What's Included

Prerequisite: NONE (New and returning campers welcome!). Please note that the Wednesday and Thursday ARCHITECTURE STUDIO sessions are the same (please sign up for only one) In this 8-week long studio experience, Camp H girls will learn the basics of architectural practice, taking a design from drafting board to construction site. We will look at beautiful and brilliant architectural precedents from around the world, learn how to draft plan, section, and elevation drawings, build scale models in chipboard and cardboard, and use construction documents to construct a full-scale structure. Girls will combine their design and building knowledge within an architectural context and earn their Architecture and Design badges. Snacks and all materials will be provided. Enrollment is limited to 10 girls per session. Refund / cancellation policy: If you need to cancel your camper's registration, refunds will be applied as follows - Full (100%) refund if registration is canceled BEFORE December 31, 2014; Half (50%) refund if registration is canceled AFTER December 31, 2014.

About This Organizer

Girls Garage is a one-of-a-kind design and building program and dedicated workspace for girls ages 9-13.

 

Our summer and after-school programs promote creativity, grit, and curiosity through hands-on building, problem solving, and meaningful making. Under the guidance of our rockstar, all-female staff, our girls wield jigsaws, fuse metal, and complete socially- and personally-relevant projects that unite math, engineering, material and social sciences, arts, craft, and physical challenges. While working toward our 10-module Fearless Builder Girl certification, our girls discover and learn to use their unique, creative voice to transform their communities and go forth confidently into higher education and careers.
