BitSpace Day Off Camps

School's out? Join us for one full day of design thinking, collaboration, and making!

Registration CLOSED for 2023-2024

Campers will be divided into two groups:

FOR AGES 8 to 14

AGES 8 to 12


AGES 13 to 14


*AGES 13 to 14 is recommended for more experienced BitSpace campers

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.

⚠️ Updated Safety Guidelines

To make camp both fun AND safe for everyone, we've updated our health and safety practices:

Masking During Specific Activities
While we've relaxed general mask requirements, masks will be used during high sawdust activities for additional safety. They help protect campers from airborne particles and dust in the workshop.

Health Monitoring
If your child has a cough or cold symptoms, they will be asked to wear a mask at camp for the safety of all participants. In the event of visible illness symptoms at camp, parents will be expected to pick up their child.

No Vaccination Proof Required
We no longer require proof of vaccination for participation. However, we encourage everyone to follow the latest health guidance to ensure the well-being of all campers and staff.

Dates for the 2024/25 school year will be available at the end of Summer.
