This thesis explores how we can design learning environments to support broad participation in creative collaboration-that is, the process of working together on the construction of an artifact. I describe and analyze the design and implementation of Collab Camp, a learning environment that supports creative collaboration among members in the Scratch online community. The design of Collab Camp is based on four intersecting goals: encourage collaboration, support making, connect to interests, and cultivate community. I use a designed-based learning approach to iteratively design, implement, and evaluate this learning environment. I conclude by reflecting on the implementations and analyses to suggest ways in which we can support everyone in making together.
