General Camp Information:

Since its inception over 28 years ago, Design Camp has exposed more than 2,000 high school students to the exciting world of design. Design Camp informs students about college study in design and raises awareness of the impact of art and design through a series of weeklong summer programs.

Design Camp students work with camp instructors and teaching assistants on projects involving each discipline offered at the college–Architecture / Landscape Architecture, Industrial Design, Art + Design, Graphic Design and Design Studies. Camp projects, developed in response to a different theme each year, challenge students to explore their creativity and critical-thinking skills while pushing them to try a range of techniques and media. In addition to studio projects, students will attend special presentations and participate in creative group challenges.

"Working with Design Camp and CAM Raleigh over the years has been a great partnership and extremely rewarding. The positions allowed me to gain valuable experience as an Instructor and continue to build my professional network in the design and education fields."  - Mike Rall, Appalachian State University Professor and dedicated Design Camp Instructor.
