Maker Camp


Digital Harbor Foundation is excited to announce 2016 Maker Camp!

Youth in grades 3-12 will have the opportunity to engage in camp experiences focused on 3D Printing, Circuits & Electronics, Minecraft, & much more. They will be able to learn and sharpen their skills in one of these areas while working hands-on with materials.

Maker Camp provides age-appropriate, engaging, and creative pathways to technology and engineering knowledge. We offer beginning, intermediate, and advanced programs in core skills that meet and enhance national and local STEM teaching standards, and that have been shown to lead youth to college and career readiness, encourage self-efficacy, and build lifelong learning strategies.

All camps are Pay What You Can and are held at the DHF Tech Center.
