When & Where
Camp ShopBots are free, 1-day events intended to inspire all levels of ShopBot users. Organized by ShopBot Tools, Inc., Camps are hosted by makerspaces, universities and colleges, personal shops and businesses. Their aim is to teach new techniques and tips, encourage networking and camaraderie, and promote knowledge sharing within the ShopBot CNC community. This is done through topic-based presentations, Q&As, show and tell sessions, guest speakers and more.
Camps are free to attend, and occur around the country usually in January-May and September-December.
