ABOUT UC IRVINE COMPUTER CAMPS
This is our 16th season hosting summer camps at our UC Irvine location in the Orange County area, CA. We strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Our popular UC Irvine summer day camps and overnight camps are among a handful of elite CA summer camps in the Orange County area accredited by the American Camp Association.
We have chosen UC Irvine to host our kids summer camps and teen camps in Los Angeles and Southern CA because UCI offers iD students an excellent opportunity for a rich and rewarding summer collegiate experience. The gorgeous UCI campus has become an arboretum of trees and lush landscaping from around the world, forming a park-like setting. The beautiful campus is ideal for an intense week of indoor tech-study and outdoor California fun in the sun, making it the perfect day camp and overnight camp location!
The University of California at Irvine is ranked among the top 50 universities nationally, and ranks tenth among all public universities. Originally a quiet and sunny vacation getaway for Los Angeles residents, Irvine has developed into a booming metropolis with nearby Newport Beach and the presence of a dynamic business community.
