Our summer computer camps for kids, pre-teens, and teens are segmented by course and age.

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.
