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.
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 help campers transition into the week, focus on the tasks at hand and have fun. Campers learn about and use a wide range of materials, both low tech (LEGOs, clay, foil, craft supplies) and high tech (robotics kits, computer-assisted design software and 3D printers), as they solve problems, experiment and invent.
All sessions are offered Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm.
