Call for Volunteers: SFNOMA Project Pipeline Summer Camp

How It Works

The Project Pipeline Architecture Summer Camp is camp for youth age 11 – 17. The camp is designed to expose youth to the built environment and architecture profession. As one of the few initiatives in the nation connecting youth and architecture.

 Youth are introduced to the essential elements of architecture and work both individually and collaboratively to address community-focused issues through creativity and design innovation with a real project site. The camp was created to Equip, Empower and Educate Youth through architectural design and engineering techniques. Students will about sketching, diagraming, technical drawing, and model making.

This year’s camp will be an eight-day virtual intensive studio-based program that introduces middle school students (ages 12 to 14) to the professions of architecture and planning. Students will learn and practice sketching, architectural drawing, model making, critical thinking, and public speaking skills during this program. The camp will run from July 12 to July 19 virtually from 9 am to 5 pm.

Like last year, The Project Pipeline Architecture Summer Camp will be virtual only for both the safety of out mentors and our students. Students will be paired in groups and have a mentor to learn and complete tasks to create a comprehensive architectural design project.
