It's like summer camp for makers: Maker Land

People are always talking about how folks from Oregon love the outdoors. They’re also always talking about how folks around here love to make things, from hobbyist pursuits to full blown businesses. And there was a time when we had more camps per capita than any tech community. Camp camp campy camp. So why not combine all of those things? That’s exactly what Max Ogden is doing with Maker Land.

Camp out in a beautiful meadow on the Oregon coast and do things like learn how to solder LEDs in a barn or make a digeridoo out of driftwood.

Maker land is a unique blend of expert-led workshops and self-directed, unstructured learning. Some content is scheduled, but the main area is reserved for general use/making/hacking.

The event takes place the weekend of August 19, 2016. Cost of tickets is $100 for adults and $75 for children 12 and under. Tickets cover the event and four meals.
