hub and spoke camps

Painting Murals & More

Dates: June 7-11
Time: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ages: 8-12
Cost: $285

Grab your brushes for a larger-than-life art experience. Campers will be working together to plan and paint a mural that will be displayed at Hub & Spoke. Painting on panels will allow the mural to be worked on both indoors and outdoors so campers can get inspiration from nature as well as other artists.

Robotics Camp

Dates: June 14-18
Time: 9 a.m. to noon
Ages: 8-12
Cost: $200

Campers will be grouped with others of a similar age and be given access to robotics materials to build robots and to develop an understanding of STEM. High school students with robotics experience will work with the campers to inspire, spark interest, and teach the principals of robotics to them. A tentative schedule is as follows:

  • Basic building techniques
  • Movement and power in a robot
  • Programming and using sensors on a robot
  • Mechanisms for better robots
  • Robot competition

Demonstration of larger robots will be included. This is an ideal, hands-on camp for students who show an interest in technology and/or are very inquisitive and curious on how technology works. Campers with previous robotics experience will be grouped together and given a chance to learn at an accelerated rate. The camp will utilize Vex IQ materials which are plastic, quick-connect parts and the same robotics materials used in many of the Fishers area schools for clubs and instruction. The only thing a camper needs to bring is a positive attitude and the willingness to work with others.

Woodland Wonderland

Dates: June 21-25
Time: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ages: 8-12
Cost: $285

This week is all about building and creating with found and recycled materials. Campers will explore the outdoors to find unique things along the Nickel Plate Trail as well as donated items from Hub & Spoke. Think outside the box using materials ranging from cardboard and fabric to sticks and leaves to create woodland themed projects.

Exploring Fiber Arts

Dates: July 12-16
Time: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ages: 8-12
Cost: $285

Knots, string, yarn, and more will be the materials explored this week. Campers will create using traditional and non-traditional methods and materials as they dive into the world of fiber arts. From weaving to string art, campers will use nature for inspiration and incorporated it into their creations.

Photography Basics

Dates: July 19-23
Time: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ages: 12-14
Cost: $285

All you need for this camp is your phone! Learn how to take expert pictures on your phone and use photo editing apps and editing programs like Photoshop. Campers will explore both indoor and outdoor photography at Hub & Spoke and on the Nickel Plate Trail and by the end of the week build a portfolio of their work.
