Thank you for your interest in our Maker Camp.  Unfortunately, Maker Camp has reached its maximum capacity.  Lucky for you, we have many camps that are just as great! These camps still have space available, so be sure to check them out and we hope that you would be interested in registering for one of them.

This new Maker Camp, developed in partnership with Lyndon Institute, is a week-long, hands-on day camp for students in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade who are interested in creating, designing, inventing, tinkering, hacking, engineering and making things with their hands. Daily workshops allow campers the opportunity to design and make a cool project each day! Projects and activities will take full advantage of the sophisticated resources available at Lyndon Institute such as 3D printing, welding, laser etching and more. The full day camp runs daily from 8 a.m.–4 p.m. and includes lunch on the LSC campus and recreation activities like use of the climbing wall, swimming pool, ropes course and more.
