The General Lew Wallace Study & Museum will host ArchiCamp in partnership with Indiana Landmarks. The two-day camp will be held June 21-22, 2016, 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 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, do architecture-related crafts, learn about careers in historic preservation, and discuss preservation successes in our community.
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 are interested in sponsoring a local child, or if you would like to register a student for ArchiCamp, please contact Amanda McGuire at [email protected] or at (765) 362-5769.
