Calling all creative makers -- the camp you've been waiting for is here! A week-long immersion into design-thinking, collaborating, and making that will spark your curiosity and flex your creative muscles like never before. With the support of expert guides (real-life architects, designers, and makers) you will discover how to turn your unique idea into a reality using the newest tools and technology available. Yes! That means virtual reality, 3D printing, laser cutting, and so much more. By the end of the week you'll have turned your vision into a tangible product, but you'll also have developed critical thinking, learned a ton of new skills, and explored inquiry-based design thinking on a level that will set you up for a future you'll be ready for.

Summer Maker Camp at Bit Space is a week-long immersion into design thinking and making. Each week we introduce a set of tools, techniques, software, and materials to two age groups. Campers work individually, or in small groups, to create something that explores, expresses, and expands upon their creativity and culminates in an exhibition of their work on Friday.
  • Small Groups : We've reduced our Camper-to-Guide ratio to 5:1. That means better access to Guides, more time to explore new ideas, and more authentic design experience.
  • Design Thinking: Your child will lead the way as we foster and develop their individual ideas instead of leading them through projects.
  • Before and after care included: We know many of you are busy, before care (8:30-9:00am) and after care (4:00-5:30pm) are now complementary.
