Fortitude: Collaborative Fort-Building
7/10/2017 9:00 AM - 7/14/2017 12:00 PM
Aspiring architects will master basic building by working in a team to create a large-scale fort. Collaboration and imagination will be integral to their success!
At the start of the week, campers will survey their building site and study the design of historic forts. They will also learn about various methods for making use of natural materials in construction and collect supplies from Montalvo’s grounds. Then they will collectively plan and build their structure.
As they work together to make their vision a reality, these young builders will master basic principles of architecture and construction, and learn how to safely use hand tools.
