Tinker Camp strengthens the essential mindsets in kids, like tenacity and courage, so they will be happy and successful in a STEM-intense future. We invite you and your grown-up friends to take part in an actual Tinker Camp activity. See how narrative-based open tinkering can be completely fun and transformative. You'll have a blast drinking beer and creating The City In Your Future, while at the same time helping us launch an after school drop-in program for middle school makers.

The City in Your Future
Have you ever been on the top floor of a tall building and wondered, wouldn’t it be cool if instead of taking the stairs you could slide to the ground? Do you notice empty lots and think about what you would put there if you could? If the answer is yes, then you already think like a city planner. Cities are built by dreamers and visionaries who meet people's needs while creating beautiful and engaging spaces within the confines of an urban landscape. We know that you are up to the challenge of planning and building your dream city, so pick up tools because together we are going to build the City in Your Future!
