High School Students Offered Architecture Camp Opportunity

ARCH Camp '13

For the last ten years, the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture (APLA) has been offering a summer camp experience to eleventh and twelfth graders who are interested in studying architecture. Students come from all over the country to spend a week on campus and in APLA’s studios to get a hands-on experience with actual design projects. Architecture camp has become so popular that it is now offered twice each summer.

Last year, sixty students—from as far away as Southern California—attended the two camp sessions that were directed by Scott Finn, Ann and Batey Gresham Professor in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture. Summer Camp 2012 counselors Sarahgrace Godwin and Harry Hadlock, III were not only APLA students but also Architecture Camp alumni. ​

Registration is now open for Architecture Summer Camp 2013 sessions that are June 23-28 and July 7 -12. For more information about Architecture Camp 2013 and to register, please go to:

>>  Jason McKinley, is a senior at Auburn High, attending Architecture camp for a second year. He wanted to attend for second time because he wanted to see how a different professor would teach the camp. (Paul Zorr directed camp his first year), and he wanted to expand on what he had learned the first year and go more in depth.

Jason says, “Architecture camp has expanded my view of what an architect does.” Asked about \his favorite part of camp, Jason replied, “Building models and working on computers.”

He plans to study architecture but isn’t sure where he will go to school. Auburn is his first choice, and he hopes he will get a scholarship.
