3D Printing Camp & Modeling

2017 3D Printing Camps in Philadelphia PA, Main Line PA, Malvern PA, Lower Gwynedd PA, Bucks County PA, Plymouth Meeting PA, Cherry Hill NJ, Princeton NJ, Montclair NJ, NYC Manhattan, Long Island NY, Washington DC, Towson MD, Washington DC & St. Louis, MO!


(Ages 8 to 12) 

Join us to be on the FOREFRONT of one of technology’s fastest growing trends… 3D Printing, Modeling & Modding!

With a technology that allows us to create and print prototypes wherever a 3D Printer can be plugged in, this industry will change the world we live in.

Using Autodesk 123D Design and cutting-edge 3D printers, our campers have the opportunity to 3D model prototypes, mod existing designs, and print them!

At 3D Printing Camp, campers learn about scalability, and how designs can be easily uploaded and printed for mass consumption.  With this in mind, we ask campers to design one main project and other, smaller projects.  The main project challenges campers to invent or create a 3D Design Model of a printable tool or item that can improve the lives of many.  Campers will print this project.  We ask our campers to be creative thinkers, inventors, and game changers, and can’t wait to see all of the amazing projects this summer!  Some project ideas may include ones’ own variation of a Spork, Canteen, Trail Marker, Tweezers, Cell Phone Case, Mini Survival Kit Case, or something completely new!  

Campers can also transform models made out of clay to 3D printed versions using our panoramic photo-technology and 3D Printing software!

Campers also learn about the 3D Printer itself, and how to operate, clean, and care for the machine.

A Friday Showcase will take place at 2:45pm and campers will present their projects and explain how each can change the world!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Much More than just Printing:  We are not just printing objects… we are conceptualizing, designing, customizing, modding, and optimizing!

Make An Impact:  Any design for 3D Printing could go viral and make a difference to millions of people one day!

Stay at The Forefront:  3D Printing is a blue ocean of untapped opportunities, and you will jump right in!

Have a Blast Inventing:  When creating 3D models and printing prototypes, you are inventing!  What’s more fun than doing it with a group of friends at camp!

Showcase & Take Home:  Our Friday showcase is your time to shine – show off your prototype, discuss its benefits to society, and keep it, it’s yours!

Please note:  Campers 3D model multiple projects each week, and take home at least one printed project (and a file with all of their designs.)  Please have your child bring a USB to camp on Friday to copy all project files.

Footwear:  Closed-toe shoes/sneakers are required.

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt and leave with a printed project and design files!

Please Note:  The projects created by campers at 3D Printing Camp get to take them home and assume ownership of each project.

For Clay Models, the 3d photo process is very precise and printed models may not be exact representations.

Warning for Projects: Projects created by campers at 3D Printing Camp may be small in size, and may therefore pose a risk of choking or other harm.  This projects must be keep out of the reach of small children or anyone who has the tendency to put inedible objects in their mouth.  All projects are created for the use of our campers ages 7 & up.

*For campers interested in 3D Printing Camp with Modeling, we also recommend our Computer Programming Camp with Python, Computer Programming Camp with Java, 3D Minecraft™ Camp – Innovation & Design, Graphic Design Camp, Filmmaking Camp, Robotics Camp, Robotics Camp with Tetrix, and TECH R3VOLUTION™.
