The General Lew Wallace Study & Museum hosts ArchiCamp in partnership with Indiana Landmarks. The three-day camp will be held June 20-22, 2017, and is open to students ages 8-12. The camp costs $25 and scholarships are available. Snacks will be provided each day, but campers should bring a sack lunch.

ArchiCamp is an architecture-based camp that uses historic architecture to educate excite children about local history and instills stewardship and responsibility for our cultural heritage. During the three-day camp, students will learn about Crawfordsville’s architectural heritage, including the historic Study building. Campers will take walking tours, learn about architectural terms, do architecture-related crafts, learn about careers in historic preservation, and discuss preservation successes in our community.
