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.

Creative Characters Camp

Creative Characters Camp was an official event on the Scratch Website, and the third collaboration event on Scratch, after Collab Challenge and Collab Camp. The goal was for Scratchers to create sprites for other Scratchers to use in their projects. The objective of the camp was to get Scratchers to collaborate and create reusable sprites for others. The camp ran from July 7, 2014 through July 28, 2014. On July 13, 2015, a sequel to this camp was launched, named the Mix and Match Camp.

Participants created at least three sprites with at least three costumes each. Each sprite also included at least a single script. Participants could work on their own, or in a collaboration.

Once the project with sprites is created, it was added to the Camp Cabin studio. From there, other users provided feedback for improving each entry.

During the final stage of the competition, participants pasted a link to their project in the Final Projects studio and one of the camp counselors added it.

After the event, the Scratch Team opened up a Scratch Design Studio and asked the community to create projects using sprites from the Creative Characters projects.

The camp included four counselors who assisted users. They are:

  • -PRO-
  • CrazyNimbus
  • lauraisawsome
  • venomous-squirrel

Scratch Mentors and members of the Scratch Team also helped with the camp.

During the first week of camp, Scratchers made the sprites, which include included a key, and a scientist. Participants also needed to create a backdrop that depicts a festival, though they did not have to make all three. In the second week, camp participants had to choose sprites, and backdrops by other Scratchers, and create a new project of any type using them. Participants also had to incorporate a special
