When ArchiCamp started five years ago in Martinsville, the program was carried out on scholarships and was limited in what they could do. The next year, the Morgan County Historical Preservation Society applied for a small grant through the Community Foundation of Morgan County. With this funding, the program was able to take the participants out into the county as well as bring in local artists to help with lessons.

"ArchiCamp has been around for at least ten years and has been done across the state," said Raina Regan, a community preservation specialist for Indiana Landmarks. The program was establish through the organization, but local preservation organizations host the camp in local communities.
