Description

Ryerson’s Department of Architectural Science presents this week-long camp for campers looking to unleash their creativity!

Campers learn from some of the top Architectural Science students at Ryerson, and participate in innovative and engaging team and individual exercises.

Each week features a distinct take-home project that campers work on. Each camper gets to keep their projects at the end of their camp week.

This program features time for recreational activities, including use of the Recreation and Athletic Centre gyms, studios, and other spaces.

The curriculum for Architecture Camp is developed by Dr. Vince Hui, who is a past recipient of the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations Teacher Award, external link.
