      West Lafayette ArchiCamp 2019

      Kids age 8-12 can explore architecture and history at a two-day ArchiCamp at the historic Indiana Veterans’ Home in West Lafayette on June 18-19 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., offered by Indiana Landmarks, the Indiana Veterans’ Home, and the Wabash Valley Trust for Historic Preservation. Through hands-on activities and presentations from preservation professionals, campers will learn about the Veterans’ Home’s Civil War heritage, and how its historic buildings have changed in use and design over time. At the end of the camp, attendees will have an opportunity to create their own designs for the Veterans’ Home. This is the first year for the West Lafayette ArchiCamp. Winner of a prestigious award from the American Association for State and Local History, ArchiCamp encourages children to use their imaginations and powers of observation while teaching them about history, architecture, and renovation. Cost of the camp is $25 and includes refreshments, educational materials, and souvenirs. Campers should bring a sack lunch both days. Enrollment for the camp is limited to 20 children. Reservations are required by June 11. For more information, contact Emily Royer at Indiana Landmarks, 812-232-4534, eroyer@indianalandmarks.org.
