Our camp leaders are Sacred Heart Academy educators. They are familiar with our campus and will help your son or daughter feel comfortable the very first day of camp!

It will be a hands-on, fun filled week of basic coding, 3D Printing, solar cooking, marshmallow shooters, squishy circuits, scribble bots and more. This camp will be designed to get your children interested in Making or encourage the curiosity and interest they already possess.

Activities will take place indoors and outdoors, weather dependent.
"The Maker Camp was a great experience for my kids. The projects were interesting and the instructors were wonderful! My kids felt safe and came home happy every day. They can't wait to do it again."
