ABOUT UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN COMPUTER CAMPS
This is our 12th season hosting Ann Arbor, MI summer camps at our University of Michigan 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 University of Michigan summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.
We have chosen the University of Michigan campus to host our academic summer camps for kids and teens because it is one of only two public institutions consistently ranked among the nation’s top ten universities. The University of Michigan boasts one of the largest health care complexes in the world, the top university library system in the country, and some of the best computer access for students and faculty. The University of Michigan was founded in 1817 as one of the first public universities in the nation. The campus, made up of modern and historic buildings, is rich with culture and features many museums. The University is consistently ranked among the top 10 universities in the nation according to the U.S. News & World Report.
Detroit Metropolitan International Airport is located 20 miles east of the University of Michigan, approximately a 35 minute drive away from campus, making it the perfect summer camp location. Come check out our summer camps in Michigan, including our Michigan youth camps and camps for teens in Michigan.
