Spark Your Child’s Curiosity and Imagination This Summer
Cyber Garage is a Makerspace and Tech wonderland filled with advanced prototyping and woodworking machines, laser cutting, 3D printers, science, digital art, engineering, game design, virtual reality, robotics, the latest and greatest in technology and much more! With the guidance of our knowledgeable and caring teachers, your kids will be fully engaged in projects that combine technology, science and hands-on learning with playful creativity — that will set the foundation for a lifetime love of learning.
A Healthy Balance of Mind/Body/Social
At Cyber Garage, we don’t believe that kids should be hovering over a computer all day long! Our camps provide a much-needed balance of learning, building and playing with friends outdoors. At Cyber Garage, kids can explore their creativity, meet, socialize and most importantly, have FUN! Our weekly Maker camps will inspire a new generation of coders, builders, designers, artists, and engineers with hands-on building, real world and virtual learning games and activities combined with plenty of memorable, outdoor fun — like launching rockets, driving hovercrafts or racing custom built cars and robots.
Why Cyber Garage Summer Camps?
We are unlike the other Summer Camps that show up for only 6 weeks a year and pack in kids at huge numbers. Cyber Garage is Marin County’s premiere Makerspace and Tech Lab with the biggest investment in technology and talented, dedicated teachers that are here year-round.

Explore More – Learn More
Campers will learn a wide array of design and engineering techniques across a broad range of platforms and design tools. Other camps offer a mixed bag with little to no equipment, supplies and basic activities led by seasonal staff. Or they focus on coding, or one technology like 3D printing where are kids are stuck in a classroom on a computer most of the day. But at Cyber Garage, we offer the full 360 degree Maker Experience. Our summer camp curriculum integrates building, making, coding, science, art and design into all facets of each day — so our camps offer your child the best opportunity to explore, create, grow and learn!
Blast Off For Summer Fun!
Minecraft and Robotics Adventures Week
Kids will love creating, building and exploring both online and in the real world as they venture into our amazing world of Minecraft and Robotics.
