Hacker Lab
If you don’t know whether to say “that’s totally amazing!” or “I don’t know if that’s such a good idea,” then we’re probably going to make it in Hacker Lab! No, we’re not training junior computer hackers here — In Hacker Lab Camp, we repurpose existing tech to do something it was never meant to do. This is a very hands-on camp that has campers delving into electronics, mechanics, reverse engineering and a little coding too. Come explore the weird side of making!

Harry Potter Camp
A truly magical Summer Camp experience! Harry Potter Camp explores the maker side of the wizarding world. Full of lots of hands-on take-home projects, this camp explores wand-making, magical oddities, curious creatures and how to use chemistry and physics to conjure the magical in our sadly non-magical world. Bring a sense of adventure, your tinkering skills and an open mind to the magical arts. Open to pure-bloods and muggles alike, this camp is more fun than a sack full of Weasleys' Wildfire Whiz-bangs!

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!

Drone Pilot Race School
Did mom ever tell you not to fly your drones in the house? We sure wont! Learn to pilot, race and repair quadcopters — all on our indoor race course that we design and build together. You’ll learn to fly and race using your own mini quadcopter drone that you get to customize and take home at the end of camp. Once you master the basics, we’ll spend some time racing our in-house fleet of FPV tiny whoop class quads. These First Person View (FPV) drones are equipped with tiny video cameras that you pilot using video goggles. One of our most popular camps!

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.

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!
