Creative Computing with Scratch - June 4-8
Fun with Coding and Circuit Boards - June 11-15 and July 23-27
This hands-on camp will feature the BBC micro:bit hardware, Circuit Playground boards and Microsoft MakeCode software and Makey Makey Invention Kits for use with the popular Scratch Programming Language. The micro:bit is a tiny computer that offers kids an opportunity learn electronics, coding, and prototyping. The Makey Makey is a fun circuit board that lets curious campers make household items into working computer keys. Circuit Playground boards combine the capabilities of these two boards and offer even more potential because of the many sensors they incorporate. Click here for more info or to register.
Innovation through Creative Design and 3D Printing - June 18-22 and July 16-20
This camp features five days of creative thinking, learning new skills, then bringing ideas to life. Choose one track, or try them all: 3D Printing, Graphic Design, Stop-motion Animation, Sewable/Wearable technology, making with textiles, and more. Come with your own ideas, or use our daily brainstorm session to inspire the things you'll make and do at camp. This camp is okay for students who have no experience, and for those who have some exposure to design software and/or concepts.

Delve into all things STEM with electronics, coding, maker projects, drones, robotics, 3D printing, and more.
Video Game Creators - July 9-13, August 20-24
Drones and Robotics - August 6-10
Campers will use their brains to problem solve, code, and learn how computers “think” while controlling multiple types of robots and drones in fun daily labs. In the latter part of each day, we’ll even build and solder our own robot drones that students can take home for continued fun and learning.
