Discover the history of Chicago and collaborate with your fellow campers to design and build an ideal neighborhood during this week-long urban planning camp for ages 11-14. Each camper receives a copy of the graphic novel "No Small Plans."
The CAC's summer camps provide students with 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.
