The sidebar shown on the Front Page during Collab Camp 2012.

Collab Camp was the second collaboration event on the Scratch Website (after the Collab Challenge).


The challenge for the 2011 Collab Camp was to make an interactive story. The Collab groups had to have a project draft submitted by August 15 and a final draft submitted by September 1. The finished projects can be found here.


On August 13, there was a meetup at the MIT Media Lab for Scratchers participating in Collab Camp.

Join us at the MIT Media Lab for a Collab Camp Meetup. At this free meetup, open to all Scratchers and parents participating in the Collab Camp, you can:
  • Meet and connect with other Collab Campers
  • Share your collab's latest Camp project and get feedback
  • Work together on new ideas for your project

The theme for the 2012 Collab Camp was Music Mashups, announced on February 8, 2012. The collab groups had to share their initial drafts by March 11, and the final version March 31. The finished projects can be found here.
