Summer Architecture & Design Camps

2020 Summer Camps Cancelled

The Alden B. Dow Home and Studio has prided itself on providing the highest quality programming and experiences to all of our guests.  Because there is still so much unknown about the virus and no known vaccine, we feel we must cancel all summer camps to ensure the safety of our campers.   Part of the joy of our camp is to have access to all areas of the Home and Studio in addition to the creative and inventive hands-on activities.   Because of the nature of our camps, at this time we feel we could not protect our campers with so much still unknown.  We know this is disappointing and causes issues for scheduling for many families.  Once we know more and can ensure the safety to visitors, we will offer options.

We will issue refunds for the camp registration beginning today.  It may take your credit card company a few days to credit your account.   Our phone system was destroyed during the flooding and we are working on having it replaced.  If you have a question, please email


Again, we apologize that we must cancel camps.   We hope to be able to safely offer new options in the near future. 


On behalf of the whole Alden B. Dow Home and Studio Staff,

Craig McDonald



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.

Please fill out the following parent packet and medical consent forms after registering your camper. Forms can be dropped off or mailed to:
