Thanks to all the participants in our Summer 2017 Zen Maker Camps! We hope you had as much fun as we did running the camps.

You can see photos of the camps on our new Zen Maker Lab Photo Site. You will need the password to view the photos (we emailed the parents the password. If your child was in one of our camps and you didn’t receive the password to view the photos, please contact us and we can provide).

Camps

Winter Camps

December 16 & 17 (2 day Saturday and Sunday workshop) – Build a 3D Printer (Tronyx X1)

Build a Gadget Workshops – Dec 28, 2017 and Jan 2, 2018

January 3 to 5, 2017 (3 day camp) – Zen Maker Camp

Note: For the winter camps if your child has already made the MP3+ player or the LED clock, we can have them work on another fun project like our LED holiday decoration or the LED nightlight.

We have been running our maker camps since 2013 and every year we have heard from kids and parents “best camp ever” and we are happy to see the participants learning a bunch of very practical skills while having a lot of fun.

Our camps are for children and youth from 8 to 13 years old. We have a maximum group size of eight kids per adult instructor and a helper and a maximum of two groups of 8 (maximum 16 participants in total). We divide the groups based on age and experience. The Zen Maker Camp Week 1 and Week 2 can be taken together or separately. Both weeks have different content and we have small projects throughout the week and kids can take home a number of the things they have made, e.g. 3D models, laser cut designs, hand made jewellery. In addition to our Zen Maker Camp Week 1 and Week 2, we we also have project based camps where the entire week is focused on one main project. These generally work best for participants who have already taken the Zen Maker Camp Week 1 and Week 2 to build up the foundational skills; however, it is still possible to take them (especially for older kids) without having taken the Zen Maker Camp Week 1 and 2.
