Rome wasn’t built in a day, but in a week, campers will experience the work and wonder of designing and constructing their very own model building.  First, we will discover what is behind a wall of a building.  Then, we will consider the different parts that are required to be able to use the building as well as the many materials and tools used in construction.  Campers then consider a reason people in their community or in the world beyond could need or want a building and write down what their building’s use will be.  Then, they will then design the building they have have described in detail.  Following the design, they will use assorted materials to put a model together, using their own hands.  At the culmination of the week, campers will present their completed model and receive a certificate of occupancy so they can take their building home or to the city planner!
