July 24, 2022 – July 30, 2022

The UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning offers an opportunity for high school students to experience architecture education through our architecture summer camp, which we have proudly offered for over two decades. In response to the pandemic and to provide the same rigorous, hands-on learning experience that students across the U.S. have come to expect from summers at SARUP, we’re proud to offer a fully online Virtual Architecture Summer Camp again this year.

Our Virtual Architecture Summer Camp is ideal for students interested in architecture, design, and 3D design technologies. Students in grades 9-12, including new high-school graduates, will learn the basics of architectural design. SARUP faculty member Alex Timmer, supported by SARUP graduate students, faculty, and staff, are excited to rise to the challenge of making this year’s academy memorable.

This Virtual Architecture Summer Camp will meet virtually S, M, T, W, TH, F from 9:00am-12:00pm July 24th-July 29th. During this time, students will be presented with situations for which they will design an architectural solution. Students will learn how to communicate their design ideas through models, drawings, text, and verbal presentation. Workshops will teach students how to use digital modeling tools, read architectural drawings, and document their work through 2D representation. On July 30th, students and families will have an opportunity (this is optional) to visit Milwaukee in person, take in a few architecture tours, and have lunch at the School of Architecture from 9:00am-12:30pm.
