School Year Camps

During BADM School Year camps, kids have fun exploring creative themes and solving unique challenges that get them excited to explore STEM topics and try out new ideas in a hands-on way.

Campers must be toilet trained and have experience with separation from their caregiver in a drop-off setting. Campers must be 4 – 6 years old by the start of the camp they are attending. Fab Lab Maker Camp is for children 7 - 10 years old.
