The Historic Columbus Foundation is introducing a new summer camp program to the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Chattahoochee Valley. Historic Columbus will be hosting two camps this summer, one week in June and one week in July.
The week-long camp will be next week.
The Box City curriculum was developed in 1969 by Ginny Graves, a Kansas City art educator, and her husband, architect Dean Graves.
Box City provides a hands-on experimental approach to community planning and design principles. The curriculum allows students to make their own buildings from cardboard boxes and then to create their own communities by placing the boxes on a base plan.
The awards presentation that is open to the public is 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. June 26 at the Rankin House, 1440 Second Avenue.
