Camp Description:

The Launch Pad’s summer Maker’s Camp brings DIY creativity to your life! Want more independence and opportunity in your life, then join the DIY (Do it Yourself)/Makers Movement with The Launch Pad Teen Center.  This is a 2 week camp where teens will learn skills like black-smithing, wood working, screen printing t-shirts, and even making artisanal cheese.  Teens will have an opportunity to complete at least 5 different projects, meet at least 5 skilled Makers/Artisans in the Prescott Community and work in their studios, and even sell what they make on the final day of camp at The Prescott Farmer’s Market.

This is what journalist, Brit Morin has said of the Maker’s Movement, “Makers will continue to be found in fields ranging from food to crafts to technology.  And together, they will push each other forward to invent and build new and innovative things.  Many technologies that will drive this growing population are not event built yet.  In effect, the maker movement has only just begun.”  It is up to all of us to create the future we want and learning how to make is the first step.
