Tinkering School LA, ages 7-12

Come build amazing things with us! Tinkering School LA teaches children the skills they need to work confidently in wood, plastic, and metal to build robust structures as wild as their imaginations. With a 4:1 camper to facilitator ratio, our fully stocked workshop provides a safe and supportive environment for personal growth through skills development and creative construction. No one with open toed shoes, loose hair, or loose clothing will be allowed in the workshop.

Tinkering School LA Juniors

Tinkering School LA Juniors is a one week day camp that challenges children ages 5-7 to go beyond project building and enter a world of imagination. Children are inspired by tinkering and visual arts exercises meant to feed advanced thinking and creative building of works with big impact and a story behind them. Campers will get the best of both worlds: artist training plus tinkering with tools. No one with open toed shoes, loose hair, or loose clothing will be allowed in the workshop.

Tinkering School LA Masters

Tinkering School LA Masters Camp provides a camp experience unique in Southern California for teens to tinker with wood, metal, and reclaimed materials, all while gaining design and fabrication skills. Working with master mechanical sculptor Aaron Kramer, teens ages 11-16 will design, prototype, build, and tinker with a wide range of tools and materials. Power tools, engineering, machines, and inventing all come into play. Participants will gain an understanding of the engineering design process, working as a team towards a group goal. Unlike our other camps this is a focused deep dive into a STEAM inspired experience.
