High School Summer Camps
The annual Building Construction Summer Camp is a week-long camp open to rising 11th-12th graders considering a career in architecture or building science. Students in this camp start the week by learning construction management processes like estimating, scheduling, BIM modeling, materials and methods and safety from our Building Science Faculty, and finish the week using the construction management processes learned to build a structure.
The annual Construction Management Summer Academy for Young Women (CMSAYW) is a program geared toward rising 11th–12th grade students interested in learning about the exciting and diverse career opportunities available in construction management. Students in this full scholarship camp, selected through an application process, will experience the construction industry through activities that incorporate construction drawings, materials and methods, innovative technologies, and more.
