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 Adelphi University

This is our 7th season hosting Garden City summer camps at our Adelphi 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 Adelphi University summer day camps are located on Long Island.

We have chosen Adelphi University to host our summer computer camps and teen camps on Long Island because it is recognized by many as one of the Northeast's best universities. Adelphi has recently completed construction of new academic facilities and expansion of existing buildings, enhancing the look and feel of the prestigious campus.

Adelphi University's roots reach back to 1863 with the founding of the Adelphi Academy, a private preparatory school in Brooklyn, New York. Located 45 minutes from New York City, Adelphi is situated on a beautiful 75-acre campus in historic Garden City, New York. Located in Nassau County, New York, Adelphi University is a convenient twenty minutes away from both JFK International and LaGuardia airports, making it the perfect NY summer camp location. Come check out our Long Island summer camp!
