Summer camp registration is now open!


Our camps are designed to enable participants to explore Chicago and learn first-hand why design matters. All camps build skills in the following areas: teamwork, creative problem solving, self-confidence, visual thinking and communication of ideas. Campers will solve design challenges, build models and use technology or diverse art materials under the guidance of experienced, enthusiastic designers and educators who are CAF staff members. Each day, weather permitting, all campers will go outside and explore downtown Chicago. Snacks and materials will be provided. Each camp will culminate with a showcase for family and friends during the last 90 minutes of the final camp day.

Summer camps will be offered for ages 7 to 14 in June, July and August of 2017.
