ABOUT UNC-CHAPEL HILL
This is our 12th season hosting summer camps in North Carolina at our UNC Chapel Hill 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 UNC Chapel Hill summer day camps and overnight camps are located in the Raleigh-Durham area of NC.
We have chosen the UNC Chapel Hill campus to host our academic summer camps because this school, the nation’s first public university, is consistently ranked among the nation’s very best public schools.
