Remember heading off to summer camp? Now, summer camp offers more than just macaroni crafts. The Project Pipeline Camp is a week-long architecture and community planning summer camp for middle school students, ages 11-14. Now in its sixth year, participants learn STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture, and Math skills) while working on a community project to help improve a San Francisco neighborhood.
Hosted on the California College of The Arts campus in San Francisco, the camp is an initiative by more than 13 National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) chapters called Project Pipeline. The project’s goal is to help diversify the architecture and planning professions by focusing on providing youth from underrepresented cultures interested in architecture and community planning into the career “pipeline” at the early stages of development.
The camp runs June 27–July 1. Full and partial scholarships are available. Scholarship applications are due May 23. Camp applications are due by May 30.
