ABOUT VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY COMPUTER CAMPS
This is our 8th season hosting Nashville, TN summer camps at our Vanderbilt 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 Vanderbilt University summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.
We have chosen to host our summer academic computer camps for kids and teens at Vanderbilt University because it is one of America’s top 20 universities. The campus is something of a world unto itself, boasting modern classrooms, labs, residence halls, coffee shops, bookstores, facilities for concerts, plays, lectures, films, sports and recreation and more. With day camp and overnight camp options, this elite computer camp in Tennessee is an amazing summer program!
Vanderbilt is a renowned private research university. iD Tech Camps students live and move comfortably among ancient magnolias, sweeping lawns, and buildings that balance Victorian dignity with high-tech elegance.
