Maker Camps – Summer 2018

Attention young makers!


Come to the Fort Collins Creator Hub and explore the world of making. We are pleased to be running several Maker Camps this summer.

Two-week day camps will be hosted at the Fort Collins Creator Hub, providing a unique array of skilled makers, technology, and tools. There will be a morning camp for ages 10+ focused on Design and Technology and an afternoon camp for ages 12+ focused on Shop Skills. No previous experience is required.

The camps run two weeks, Monday-Friday, July 9 – July 20.

Each two-week session (morning and afternoon) will cost $350. Registration will be through the Fort Collins Recreator.

Design and Technology: 8:30AM – 12:30PM

Students will learn how to design and fabricate objects on our 3D printers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters and CNC router. They will also learn how to solder and learn basic electronics and programming skills. We will cover open source and cloud-based design applications such as OpenSCAD, Inkscape, TinkerCad, and Sketchup. Ages 10 to 17. The activity code for registration is 315970-01.

Shop Skills: 1PM – 5PM

The Set Design and Woodworking half-day camp with Zach Yendra will provide the opportunity to design functional, physical objects and then fabricate them with professional woodworking tools. Students will learn how to safely operate power woodworking tools that can be used to custom build common domestic items such as bookshelves, picture frames, tables, and planter boxes. Ages 12 to 17. The activity code for registration is 315970-02.
