Electronics Exploration
So, you want to start making stuff that works? In Electronics Exploration we will take you though the basics of electronics and show you how it all works, with no experience necessary! Electronics Exploration Camp features fun projects that move up in complexity from simple circuitry to building and coding your own AI bug bot. Learn new skills like soldering and unlock a whole new world of blinking, beeping, moving and (sometimes!) shocking fun!

Maker Lab
Our ultimate maker camp! We’re going to explore some super-fun, creative and surprising projects. Some projects are decorative, some are functional, some are large, some are small, some are just ridiculous — but all the projects in Maker Lab Camp are a ton of fun! We train students in proper hand tool & power tool use and teach them some great techniques that help develop a lifetime of making. Come work with your hands, get creative, build some cool stuff, learn some awesome new skills and meet new friends in Maker Lab!

Custom Skateboard Design & Build
It’s riding weather and we’re building skateboards! Why settle for a store-bought board when you can build your own — turning bare wood into a 100% custom skateboard. You’ll design, prototype, paint and decorate your new deck so you can roll in your style. In addition to being a lot of fun, this camp focuses on safe power tool use, craftsmanship and fostering pride in something cool and unique made with your own two hands.

Escape Room
A truly unique Summer Camp that only happens once a year! This special full-day summer camp is sure to unlock your inner puzzle-maker. We turn our entire makerspace into a real escape room designed and built entirely by the campers. From choosing a theme, to setting a mood to creating fiendishly clever puzzles, we are going to build an escape room experience that will be as challenging as it is fun! Escape Room tours are open to family and friends at the end of the week on Friday and Saturday. This is a very special and rewarding Summer Camp experience that is not to be missed!

Cardboard Creations - Battle Armor Camp
Part of our Cardboard Creation series, in Battle Armor you’ll create your own set of battle armor, futuristic space suit, alien exoskeleton or … well, that will be totally up to you! This hands-on class fosters a free-form creative spirit through mini-projects and a multi-session culminating build of their own design. During Battle Armor Camp, campers learn pre-planning, rapid prototyping, useful construction techniques, mechanical engineering basics, decorating skills and proper tool use — oh yeah, and we just have a great time making amazing stuff out of this super-ordinary and readily available material!

Only 1 spot open. Grab it quick!

3D Printing Exploration
What can we make with our 3D printers? Well, that’s up to you! In this class, we’ll take you from sketching to designing to printing your custom creations. This is really a creative design experience where the campers focus on making their own 3D creations and we handle the technical (and sometimes exasperating!) aspects of running the machines. We work in a 3D design environment that’s as easy to use as it is powerful — so no matter what your previous experience, we’ll have you printing your 3D creations in no time!
