Join Us!

Are you a high school student (age 15+) interested in learning about a career in architecture, art, or product design? For one week each summer, we invite you to come join us at the White Stag Block for this unique camp experience. At the UO Design Camp, you will engage in thoughtful, creative conversations, design exercises, and field trips with professional architects and designers. Join us and discover your creative calling and your place within Portland’s design community.

Architecture
UO Design Camp gives students interested in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design a chance to explore Portland’s exciting architecture scene, and to model 3-dimensional spaces of their own designs.

Art & Technology
Students will explore how digital technologies like animation, graphics, and web design function and how art and technology come together to create culture.

Product Design
The product design curriculum in UO Design Camp explores how new products are created – from the drawing board to production. Students will have the opportunity to design and prototype products that make our world a safer, more sustainable, or just a more joyful place to live.
