Architects in Schools Summer Camp

July 11, 2022 - July 15, 2022


Join us July 11-15, 2022 for our annual Architects in Schools Summer Camp! During this camp, students will explore ways to address climate change through sustainable architecture and design solutions. The virtual camp is free and recommended for youth ages 8-12. Register by 5pm PT on July 1 to participate.


This year’s camp theme is SMALL CHANGES = BIG IMPACT, Designing for a Sustainable and Resilient Future. What are small things that you can do in your community to address climate change? Let’s explore, together! Camp participants will learn about the benefits of sustainable architecture and discover ways they can use design to protect the natural environment. Students will be introduced to technical architecture practices such as drawing, planning, model making and more. They will identify small changes they can make in their community to create a BIG impact!


The camp is entirely virtual – meaning students can participate from home. To engage in the camp, participants will need a computer, tablet, or other device with access to internet. Every day, we will email you the digital lesson including hands-on activities, reading, thinking exercises, and pre-recorded videos. There will also be a live Zoom session everyday from 12:30-1:30pm PT. The live sessions are optional, but we do recommend students try to join as many as possible to fully experience the camp content.


We will mail free art supplies to participants who are experiencing financial barriers. Please specify on your registration form if you need supplies sent to you. SUPPLY REQUESTS ARE DUE BY JUNE 24. See the full list of recommended art supplies.


Participation in the camp is free. We are accepting donations so we can send camp materials to families who have barriers to accessing them. This will allow all children to participate regardless of need. Please consider giving to the Architecture Foundation of Oregon to supply all participants with materials and to help us offer free educational programs like this camp. Donate here. Thank you!


If you have any questions about the camp, please contact Architects in Schools Director, Kim Knowles at


Registration deadline: July 1, 5pm PT
Supply requests due by June 24
