  • “Wow: what can't I say about the experience? Honestly I would not be where I am today if it were not for camp. It not only jump-started my creativity after having been laid off from my very first job, but it changed the course of my career. I gained valuable experience, learned a ton about designing and coding for web, found my passion for putting my skills towards charitable causes, met a lot of fantastic people that I still consider my friends, and ended up moving to Chicago because of it. I will always be grateful for the wonderful experience.”

Now for the fun part: tell us about yourself.

Why do you want to attend? What do you want to learn? What makes you…you?

We also want to see some of your work and a short video – nothing too fancy. Just say hi. Let us know you’re (for) real.

Applications are due May 8 along with a $250 deposit (we’ll refund it if you’re not accepted).

Fee + Scholarhips

The fee to attend is $1250. This covers everything you could possibly need (housing, food, transportation) for 10 days.

We do offer two scholarships to campers who wouldn’t be able to attend¬†otherwise. If you really want one, make sure to¬†tell us why* in your application.
*Student loans don’t count – we’ve all got ’em!
