Summer Design Camps

Designing for Children

Nurture your creative spirit at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park Studio, where America's most famous architect pioneered a bold new vision for modern architecture and design.  

Consider the evolving design of schools, playscapes, children’s furniture, and toys from Frank Lloyd Wright’s time to today! Designing for Children is a weeklong summer camp that explores how architecture and design can better inspire, encourage, educate, and influence today’s children. Participants will have the hands-on support of educators, artists, and designers as they conceptualize and build an architectural model of a space designed specifically for children. Working in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park Drafting Room, participants will also discover how Wright used architecture and design to engage children in learning and play.

Camper Showcase: Camp will conclude on Friday with an informal presentation of work from 11-11:30 am. We invite friends and family to join us in the courtyard near the museum shop to view our participants’ completed projects. We hope to see you there! 

All Trust educators working with children are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
