summer Camp will be virtual.

Workshops will focus on Introduction to Architecture, Landscape Design, Interior Design, and Adaptive Reuse.  

Dates (Register for one or all four workshops!):
Friday, July 9, 9:00am-11am: Introduction to Architecture
Friday, July 16, 9:00am-11am: Landscape Architecture
Friday, July 23, 9:00am-11am: Interior Design
Friday, July 30, 9:00am-11am: Adaptive Reuse

(For each workshop, students will need to have basic craft supplies available. A full list of materials will be sent out closer to the start of camp.)

In Introduction to Architecture students will learn the fundamentals of design and how it influences wellness.  By the end of the workshop kids will have a model they build themselves that demonstrates what they have learned.

Landscape Architecture will teach kids about green design and how it can enhance and enrich a space.  Students will learn about plants and how to use them when designing  a space.  They will design and brainstorm their own green space.

During our Interior Design workshop students will explore how color schemes influence moods, perception of space and overall feel of a room and ways natural light influences overall wellness. They will also delve into how furniture influences space and comfort.  Kids will design their own space, deciding color scheme, layout, and room division through interior design.

For our final workshop kids will explore Adaptive Reuse.  Through an exploration of space and buildings, how can a building be redesigned for wellness.  Perhaps adding a rooftop garden.  Students will identify a building or space they would redesign to promote wellness. 

We can’t wait to share our fun summer with you!
