Create and Design Camp
Ages 7-10
During this camp, we will be turning old clothes into something new—using design thinking as future clothing designers and fashionistas. Campers will devise a plan to design old articles of clothing to make them new again. Using a variety of techniques, their imagination, and creativity—campers will work with tools such as fabric scissors, fabric glue, Bedazzlers, rhinestones, snaps, and beads. Campers will also learn how to design clothing using tie-dye. As we learn to think outside the box, we will do some cooking to create food masterpieces like cakes, cookies, bread pudding, ice cream, and chocolate bars. Of course, we will have lots of fun!

Google Innovation and Creation Camp (Formerly Makers Camp)
Ages 10-15
Welcome to the Google Affiliated Innovation and Design camp movement! Innovation and Design are inspired by the maker movement, which brings together people who like to create, make and explore - all while having FUN! Campers in Innovation and Design Camp will have opportunities to tinker, question, experiment, try something new, challenge themselves, work in teams, and get a little messy! Join us for a week of “making” awesome projects, virtual "field trips," and connecting with like-minded young makers from around the world on Google+. Innovation and Design Camp will inspire your camper to embrace their inner maker, get their hands dirty, fix some things, break some things, and have a lot of fun doing it!
