If you have children, grand-children, or mentees who are 8-12 years of age and don’t know what to do with their summer vacation, we have a great two-day camp for them coming up June 17 & 18!
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. ArchiCamp is a result of a partnership with Indiana Landmarks.
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 miniature stained glass “windows,” build local buildings from cardboard boxes, 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, but full scholarships are available. Information packets and registration forms may be downloaded from our site.
This program is made possible by our generous sponsors to date: the American Legion Byron Cox Post 72, Montgomery County Retired Teachers Association, Clements Plumbing, Psi Iota Xi- Gamma Xi Chapter, Crawfordsville Tri Kappa, the Fraternal Order of Eagles #1005, and INF/BPW – Crawfordsville.
If you have questions or want to sign your child up for ArchiCamp, you can call Associate Director Amanda McGuire at 765-362-5769.
