Welcome to CAC Summer Camps!

CAC Summer Camps give children age 7-14 unique opportunities to explore the built environment and learn firsthand why design matters.

All camps require teamwork, creative problem-solving and visual thinking. Campers will share and present their ideas throughout the program, all while developing self-confidence and communication skills.

Under the guidance of professional designers and experienced educators, campers will take walking tours to view architecture, solve design challenges and build models using technology and art materials. They will see Chicago’s buildings in a new light and discover how architects' dreams become reality. Join us!
