Maker Camp









The Georgetown Library is now a Maker Camp site! The Maker Camp is sponsored by Make: and Google.  From July 7 until August 15 we will be doing exciting experiments and projects every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1-3 p.m..  Children 8 and above and teens are invited to come join the fun every day of the camp or just whenever they are free, there is no registration necessary.  And every Friday at 2 p.m. you can join us at the library or at home for a streaming Field Trip to places like Cartoon Network, Lego Land and Jim Henson's workshop! For more information please visit the Maker Camp website or the Georgetown Library.



Week 1: July 7-11
Makers in Motion 

Be it by land, sea, or air, makers are always moving, using the things we build to propel ourselves forward with the power of our imaginations. Being a part of Maker Camp means you’re on the move as well, and it’s no coincidence we’ll be launching this awesome summer-long journey from the spaceport to the future, the New York Hall of Science.

Streaming Field Trip Friday to Google Treks at 2 p.m. on July 11.

Week 2: July 14-18
Art and Design

When we make something, we’re infusing it with a little bit of ourselves, whether it’s a robot or a painting, and this week campers get to try their hands at merging form and function to create things that are beautiful as well as useful. People say it’s important to create art for art’s sake; at Maker Camp we make for making’s sake.

Streaming Field Trip Friday to Cartoon Network Studios at 2 p.m. on July 18.

Week 3: July 21-25
Fun & Games

It wouldn’t be summer if we couldn’t take a little time to play, and this is the week we devote to making fun. Let’s get outside and fly a homemade kite, or build a fort, or invent a new and exciting game to play with the friends we’ve met at Maker Camp. Whatever the outcome of the game, everyone wins when we make it ourselves.

Streaming Field Trip Friday to Lego in Billund, Denmark at 12 noon and Disney at 2 p.m. on July 25.

Week 4: July 28-August 1
Science & Technology

Makers push the boundaries—where others see roadblocks, we see opportunities to overcome using our imaginations and the tools around us. And if something we need doesn’t yet exist, we make it ourselves. As part of Maker Camp, you accept the challenge to look forward, dream of better things, and then figure out how to make them a reality. It’s up to every one of us to create the future, and learning how to make is the first step.

Streaming Field Trip Friday to Google’s self-driving car team at 2 p.m. on August 1.

Week 5: August 4-8
DIY Music

We may not know the name of the song, but if you hum a few bars, we can probably build an instrument to play it on. At Maker Camp this week, we celebrate music by learning how we can make it ourselves. While building a guitar or an amplifier may seem like something only craftspeople can do, you’d be surprised what you can make with a few parts scrounged from around your home. And once you’ve made your own instrument, it’ll be time to jam with the other campers, and make some noise!

Streaming Field Trip Friday to Blue Man Group at 2pm on August 8th.

Week 6: August 11-15
Make: Believe

In a world where the line between reality and fantasy is thinner than a carbon nanotube, making our imaginations come true can be a whole lot of fun. In this final week of Maker Camp, we bring a little Hollywood magic to life, learning about special effects and make-up, and exploring the make in make believe.

Streaming Field Trip Friday to Jim Henson’s Creature Shop at 2 p.m. on August 15.
