  • Camp Description

    Guided by the Wanger Family Fab Lab team, new campers will explore projects from a list of activities that build upon each other. They will have opportunities to imagine, design, fabricate and share their projects with their peers. Returning campers can re-explore these projects in more depth, or create new projects of their own design that are fueled by their imagination.

Scholarships for camp fees are available for students and their families who demonstrate financial need. Contact us for details.
