Introducing Maker Camp on Google+
Now every teen can experience summer camp because it’s online and it’s free! Maker Camp is a virtual summer camp on Google+, teaching campers how to make 30 awesome projects in 30 days.

How it Works
Maker Camp is a virtual summer camp for teens, with a focus on creating, building, and DIY-ing. It’s free and open to all, and runs from July 16th through August 24th.

Each weekday morning, a new project will be introduced by an expert camp counselor who will walk campers through the steps to build the project. Materials lists will be posted in advance so campers have time to find supplies for the next day’s project.

Each afternoon, campers can join the camp counselor in a Hangout on Google+ to talk about the project and look at photos campers have submitted.

And tune in every Friday, when we’ll be taking campers on epic “field trips” via a G+ Hangout!

Mark your calendar for Maker Camp on Google+ today! Camp starts July 16th!

How to Join In
Maker Camp is all about interactivity and participation! Be ready for the first day of Maker Camp by building your profile on G+ today and adding MAKE to your circles. Once you’re on G+, you can interact with friends and other campers and follow along with Maker Camp’s daily projects. Then show off your creations with photos and videos!
