All one-week camp sessions cost $370. Fab Lab two-week camp sessions cost $740

*All Fab Lab camp sessions (2nd-4th Graders) are offered in two week sessions only. This allows campers to get more in-depth knowledge of the innovative tools and technologies in the Fab Lab.


To be eligible for preschool camps, children must be 3 years old by June 3, 2019.

Campers must be potty-trained to attend preschool camp, as we do not have the facilities to change diapers. Campers must have experience separating from caregivers in a drop-off setting, such as school.

Junior Counselors: 4th-9th Grade

The Junior Counselors program is a perfect way for older children to experience a BADM Discovery Camp. As Junior Counselors, fourth through ninth graders will spend the week supporting and assisting their lead teacher, while developing leadership skills and exploring teaching strategies. Junior Counselors help facilitate camp activities and their interactions with younger campers lead to them becoming role models for the younger children. Junior Counselors may be placed in all camps, with the exception of preschool and Fab Lab camps.

  • 9 a.m.-1 p.m., $200 per week
  • No Junior Counselors Weeks 1, 5, 12
