Our summer computer camps for kids, pre-teens, and teens are segmented by course and age. Teens will study, socialize and eat with other teens, but may be in the vicinity of younger students during lab time. Yes, we’re a tech camp, but we do not sit in front of digital devices all day. We provide a well-balanced, fun summer camp experience that is age-appropriate for kids, pre-teens, and teens. Imagine a small group learning environment where the curriculum is tailored to you. A place where you build critical 21st century STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills in intimate clusters of just 8 students maximum per instructor, and collaborate with new friends.
You’ll gain confidence, explore a unique college campus, and get a taste of the collegiate experience. This isn’t just camp. It’s a portal to a fulfilling future, in college and beyond.

About Wesleyan University
At our Middletown, CT summer camps at our Wesleyan 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 Wesleyan University summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.
The Wesleyan campus is a 360-acre park-like setting and includes the famous High Street, once described by Charles Dickens as "the handsomest street in America." Wesleyan is home to many landmarks and notable buildings. Our Connecticut summer camps at Wesleyan encompass the University's Davison Art Center, which is a designated U.S. National Historic Landmark. The Art Center is known for its large collection including 18,000 prints, 6,000 photographs, several hundred drawings, and a small number of paintings. Also, the Center for Humanities is one of the oldest humanities institutes in the nation, established at Wesleyan in 1959 as a place for visiting humanities scholars to pursue research. We invite you to come see it for yourself!
