What does it mean to be green in design? Discover the possibilities of our cities, landscapes, and habitats in a sustainable world! Through an architecture, landscape, and urban design lens, campers will explore how designers are creating resilient cities and challenge themselves to think big as they prototype their own innovative design solutions that shape the future of our built environment.

For the health and safety of our camp community, we will not be offering a family celebration at the end of each one-week session, as was done in prior years.
