Children immerse themselves in the world of architecture. Campers discover the fundamentals of architecture by studying the 1838 Peter Augustus Jay House, along with the two other 19th century mansions, which are part of the Boston Post Road Historic District. Campers put their knowledge to work by creating buildings out of cardboard boxes and other recycled materials. After learning about the basic principles of zoning, they organize their buildings on a giant map of the Boston Post Road. In addition to constructing buildings essential to a functioning city, such as a police station and fire house, each camper has the opportunity to design his or her “dream house.” Session I: August 1-5, Session II: August 15-19. Hours: 9:30 am to 1:00 pm. $185 per session....
