Campers will learn to use the web to tell rich, interconnect stories using blogging, graphic design, animation and a wide variety of skills. We will teach the beginning levels of HTML, CSS and Javascript languages, as well as helping kids develop good clean graphic design skills!


Session 2 - June 10-14

Ages 6-8

Intro to Coding Level 2 & Minecraft Camp

Campers will expand their knowledge of coding using robotics and by creating their own video games using one of the most popular video game software packages available - developed by the engineers at MIT. This camp employs a split day format where campers get to spend the morning learning/practicing programming skills, and the afternoon is spent completing cooperative Minecraft challenges.

Campers will build and program Lego EV3 Mindstorms – designed to help children take ownership of the learning process, enabling them to actively develop the problem-solving skills and collaborative outlook necessary to become creators, not just consumers. This camp employs a split day format where campers get to spend the morning learning robotics and coding skills, and the afternoon is spent completing cooperative Minecraft challenges.

Ages 12-14

Build & Code Your Own Computer with Python

Campers will assemble their own computer (which they will take home with them at the end of the week) including a Raspberry Pi board to act as its CPU. After assembling the computer, campers will use the Python programming language to create their own games, and to expand their computer so it can interact with circuits they build themselves.  Students will learn the basics of interacting with other devices online so that they can code their computers to be part of the Internet of Things (IOT) and communicate with phones, tablets, and other connected devices. By the end of the week, campers will have the experience and resources to continue creating with their new computer at home.


Session 3 - June 17-21

Ages 6-8

Maker Camp 

This camp is for kids who like to make interesting, artistic, and technical inventions! We will make a variety of amazing projects that move, draw, fly, grab, and most of all make kids think.

Ages 9-11

Build & Code Your Own Computer w/ Python

Campers will assemble their own computer (which they will take home with them at the end of the week) including a Raspberry Pi board to act as its CPU. After assembling the computer, campers will learn how to program it to play games, interact with an included expansion board hosting lights, buttons, and sensors. This fun and challenging camp will expand kid’s understanding of how computers work and their coding skills. These skills will allow them to continue programming their new computer when they bring it home.

Ages 12-14

Photography & Photo Editing

Campers will dive into the world of Digital Photography, learning to manipulate their own (or one of our) DSLR cameras to control aperture - and therefore depth of field - shutter speed, and programmable operational modes. We will learn and practice tried and true photography skills, as well as dive into the world of Photoshop and photo editing. Campers will bring home a range of their work in digital and print form.


Session 4 - June 24-28

Ages 6-8

Lego WeDo Robotics Camp

Campers will complete a series of challenges which require engineering, creativity, and imagination to solve problems using the LEGO WeDo robotics kits. WeDo helps teach how technology plays an active role in the students' everyday life and is an ideal product for teaching across different subjects at primary levels such as Literacy, Science, Mathematics, Technology and Engineering. This camp employs a split day format where campers get to spend the morning learning robotics and coding skills, and the afternoon is spent completing cooperative Minecraft challenges.

Ages 9-11

Digital Media Production

Your children will get to explore a wide range of topics in DMP Camp. We will delve into digital photography with our Nikon DSLR cameras (or your camper can bring their own so we can help her learn to operate it!). We will explore Photoshop and Illustrator as handy dandy tools for Digital Media production. We will also spend some time creating our own stories through film and stop motion animation.

Ages 12-14

VEXIQ Robotics

Campers with engage in a series of fun and challenging projects and competitions using the VEX IQ robotics system to build and code their own robotic creations. Using the same building systems and programming language (ROBOTC) our competitive teams use in the fall, campers will learn mechanical and drive systems needed to create robots that move, grab, and lift objects guided by remote control or autonomous code.  The robots abilities will be extended through the use of sensors which can be coded to measure angle, distance, color, and sense touch to extend the robot’s abilities and complete more complex tasks.  This camp is a great starting place for kids who wish to join competitive VEX Robotics competitions on their school teams or on teams we sponsor through Young Makers Lab. Late afternoon activities include Minecraft Challenges on our in-house servers.
