Projects are selected to actively engage students in the act of building and to creatively explore a variety of design media and methods. Past participants reported that the work completed in previous summer sessions has been invaluable in building their student portfolios for college admission.

Dalton Tasset, a 2016 participant from Rockwall, told us the experience strengthened his desire to become an architect. “Summer@CAPPA was awesome," said Tasset. "I got to learn about the thinking process behind the idea of how a building gets created. There is an art behind it, an idea of a wow factor, and a connection between the person and the building. I will definitely think more in depth of how to design my buildings in the future, rather that just putting walls into Revit.”

"My adventures in architecture began with an architecture camp at UTA some two decades ago.  To a tenderfoot high school sophomore like me, the camp was an eye opening experience into the realm of design, drawing, and model-making craft.”
