Summer Camp at Academy of Design
Design Thinking: Let’s Get Creative!
At the Academy of Design,
we teach the process of design.
We believe kids are inherently creative and eager to explore new possibilities. Our mission is to enable young designers to brainstorm, generate multiple concepts, commit ideas to paper in a readable form, select materials, understand construction, and then sew a prototype.
Learning is “hands-on”
Each designer chooses his/her unique project. Students learn to sketch, learn about textiles, learn to hand sew and operate sewing machines.
Our fun bright fashion studio is equipped with dress forms for experimenting, spacious work tables, and computerized sewing machines.
The final product is a garment they can wear with pride.
When asked, where did you get that? They can honestly answer, “I designed and made it myself!”

One Day Camps
9am - 5pm
We welcome students from age 8 to 17. Our 1:6 staff to student ratio ensures designers get the attention they deserve. Designers create their own projects and we enable them to sew what they design. There are no restricting themes, so whatever dates work for you work for us! That also means that if a designer attends two weeks, he/she will work on different projects. The full day program will include accessories and décor, as well as flex time or "free sew". Campers will break for lunch and some fresh air outdoors at Twin Pines Park.
