What is Maker Camp?

It is a FREE summer camp for building, tinkering, and exploring where you can participate in-person (at the Sevier County 4-H office in Richfield) or online through Google+. To learn more about what we will be doing this summer, check out this list of Maker projects.

How do I participate?

If you choose to participate in person, you can join us each week at the 4-H Extension site (
250 N. Main, Richfield, UT 84701). From the week of July 7th to the week of August 15th, we will be working on projects every Tuesday from 10am to 3pm. If you can attend the whole day from 10am to 3pm, great; please bring your own lunch. If you cannot attend for the whole time, come and leave as you are available. We will be there on Tuesday's from 10am to 3pm (EXCEPT for the week of the fair).

If you choose to come to the Extension office to participate, we will have materials waiting for you to create your Maker projects. If you cannot attend every single week, no worries. We welcome you to participate for one day or for as many meetings as you can attend.

If you choose to participate at home, you will need to create a Google+ profile and follow MAKE to attend Maker Camp. If you’re under 13, you can attend Maker Camp on Google+ with your parent, using his or her Google+ profile. Maker Camp will be available every day from July 7th to August 15th.

As for materials, many of the materials you need for the projects are likely already available in your home. However, any materials you need to buy ahead of time are inexpensive and easily attainable at grocery, hardware, or electronics stores. If you choose this option, please upload pictures to the MAKE page, Maker Camp community page, and/or upload to instagram #sevier4hutah.

What about Fair week?
During fair week, we will be hosting maker camp at the county fair, so if you would like to participate that week, please join us at our 4-H booth on Thursday, August 7th from 12pm to 4pm to continue Maker Camp. After that week, we will continue to meet at the 4-H Extension office location Tuesday's from 10am to 3pm.

How do I sign up for Google+?
If you choose to participate in Maker Camp in-person, you do not have to join Google+. We have a Google+ account under the name SevierUT FourH. Feel free to add us to your circles and follow us. Since we already have a Google+ account, if you show up in person, we can participate together using our Google+ account.

If you choose to participate online, you can create a Google+ account by following these directions. After you've created one, simply add MAKE to your circles and join the Maker Camp community to get started. During the weeks of Maker Camp, they will post everything you need to know to participate.

Do I need to be enrolled in 4-H to participate?
Yes. If you are not yet enrolled, please go to to enroll. If you are already enrolled, you are ready to start creating at Maker Camp.

Remember, please fill out this form to let us know if you will be participating.

See you at Maker Camp!
