Come to CAF and explore ACED (Architecture, Construction, Engineering, Design) fields through site visits and tours hosted by professionals. During these tours, students will work in teams and learn exactly what goes into making a building and what it takes to for something to GET BUILT.

All campers will go outside each day and explore the Chicago Loop. Snacks and materials will be provided. Each camp will culminate with a showcase for family and friends the last 90 minutes of camp on the last day. Cancellations made more than 5 days in advance of the camp are eligible for a full refund.
