Who is a Maker?

We believe everyone has the potential to be a maker: to be inspired to imagine, create, and share personally meaningful projects. Empower your campers to identify themselves as makers. We recognize that kids are much more likely to see themselves as makers when they feel part of a creative community.

Because you are running a Maker Camp, we’re guessing you agree. A maker makes things; it’s that simple. Robots, rockets, 3D prints, animation, furniture, fashion—the list is as endless as our imaginations. Maybe you’d like to build vehicles in the shapes of cupcakes, or whole worlds out of wooden toothpicks. Being a maker isn’t some distant goal your campers will only achieve after years of work. They can start making right now.

Maker Camp June 18, 2021
Maker Camp is a do-it-yourself online resource to help leaders like you organize a summer camp that engages children in making. Our goal is to provide you and your campers with the inspiration and the helpful resources, along with many possible projects to fit a wide range of interests and abilities. The idea is to focus on making as a playful, social activity. Maker Camp provides enough support for anyone to get started. Making provides experiences that help children become self-directed learners and good problem-solvers.
