Tell Me More

Our doors are wide open for young campers whose idea of fun on a no school day is immersing themselves in creative work!

We'll provide your child with the tools and the support they need to take an idea from creation to completion.

At the end of the day, they get to take home a really cool project to proudly show family and friends!

 

Program Walkthrough

BitSpace is committed to your child's safety. We start each camp with extensive safety and awareness training.

Campers will start each day with a group skill-building exercise to learn new skills or hone existing ones.

Given the small class size, campers will have more agency over their work than ever. Although our day off camps are more free form, we will be restricting the size of projects to roughly the size of a backpack or smaller (18 x 12 x 9) to prevent projects and subsequent contact areas spreading out too wide.

Lunch is at noon every day; if the weather's nice, we'll go to the playground at Gross Park.

We encourage campers to take their work home with them! "If you make it, you can take it!"

Each camper is expected to participate in a Bit Space-wide cleanup at the end of the day.
