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. Kids camps and teen camps encompass courses in programming with Java, C++, Python, Scratch, and more, app development with iPhone and Android, Minecraft, modding, FPS and RPG game design, robotics engineering with VEX and LEGO, 3D modeling & animation, filmmaking, photography, and web design.

About University of Miami

At our Miami summer camps held at the University of Miami, 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 Miami summer day camps and overnight camps are located in Coral Gables, FL.

We have chosen the University of Miami to host our summer kids' computer camps, academic camps and teen camps in Florida because it is the largest, most comprehensive private research community in the United States. The University of Miami's main campus is located on 260 acres in the City of Coral Gables, a suburb just south of Miami. Coral Gables is also known as the City Beautiful, and boasts a vibrant business and cultural community set in a tropical, Mediterranean environment. Campus buildings are structured around lagoons and streams.

Miami International Airport is conveniently located just 10 miles north of Coral Gables, and many students choose the Overnight Camp option at this summer camp in Miami. With its well-earned reputation for academic excellence, the University of Miami is truly the perfect day camp and overnight camp location.

The entire camp has shown me a new light in computers, and will stay with me for a long time."
