What We Do

Miami Maker Kids Summer Camp

Are you looking for an innovative, engaging, creative experience for your children this summer?

We are not your traditional summer camp: No sports drills, classroom academics, or instructional swim periods. 

We have a different idea for how a kid can spend the summer.

Miami Maker Kids is a boutique summer camp with limited enrollment, high interest projects, child-driven activities, and lots of individualized attention. 

 

What We Believe 

Our Maker philosophy is grounded in the work of educational theorists like John DeweyJean PiagetMaria MontessoriHoward GardnerMitch Resnick, and Alfie Kohn. More important, our decades of experience in formal and informal educational settings informs all of our work with children.

Miami Maker Kids, Inc. is the culmination of my 30-year career as a teacher, tutor, and mentor. Currently a Florida-certified elementary and middle school teacher, I have taught math, science, and engineering to students in independent schools from Boston to Brazil to San Francisco to Miami. I figured out long ago that the child who struggles within the box of a more traditional education wants to learn, and will learn, if given the key to unlock the box. The Maker Movement is the most innovative key to unlock that box.

Rafael

As a student at my American high school in Brazil, I often found classroom lessons unappealing or downright boring. Beyond the classroom, I thrived in those settings where I could choose what to study and how to learn. Miami Maker Kids will experience the same flexible learning model that I have cultivated in my own life.I am passionate about sharing my knowledge, experiences, and outlook with a new generation of students.
