Computer Camps Held at MIT

Welcome to our 16th season hosting summer technology programs at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (home of Tim the Beaver)! In 1999, our family company set out to reinvent "camp" for the 21st century. Today, we’re #1 in summer tech education, with 150+ locations nationwide and an expansive lineup of courses in coding, game design, app development, web design, film, photography, and more.

At our MIT camps, not far from the Charles River, kids and teens build valuable STEM skills in an inspiring, collegiate setting. Students experience personalized learning with a maximum of 8 students per instructor and use the best brand name products from industry leaders like Adobe, Apple, Autodesk, Google, and Microsoft. Kick-start your dream job and gain a competitive edge for college!


NEARLY SOLD OUT: Due to extremely high demand at MIT, most courses are sold out. If the course you want is sold out (see course grid below), please check real-time availability at nearby locations: Harvard, Bentley, Olin College of Engineering, or any of our other Massachusetts locations.

iD Tech Camps Program Details

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 MIT

Experience the ideal balance of STEM learning and summer fun at our Cambridge summer camps held at MIT. Our popular summer day camps are among a handful of elite summer camps in Cambridge, MA. We strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential cutting-edge technology education to foster STEM skill development (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Our summer camps are located about 4.3 Miles southwest of the Boston Logan International Airport with convenient access to the "T" subway. Our computer camp at MIT is a day camp only. For the ultimate overnight computer camp experience, please check out our other Massachusetts summer camps.

Located in the heart of Cambridge along the Charles River Basin with views of Boston, MIT's campus of modern and historic buildings stretches more than 153 acres. Come check out our summer camps held at MIT!
