Calling all kids who have great imaginations, enjoy figuring out how things work or simply love technology! Code, Create & Animate gives you the tools you need to explore coding and robotics, regardless of your skill level!

Campers will learn basic coding for our resident robots and learn how to code an interactive story or create a game using SCRATCH!

This summer, campers will meet the Putnam's NEW “cobot” (collaborative robot), Baxter, and learn what it takes to train him. See what this 306-pound machine is capable of with Baxter's 8.5-foot arm span, and see emotions expressed with his animated eyes. 


Despite the abundance of summer programming options, students still return to school feeling sluggish and suffering from what teachers call the "summer slide." The Putnam helps students avoid this decline in skills with summer camps that strike a winning balance of fun, education and care.

Before- and after-care is available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. only for full-day weeklong camps for an additional charge ($5 before; $5 after; or $10 per day).
