Make things, friends & memories!
Have your child spend their March Break meeting new friends & learning tech skills at The Maker Bean Cafe at 1052 Bloor St. West! Using tools such as laser cutters, 3D printers & wood-working tools, and with 1 laptop per child, your children will create something straight out of their imaginations!
March Break 2023 dates are Monday, March 20 - Thurs, March 23, 2023 inclusive (no camp on Fri, March 24).
Each day has a different theme (listed below), so you can sign your child up for multiple camps, and they won’t repeat the same activity. Themes for each day are described below.
For kids 6-12 years old, both experienced & new makers alike.
Kids also head outdoors for at least 1.5 hours per day to Dufferin Grove or Dovercourt Parks (5-minute walks from The Maker Bean) for active games & fresh air. Please ensure your kids are dressed for outdoor time during the winter.
Lunch and snacks available (veggie options available too), +$18, use drop down menu and add lunch to cart
