Join us in KCD’s FabLab and learn by doing in camps designed to employ the latest DIY fabrication tools (3D printers, laser cutter, and a CNC mill- as well as good old fashioned hand tools) in order create projects embracing the fundamentals of design, iteration, computer programming, electronics, engineering, and art.

Please plan to drop off between 8:40 and 8:55am in the rear of the school at our football stadium and pick up at 12pm at the same location. The first part of the day at camp will feature skills and drills for offense and defense and we will play games and have skills competitions at the end of the camp. The non contact drills and skills will be taught by our Varsity Football staff and will be focused on having fun and learning the basics of the great game of football. All campers will learn to throw and catch properly, while working on their agility in a variety of ways. Any and all of you are welcome to come out to watch all or part of the camp and I really look forward to meeting those of you that I do not know yet in person.
