Registration Now Open for Archi.North Summer Camp

Camps open to students entering Grade 11 and 12

April 26, 2024 - A unique pre-university experience that challenges participants to exercise new ways of seeing, imagining, and designing the world around them returns to Greater Sudbury this summer. Archi·North, the bilingual, tricultural, in-person architecture summer camp at the McEwen School of Architecture at Laurentian University is now open for registration.

Archi·North participants will receive instruction from faculty and Architecture graduates in a one-of-a-kind introductory experience in architecture, design, drafting and drawing at McEwen School of Architecture’s award-winning campus.

“Summer 2023 was a big success for the first season of Archi·North. Bringing the program back this summer was an easy decision,” said Louis-Pierre Bélec, Assistant Professor, McEwen School of Architecture and Coordinator, Archi·North. “The professors and grads loved instructing and working with the students–and we got incredibly positive feedback from students and their parents. We’re excited to offer the camp again but also to continue to grow the program for both new and returning students.”

Building on the success of the inaugural camps last summer, this year offers two levels of the day camp. Session 01 for first-time participants, and Session 02 for returning participants who are interested in an extended two-week camp experience. This year, Archi·North will be issuing Sector-Partnered Experience certificates to students pursuing a Specialist High Skills Major in eligible sectors.

The camp is open to high school students who are entering Grade 11 and Grade 12 in September 2024. No other qualifications are required. A limited number of bursaries are available to eligible students through the Collab·North Sponsorship program.
