Make Time Summer Camps
Make Time provides an immersive week long set of age appropriate activities for 7 to 12 year olds, developed around a particular theme. Kids experience STEAM concepts using fun games, technology, and art to get hands on learning experiences. In addition, each week also includes time in our Ceramics Studio and outdoor activities such as Archery, Disc Golf (Frisbee Golf), and RC Car Racing. Summer Camp at Make Time is packed FULL of hands-on engaging activities with finished projects for kids to bring home!

May 28-31 (Camp Week 1)
If you can’t get enough bricks then this is your camp! Our LEGO® camp keeps the action going with specially-designed models that are fresh and fun. Using a mix of standard LEGO & specialized Technic pieces (such as gears, axles, and electric motors), students will learn how to create a working LEGO® (pinhole) camera, build a LEGO® mech that holds a Minifigure, and delve into the fine art of stop motion animation with LEGO®. Build your own creations as well during our free-play periods. This week will be a celebration of the brick as we create art, design bots, and test our creations in various competitions. With access to over a MILLION legos, there’s no idea too big!
June 3-7 (Camp Week 2)
At Make Time we love making music. This week we venture into the wonderful world of soundscapes. We’ve chosen a variety of musical instrument projects that will delight builders and music lovers alike. Feeling twittery? Use the 3D printer to create your own wind instruments. Percussionist will bang their way through designing and building Xylophones and Drums. Plucky students will enjoy making and playing the canjo. Join us for this week of what will surely be symphonic harmony (and possibly horror). *Earplugs not included*
June 10-14 (Camp Week 3)
Wood is an amazing resource that can be used for so many projects! Would you like to learn more about cutting and shaping wood, while making something that is both beautiful and functional? In this camp, students will learn how to use hand tools (and some small power tools) such as drills and saws to build a number of projects. Create a tool box that you can keep for yourself (or give to a friend or family member). Use our simple bird house design as a beginning point to create your own hideout for our feathered friends. Students work at their own pace on take home projects that will teach them how to measure accurately, use hand tools safely and care for tools. It’s a week of hands-on fun for those who love to build.
June 17-21 (Camp Week 4)
At Make Time we game. Where else can you battle your pet monster against a friends? Or team up with your buddies and explore a dungeon looking for treasure? This week at Make Time we’ll delve into the wide, wonderful world of games. We will play games as well as make our own! Learn to play D&D, Magic, Lightseekers or Pokemon. Participate in activities like code creation/breaking, designing & 3D printing your own game, and VR Escape Room games. As with all our camps there will be both art and tech based projects to work on all week. Take home your creations at the end of the week!
June 24-28 (Camp Week 5)
This camp is a triple decker burrito of technology (hold the green chili). Are you an aspiring hacker who likes 3D printing, robots and electronics? Then this is your camp! We’ll cover everything from simple programming to electric circuits to how to design and print a 3D object. Our Mars rover challenge will show you what it’s like to control your robot from a remote location (using a wifi camera and video visor). Complete an obstacle course with a robot you program yourself. Learn how a motor works, then build your own that actually functions! Hack an old printer motor to make your own dremel tool/hand drill. Students take home their electronics projects and tools at the end of the week.
July 8-12 (Camp Week 6)
Cardboard can be found just about anywhere these days and when used correctly can be as strong a material as wood. This week we’ll explore art and engineering by designing and building machines (and sculpture) using cardboard combined with parts and mechanisms taken from broken household items. Students will “hack” printer motors, switches and circuits extracted from unwanted/broken electronics and use them to bring cardboard creations to life. Turn a pile of unwanted cardboard into a pinhole camera that actually works! Create your own cardboard arcade game. The possibilities are endless. If you love building without boundaries then this is the week for you!
July 15-19 (Camp Week 7)
This year Make Time is combining the best of both our Solar and Underwater camps to create a “Surf & Sun” camp. We included our super popular “Design and Build Your Own Solar Car from Scratch” project as well as our delicious “Sun Tea” activity, but we also have some new tricks up our sleeve like solar wood burning. Aquatic investigations come to life when we hatch our own Sea Monkeys and Triops. Students will explore how research is done under water by designing, building, and testing mini ROVs (Remotely Operated underwater Vehicles) using custom 3D printed parts. Take your ROV and other creations home at the end of the week.
July 22-26 (Camp Week 8)
Everything is possible in this camp. From magical creatures to haunted castles. Each day will feature team and individual activities that revolve around the inhabitants and creatures of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Anime and other fiction. Anime artists will learn new drawing skills and get to practice the ones they already have. Potter/Jackson fans will discover their inner hero, compete for honor, learn to make wands, armor and spellbooks. Demigods, Wizards & Time Travelers and more will engage in T-Shirt design, Scavenger hunts and other adventures at this out-of-this-world camp!
July 29-Aug 2 (Camp Week 9)
This week camp is all about launching, speed and altitude! We’ll design and build rockets and use the power of compressed air to fire then hundreds of yards (more than a football field). After we cover the basics of Quadcopter flight, students will participate in quadcopter races and challenges. Feed your need for speed with catapult competitions and archery. If it’s altitude you’re looking for then you’ll love Kite photography (& video) project. Test different kite designs to see which is the most stable and easiest to fly. Then attach a camera to your creation and and start flying. Kites go home, but our cameras have to stay :)
Aug 5-9 (Camp Week 10)
Have you always wanted to learn how to draw your own cartoons? What about making your own comic book, manga or graphic novel? This week is packed full of learning how to draw cartoons, anime style characters, Pokemon and more! We’ll explore how to use several drawing programs including Microsoft Paint (free software found on all versions of Windows). End the week by bringing home your drawings, paintings, printed comics and digital copies of your creations!
