Maker Faire Camp introduces campers to the Maker Movement by fostering do-it-yourself creation, engineering principles, spatial reasoning, coding concepts, and problem-solving skills bringing project ideas to life through experimentation and exploration.  Join us for a balance of indoor and outdoor time with an emphasis on fun, creativity, and problem solving as we work on making, creating, crafting, tinkering...Previous projects include robotics, programming, 3-D printing and creating powered watercraft for the pool. This program will be directed by Dr. Marie Farson who has extestive experience in teaching and practicing these skills.

When not Making, campers will participate in main camp activities, such as:
