Maker Camp is free!

Welcome to Maker Camp!

Maker Camp is a free online summer camp for kids ages 8 to 12, and Makers of all ages!

Join young inventors and artists from around the world too. We make awesome projects, go on epic virtual “field trips,” and meet the world’s coolest makers.

Sign up to be a Maker Camp Affiliate site. You’ll inspire kids to embrace their inner maker, get their hands dirty, fix some things, break some things, and have a lot of fun doing it.

Sign Up!

Maker Camp Starts right here on makercamp.com on July 6. Sign up to get updates and fun alerts!
