Have you been learning to 3D print using TinkerCAD software? Let’s take a step up into parametric CAD software to design 3D printed and laser cut parts that work together to create dimensional products. We’ll work on designing pieces for projects to make them move when incorporating power. We’ll use design thinking to solve creative challenges. We’ll use free, browser-based software, OnShape, as our design tool. Get ready for some high-functioning creativity! This camp is run in partnership with the Einstein Project

COVID-19 Policies & Guidelines

In order to create a camp environment that allows us to operate during the pandemic we have enhanced some of our normal practices and added some new policies. These policies were created using recommendations from The American Camp Association, YMCA, Environmental Health Engineering, Inc and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our COVID-19 Policies are meant to give an overview of the practices and policies that WILL be in place during summer 2021, based what we know now. These can and will change as we approach camp start dates; we are continuously updating the information listed here to adapt to current conditions. We will also notify our registered camp families directly with the final practices and policies that will be in place during summer 2021 to support our goal to avoid COVID-19 at camp.
