One-Day Holiday Camp

Our One-Day Holiday Camp is packed with STEM activities, project ideas, and exploration on days when schools are closed. Holiday Camps are available in our Lexington and Newton Studios, for kids grades 2 – 8.

Explore our most popular program, Tech & Design Exploratory, at our One-Day Holiday Camp. It’s for kids with a day off from school who want to explore a wide range of fun technology, find out what options are available, and begin to realize their areas of greatest passion. Holiday campers will have a wide range of options to check out, including Video Game Design, Digital Animation, Stop-Motion Animation, EV3 Robotics, 3D Art & Printing, 3D Architecture, Digital Audio Production, and Coding/Programming Fundamentals in Scratch, Python, and Java. Campers are encouraged to dive into several options and then dig deeper in areas that excite and inspire them. The goal by day’s end is for each camper to have a completed project to show off to friends and family!

Schedule & Cost

Holiday Camp runs for a full day, from 8:30am-4pm. Extended day option is available until 5:30pm.

Holiday Camp costs $189 for the full day. If your child is a member of our BUILD program, cost is $170.
