Seeking Young Architecture Enthusiasts


On June 21-22, we will again host ArchiCamp in partnership with Indiana Landmarks. The two-day camp is open to students ages 8-12.

ArchiCamp is an architecture-based camp that uses historic architecture to educate and excite children about local history and instills stewardship and responsibility for our cultural heritage. During the two-day camp, students will learn about Crawfordsville’s architectural heritage, including the historic Study building.

Campers will take walking tours, learn about architectural terms, make architecture-based crafts, build local buildings from cardboard boxes, and learn about careers in historic preservation and discuss preservation successes in our community.

Snacks will be provided each day, but campers should bring a sack lunch. The camp costs $25 and scholarships are available. More information and registration forms can be downloaded at the ArchiCamp page.

In order to provide this experience to families for only $25, we rely on donations from organizations, businesses and individuals to sponsor students for $75. If you’re interested in sponsoring a local child, please contact Amanda McGuire at amcguire@ben-hur.com or at (765) 362-5769.

This program is made possible by our generous sponsors to date: Roger Adams, INFBPW, Byron Cox Post 72-American Legion, Montgomery County Extension Homemakers, Montgomery County Retired Teachers Association, Fraternal Order of Eagles #1005, Kappa Kappa Kappa – Delta Omicron Chapter, and Psi Iota Xi – Gamma Xi Chapter.
