ABOUT TOWSON UNIVERSITY COMPUTER CAMPS
This is our 8th season hosting summer camps in the Baltimore area at our Towson University location. 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 Towson University summer day camps and overnight camps are among a handful of elite summer camps located in the Baltimore, MD area.
We are excited to be hosting our academic camps for teens and kids at Towson University. Located in suburban Towson, eight miles north of Baltimore, the beautifully landscaped, 328-acre setting offers a pleasant environment for our summer computer camps.

Towson is also recognized among the nation’s best regional public universities, offering more than 100 bachelor, master, and doctoral degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences, and applied professional fields.
