Maker Camp is looking for a dynamic host for our daily talk show that connects top makers with campers all over the world to build the best summer ever.

We’re looking for you. You’re a maker. You may hack your appliances. You may have Arduinos tucked in your t-shirts. You wear the title “Geek” with honor. You might look at Tesla coils and think, I could do that.

And when you watch Mythbusters, Cosmos, and, you wonder, “How do I get a show like that?”

Last year, campers were taken behind the scenes at Pixar, NASA, and Google. They interacted with Imogen Heap about her musical gloves, master prop-maker Shawn Thorsson, and RobotGrrl with all her latest bots. They made banana pianos, giant spin art, and full-body stop-motion animations.



If you want to take your love of making to the next level, Maker Camp wants you to host our daily hangouts. We’ve got a great production team to make you look your best and help you become the next YouTube superstar.
