Calling all young creative makers!
The camp you've been waiting for is here!
Summer Maker Camp
For Ages 9 - 16
A week-long immersion into design thinking, collaborating and making that will spark kids' curiosity and flex their creative muscles like never before.
Where Kids Come to Ideate and Turn Their Ideas Into a Reality
With our guidance + access to cutting-edge tools and technology, every child can confidently turn their vision into a tangible product by the end of the week.
Along the way, they'll develop critical thinking practice a ton of new skills, and learn inquiry-based design thinking.
❝At BitSpace, I get to use tools that I never would've been able to❞
(Tools) like laser cutters, 3D printers, coding and virtual reality. That would've never been provided at school for me so I'm very grateful for that.
And I think it's super chill to just to hang out with the guides, talk to other people and just like work on a project for a few hours. It's so relieving from being at home and being cooped up inside the house."

Empower your child with skills that will help them
survive THRIVE in an AI-led environment
With Artificial Intelligence gradually replacing jobs, soft skills like creativity have become 10x more valuable because they CANNOT be replicated.
"Even though AI can perform complex calculations and analyses, soft skills are far more difficult to replicate in a machine."
What You'll LOVE About This Year's BitSpace Summer Camp
We know how kids get "no" in school all the time, so we're leaving "themes" behind and letting your camper decide what to create.
1:5 (or Less) Guide-to-Camper Ratio
Campers get more individual attention from expert guides and plenty of time to explore new ideas and authentic design experiences.
21st-Century Skills Development
Kids develop essential skills that will help them thrive in a turbulent job market: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creative Thinking.
State-of-the-art tools & technology
Students get hands-on access to our 3D printers, programmable electronics, virtual reality integration, and so much more to prototype their idea before building them.
Traditional Woodworking Training
We teach our students basic woodworking skills to help them build their ideas and grow confident with using power tools.
Students sharpen their ability to solve sophisticated problems in meaningful ways by engaging in college-level critical thinking.
Valuable Life Skills Development
Gain time management skills, apply persistence and determination, and showcase communication skills with end-of-the week presentations!

Our COVID-19 Safety Measures
We're pulling out all the stops to make sure that BitSpace is completely safe place for your child!
By the end of April 2021, ALL our guides will have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
Everything inside the facility - from tools to frequently touched surfaces - will be disinfected OFTEN.
Everyone will be wearing face masks, working AT LEAST 6 feet apart and will have separate working spaces.
Our 5,000 sq ft space can be occupied by ONLY 12 kids at a time to greatly minimize contact.
We've guided THOUSANDS of ideas into reality
These are just a few of the (so many) cool projects we've helped kids bring to life during summer camp. And we'll help your young camper come up with their own or refine their idea if they already have one.
