This program is designed to encourage young girls to explore architecture and design. We’ll explore the fundamentals of urban and residential landscape architecture and campers will find inspiration during daily walking tours in the Loop. The girls will work alongside design professionals as they develop their own ideas and designs. They’ll also have opportunities to dig through our materials library, sketch and use idea boards before ultimately creating a physical model of a new park or a redesign of their own backyard.

This camp runs from 9am to 3:30pm each day. It includes the following dates:

  • Monday, August 7
  • Tuesday, August 8
  • Wednesday, August 9
  • Thursday, August 10
  • Friday, August 11

This camp is limited to 16 participants. Campers should wear comfortable clothes appropriate for doing arts and crafts and bring a lunch, water bottle and hat. Snacks and materials will be provided. The camp will culminate with a showcase for family and friends at 2pm on August 11.
