In this camp, we will use the Raspberry Pi. You have two options on how to purchase the kit:
If you purchase the kit through us:
You will pay $80, and will receive the Vilros Raspberry Pi 3 Complete Starter Kit. If you purchase the kit through us, you will receive it on the first day of camp, and you can take it home with you at the end of the week.
If you buy the kit on your own:
You will need to purchase the Vilros Raspberry Pi 3 Complete Starter Kit and have it with you when you arrive for camp. We recommend purchasing the kit through Amazon. We leave this option especially open for those who already own the kit or may be able to borrow it from another source. If you have any questions about the kit, please contact us.
A more detailed list of supplies needed for your camp program will be emailed to you three weeks before camp begins.
