There’s nothing like the sight, sound and feel of cascading water to stimulate the imagination! In Riveropolis Maker Camp, kid’s explore art, architecture and engineering as they construct a fantastic model river world with real rain, waterfalls, lakes and islands. Along the banks of the river campers will learn arts and craft techniques as they build houses, towers, castles, gardens, and more. The resulting 35-foot river landscape becomes the centerpiece for a Grand Tour for parents and friends on the final day of camp!
This summer each young architect will design and construct a unique contribution to a County Fair, Carnival & Circus world! Creating for this whimsical theme for 2022 suggests a wide range of creative options from amusement park rides, circus wagons, show animals, agricultural displays, futuristic inventions and more. Creating special features that link individual plots such as fences, walls, gates, roads, bridges, sky-rides, and boats introduces concepts of collaboration, civics and urban design. The resulting 35-foot river landscape becomes the centerpiece for a Grand Tour for parents and friends on the final day of camp! All this with a real 35 foot water river running right through it!
