Archi-North summer camp is back!

The MSoA is thrilled to announce the return of its Archi·North Architecture Summer Camp!

Archi·North is a uniquely bilingual, tricultural, in-person architecture camp open to high school students who are entering into Grades 11 and 12 in September 2024. Camps will run in-person from July 8, 2023 – July 19, 2024 (English) and July 29, 2024 – August 2, 2024 (French).

For its second year, Archi·North is expanding its offerings, with a Session 01 for participants coming to Archi·North for the first time, and a Session 02 for returning participants from the 2023 camp and new participants interested in a two-week camp experience. In addition, 20 Collab·North Sponsorships are available for students in Northern Ontario, and SPE certificates will be issued to SHSM students in eligible sectors.

With instruction from faculty and recent graduates, Archi·North offers an introductory experience in drafting and drawing, architectural design, physical model making, and digital software. Each week-long session will consist of a broad introduction into the architectural process and design thinking in an academic and design-oriented environment, and will end with an exhibition of the week’s work for viewing by family and the community.

As part of the first bilingual architecture school in Canada, Archi·North is dedicated to offer a pre-university experience that makes architectural education more accessible and more affordable to communities across Northern Ontario. Archi·North offers an unconventional summer camp experience that challenges participants to exercise new ways of seeing – and re-imagining – the world around them.
