Renaissance Kids 2012

Registration is underway for Renaissance Kids, an architecture day camp for kids ages 5–16, held at the Andrews University School of Architecture, Art & Design. There are five weeklong sessions and one two-weeklong session offered during the months of June and July.
Kids get to experience hands-on fun with design, drafting, building, sketching, watercolors and more. While exploring the discipline and lessons of architecture, Renaissance Kids provides a fun array of hands-on projects through which children learn about history and culture, design concepts, the architect’s tools, construction and materials, community and citizenship.

Each year, students attending the two-week session (Session 6) have an opportunity to participate in a real-world building project. This year’s project (pending final approval process) is building a place on campus. In past years, students have contributed to design ideas and actually built a paved sitting area in front of the Curious Kids Museum in St. Joseph; constructed an arbor outside of the Andrews University School of Architecture, Art & Design; and created decorative pieces for and installed a Whisper Dish permanent exhibit at the Curious Kids Discovery Zone in St. Joseph, Mich.
