One-Day Tinkering Camp

Come build amazing eco-friendly creations with us! Tinkering Camp teaches children the skills they need to turn their wildest imaginings into robust items made from cardboard, wood, plastic, metal, and fabric.

Camp will run with a minimum of 6 campers.

One-Day Tinkering Camps happen during most school holidays. See the current schedule.

Beginning with tool technique and safety training, the day progresses through exciting rapid design challenges and brainstorming methods to get participants ready for a big afternoon project of their own creation. We provide tools from scissors to power drills, a wide variety of versatile and inspiring materials, and just the right amount of staff guidance to let kids take ownership of the skills they acquire and the super-cool contraptions they bring to life from their imaginations. No one with open toed shoes, loose hair or clothing will be allowed in the shop. Parent Camp Information
