Make things, friends & memories!
Have your child spend their PA Day 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!

Upcoming full-day tech camps in 2022 include these dates (activity for each day are below):

  • Sept 26 and 27
  • Oct 5, 7, 11, 17, 18
  • Nov 7, 18, 25
  • Dec 2

Each day has a different theme, 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.
