Get Ready for Camp – Kids and Grownups!

Spring is here and before you know it, school will be out for the summer!  What are you or your kids planning to do?

Maker Camp at Pixar

#makercamp 2013 included Making Magic with Pixar


This year, put making on the calendar and find some innovative summer camps to attend in-person and online that will teach your budding inner prototyper or metal-smith how to put all that energy into something with a really cool take-away.
1. Free Maker Camp: A great option no matter where you live is the Maker Camp on Google+. This series of online events provides structured projects that older kids can follow along to and interact with. Pre-registration is required, but there is no fee to attend!
Past camp sessions include tutorials in making instruments, building robots and designing props for movies.  Maker Camp runs from July 7th – August 15th.  And, if you would like to host a camp by providing a space for kids to gather, applications are still open! More info here from Make here.
2. Just for the Grown-ups: An assortment of camps have sprung up that will teach you anything from how to make jewelry to woodworking with hand tools.
Build an airplaneEtsy has curated a list of camps with locations across the country to suit any interest.  Stay for a day or an entire week.
When you’ve sufficiently explored your inner L. da Vinci, send us a picture of your creations!  We love to see what our community comes up with. More info on the Etsy blog here.
