High school students will have the opportunity to develop creativity and design skills in fun and unique ways when they register for Design WV Summer Camp at West Virginia University.

Hosted by the Division of Design and Merchandising in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, the camp will be held July 28 – Aug. 1.

“This will be a great way for students to learn basic photography, sketching, painting, collage and computer design skills with like-minded peers while getting acquainted with WVU and the surrounding community,” said Elijah Pollard, coordinator of the camp and visiting assistant professor of design and merchandising. “We’ve also created a four-day scavenger hunt to help students learn the elements and principles of design.”

Students will also have the opportunity to learn about careers in the fields of interior design, fashion design and merchandising, and other design-related industries.

Additionally, the camp will partner with Adventure WV to offer outdoor recreational and peer-bonding activities.

The camp fee is $475 which includes three meals per day, dorm lodging and art supplies.

Registration is open until all of the camp spaces are filled; however, space is limited.
