This camp goes beyond the drawing board, providing opportunities for campers to build scale models, test their creations, and even participate in friendly design competitions. Through this immersive experience, campers will not only gain insight into the fascinating world of theme park engineering but also develop valuable skills in teamwork, problem-solving, and project management.

  •         Use CAD to design 3D-printed objects
  •         Design rides for the future
  •         Participate in first-hand physics experiments
  •         Battle Bot design competition
  •         Amusement Park Scavenger Hunt
