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

Summer camps run from July 3 - Sept 1 inclusive in full-week, 5-day sessions (except Aug 8-11, which is 4 days due to the Civic holiday).

Each week has a different theme (listed below), so you can sign your child up for multiple weeks, and they won’t repeat the same activity.

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 the appropriate weather.

Using tools such as laser cutters, 3D printers, and laptops for designing & coding, your kids will build & customize their own tech projects! Past projects have included walking motorized PenguinBots, rotating lamps and light-up dioramas. Exact projects for each week will be updated soon, but if your kids love making things with others, this is the camp for you!


Weeks 3 (July 17-21), 5 (July 31-Aug 4), 7 (Aug 14-18), 9 (Aug 28-Sept 1): Minecraft + Making

Does your kid talk day & night about Minecraft, or just want to learn what all the hubbub is about? Minecraft is a excellent learning & team-building game where kids will complete quests together, with 1 laptop per child, and also build a real-world item right out of the game! Past projects have included light up CreeperBots, Minecraft Village Builds & more. Exact projects will be updated soon, but if your kids love Minecraft & making things with others, this is the camp for you!
