ABOUT SANTA CLARA UNIVERSITY COMPUTER CAMPS
This is our 16th season hosting summer camps at our Santa Clara University location in Silicon Valley, 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 SCU summer camps are among a handful of elite CA summer camps in the South Bay accredited by the American Camp Association.
We have chosen Santa Clara University to host our summer kids computer camps and teen camps in the South Bay because of SCU’s beauty, outstanding reputation and commitment to rigorous curriculum in the arts, sciences, business and engineering.
Founded in 1851, Santa Clara University is California’s oldest institution of higher learning. The campus lies on “The Alameda,” a famous stretch of road that connected Northern California to Southern California, and beyond. SCU was one of the very first iD Tech Camps locations, hosting our Santa Clara, CA computer camps as early as 1999. This SCU Silicon Valley computer camp is a campus oasis in the midst of the bustling South Bay, boasting Spanish-style architecture and beautifully sculpted rose gardens and lawns. Convenient to Downtown San Jose, Santa Clara and the rest of the Silicon Valley area, SCU is the perfect summer day camp location.
If you are considering flying in to this location, the San Jose International airport is just minutes away. Also, there is a Cal Train stop directly across the street from the university. Come check out our summer camps!
