Welcome to Camp ADAT – Explore, Design, Build

A community where anything is possible!
“What ifs” become “how tos.”
Dreamers become doers.
And big thinkers change the world.

Camp Adat is a unique, values centered, design thinking summer camp, where we nurture empathy, encourage ideas, and let kids go wild. Through the steps of design thinking (understanding a problem, brainstorming solutions, testing and refining), our campers are encouraged to create, craft, tinker, DIY, hack, code, learn, and quite possibly make impactful change. Plus, they will have so much fun they will never want to go home.
