Maker Camp

Maker Camp, sponsored by MAKE magazine, is a summer camp with a focus on using science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) to create, build, and discover. Golden Gate Learning Center integrates history & culture to bring those projects to life. Every day Maker Campers learn about Makers of the past while becoming the Makers of the future.  Campers (entering 2nd-6th grade) rotate by age group every day to all four Maker Camp components: Engineering, Tech Lab, Art Exploration & ReCreation. Whether it's with wires, gears or glue, we help them Make connections they didn't know existed. We keep a comfortable 8:1 camper-to-staff ratio so these makers have all the help they need to succeed.
