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 Michigan

Experience the ideal balance of STEM learning and summer fun at our Ann Arbor, MI summer camps held at the University of Michigan. 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 Michigan summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.

We have chosen the University of Michigan campus to host our academic summer camps for kids and teens because it is one of only two public institutions consistently ranked among the nation's top ten universities. The University of Michigan boasts one of the largest health care complexes in the world, the top university library system in the country, and some of the best computer access for students and faculty. The University of Michigan was founded in 1817 as one of the first public universities in the nation. The campus, made up of modern and historic buildings, is rich with culture and features many museums. The University is consistently ranked among the top 10 universities in the nation according to the U.S. News & World Report.

Detroit Metropolitan International Airport is located 20 miles east of the University of Michigan, approximately a 35 minute drive away from campus, making it the perfect summer camp location.
