Co-Ed | Weeklong | Programming, Game Design, Apps, Robotics, Web Design, Film, Photography, and More
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. Course offerings vary by site. View courses at this location. Beginner or advanced, you'll get inspired by energetic, tech-savvy instructors. Do something big this summer!
About the University
This is our 10th season hosting summer camps in the Baltimore area at our Towson 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 Towson University summer day camps and overnight camps are among a handful of elite summer camps located in the Baltimore, MD area.
We are excited to be hosting our academic camps for teens and kids at Towson University. Located in suburban Towson, eight miles north of Baltimore, the beautifully landscaped, 328-acre setting offers a pleasant environment for our summer computer camps. TU is the second-largest public university in Maryland and is a smoke-free campus. TU is also recognized among the nation's best regional public universities, offering more than 100 bachelor, master, and doctoral degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences, and applied professional fields.
Transportation to and from our TU summer day camps and overnight camps is fast and easy. Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI), located about 45 minutes south of Towson, handles air traffic from all major carriers. Train service is available via Amtrak in and out of Baltimore's Penn Station, 20 minutes south of campus. TU also runs its own on-campus shuttle system, operating free of charge for students' convenience. Come and check out our Maryland summer camps!
