ALL ACCESS MAKER CAMP

Access Maker Camp

 
All Access Maker Camp is a fun week of exploring the Intrepid Museum, solving problems, experimenting with new tools and technology, and designing projects! This camp is specifically for children ages 8–14 with developmental disabilities, including autism.

The camp provides an in-depth learning opportunity for campers to practice social-emotional skills, including problem-solving, communication and collaboration. Campers try out design challenges related to the ship, aircraft and space, and they go behind the scenes to meet with experts.

  • Overview of Staff and Resources

    • All staff and interns are specially trained in working with children with disabilities in the museum setting. Visual schedules, illustrated instructions, multisensory opportunities and clear expectations will help campers transition into the week, focus on the tasks at hand and have fun. Children will receive instruction on and access to all tools and materials in the camp workshop area, from the tactile (Legos, model magic, tinfoil, paper, etc.) to the digital (littleBits electronics kits, computer-assisted design software and 3D printers).
  • When

    • All Access Maker Camp 2.0 welcomes previous campers back for another week of solving problems, experimenting with tools and technology, and designing projects!

They will revisit both low- and high-tech tools and materials and try out new ones. Campers will have the opportunity to dig deeper into their favorite topics and have fun in a now-familiar setting where there is still much to discover.

      Dates: August 27–31, from 9:00am to 3:00pm each day
