Join our Award-Winning Kids Programs: Robotics, Coding or Minecraft

Real-World Technical Skills

Kids learn industry-leading technologies, equipping them for high-earning careers of the future.

Putting Projects into Practice

Kids don’t just learn programming concepts – they get to use them to make real projects like games.

Confidence & Social Skills

Embedded in all our programs are social skill lessons, and the chance for kids to socialize with like-minded peers.

A Positive Approach to Tech

We want every child to leave MakerKids with the belief that they can use technology to shape the world around them.

Virtual camps for every age, level and interest

Beginner, experienced and advanced options available. Please select your camp based on the grade your child will be going into.

Enjoy the flexibility of scheduling safe virtual camps – our 2-hour programs are easy to fit into your day.

Mini Makers introduces kids to our core technology topics: Coding, Robotics, and Minecraft. Your child will get to work on a variety of projects each day in small groups. They will design their own video game, create robotic inventions, explore the 3D design world of Minecraft, and do STEM experimentation. Each day your child will build on the skills they’ve learned, leaving with transferable technical and social skills.

The daily cross-discipline exposure focuses on valuable skills and allows kids to see progress as their abilities grow. Their projects tie back to this theme to reinforce the importance of interconnectivity in technology.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Confidence, Design, Problem-solving, Game Design, Electronics and Planning

Breaks and games are also included for kids to exercise their imagination, have fun and strengthen team-building.

Our Grade 1-2 camps are split between Beginner (no experience required) and Experienced (some coding experience) levels.

  • MiniMakers (Gr 1-2) Beginners: focus on introductory concepts in coding and robotics while experimenting with the fundamentals of electricity and programming in fun ways! Compatible with Chromebook
  • MiniMakers (Gr 1-2) Experienced: apply more elaborate concepts in coding, robotics & explore the 3D design world of Minecraft (day 4 and 5). MAC or PC required. Chromebooks are not compatible

Red Week or Blue Week: We have two different weeks of content for this camp – Red Week and Blue Week. For kids who have taken one camp (e.g. Red Week) and then take another (e.g. Blue Week), they will get to use the software platforms they have become familiar with to take on a whole host of different projects. The camps can be taken in any order.
