Enroll your child in a summer camp at the Alden B. Dow Home and Studio and see them expand their view of the world! The Home and Studio’s goal is to challenge campers to think in new ways about architecture and the spaces people inhabit, engage in interactive designing and building activities, and share time with new friends. A good balance of indoor and outdoor activities adds up to a lot of fun and play! Weather permitting, all camps include time spent canoeing on the pond around the Home and Studio.
Session I June 22-25
Session II August 3-6
During their week, campers will design and build their own miniature tree house, explore the Home and Studio, and learn more about Alden B. Dow and his architectural work. During their summer camp adventure, campers will learn about some of Midland’s Mid-Century Modern structures and its architectural heritage.
Session I June 29-July 2
Session II August 10-13
During their week, campers will design and build their own miniature home or structure, and create their own town as a group. During their summer camp adventure, campers will learn about some of Midland’s Mid-Century Modern structures and its architectural heritage.
During their week, campers will design and build a diorama or miniature room, complete with their own handmade furniture, work on a project in copper, and create their own Jackson Pollock inspired painting.
During their week, campers will design and create their own Cornell shadow boxes, build a Louise Nevelson inspired sculpture, and work with partners on large scale design projects.
All camps include access to special areas of the Alden B. Dow Home and Studio not included on regular tours. All camps feature independent curriculum, meaning campers do not need to attend one camp as a prerequisite to attend the others, and may attend both in their grade category.
