The Greenbelt MakerSpace has what you need and what your kids want! This is our third year of providing camps designed to engage our campers in hands-on activities that they enjoy so much, they forget they are learning core skills in computer science and engineering.

Our Taste of Tech camp will offer a variety of topics with kids choosing their own area of focus and level of challenge (with input from parents, of course). We will be using MIT Scratch for animation of stories and games, Gamestar Mechanic for game design, LEGO Mindstorms for robotics, and Minecraft for both play and additional programming challenges in JavaScript and Python.

Our camps are designed for kids 9 to 14 with advanced projects available for older students.

This is a five day camp with optional morning and/or afternoon care to meet your schedule needs. Fees, rebates, or refunds will be processed on the first day of camp.

Early Bird Registration ends on May 1, 2016. A $50 deposit is non-refundable. Full payment is due June 1. No refund without a replacement camper. Please contact us if you need financial assistance or if you have more than one camper.

  • Daily Schedule:

    • Morning care, arrive at 7am, $25 extra
    • Day camp, 9:00-3:30, $250
    • After camp, leave by 6pm, $75 extra

After your deposit is received, you will receive a participant survey and a link to make your final payment. You may, of course, register or make payments in person at the MakerSpace. Not sure where we are? Find us here.
