Think Like a Chemist & Rocket Scientist Combo Camp Description:

This camp is for the child who is crazy about science experiments! In this hands-on camp, students will make slime and putty, observe chemical reactions and explore dry ice. Then: Rockets, and Bridges, and Air, oh my! This is the camp known for its Lego play and bring-your-own Nerf artillery. Electricity lessons and a laser light show make this a great Camp for “high energy kids!” 

 Young Tinkerers Camp Description:

Do you have a maker kid on your hands? This is their camp! Simple machines, marble runs, catapults and lots of creations inspired by Leonardo daVinci’s notebooks and Rube Goldberg cartoons. These campers can make a Mini Catapult, Action Figure Parachute, Foam Cube Castle, hand-made “flippers”, giant Vitruvian selves, and more! If your kids like using hand tools or building structures, this is right up their alley.

 Art Meets Science & Kid Technologist Combo Camp Description:

Enjoy take-home art projects with science correlations to stimulate any aspiring scientist/artist. Tie dye, recycle paper, craft textile pompoms, construct a mobile, and make a paint ball shooter with this messy, “out of the box” science experience. Young learners can experience the concepts and components that offer electricity to toys, household items, and the larger world. We’ll take circuitry to the next level when we solder and repair circuits. Camp includes lots of take home circuit board projects and opportunities for adding light, movement, and sound to the campers’ creations.

Junior Helpers for Little Kid Camps:

Sign up here, if your camper has been approved as a helper. Please note which camps you’ll attend in the notes section, or send us an email with this info.

Tinker & Code: Electronics Lab Camp Description –

In this camp, young learners can experience the concepts and components that offer electricity to toys, household items, and the larger world. We’ll take circuitry to the next level when we solder and repair circuits. Camp includes lots of take home circuit board projects and opportunities for adding light, movement, and sound to the campers’ creations. Depending on skill levels, this camp may include Arduino basics, too.

Young Designer: Special Effects/Costume Makers Camp Description –

Design Thinking rules at this camp for creatives and techies, too. Explore Graphic Design, 3D Printing, Parametric Modeling, Sewing, Stenciling, Etching, Cyanotyping, Electronics, and more. We will use hands-on making, hardware, software, and even some coding to make campers’ designs come to life in just one week!

Kids CNC Machining & 3D Printing Camp Description –

Digital fabrication is a design and manufacturing workflow that takes ideas, turns them digital, then makes them come to life in the physical world. Kids who attend this camp will learn design for 2D making and 3D printing. Next they’ll 3D print things and make original wooden signs on our CNC router.

*Each camp will be limited to 6-8 campers. Age restrictions are flexible. Talk to us if you have a learner who is an outlier and can benefit from being with older/younger campers.

Read our cancellation/change policies here.

All Camps cost $350, until June 1, when price will increase to $400 (Early Bird discount pricing of $250 ends March 15.)
