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 New York University

This is our 8th season hosting our summer camps held at New York University. 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 popular NYU summer day camps are among a handful of elite summer camps in New York City.

Founded in 1831, New York University is the largest private university in the United States, occupying five major centers in Manhattan. The center of NYU is its Washington Square campus in the heart of Greenwich Village.

Our computer camps at New York University give students the opportunity to enroll in a fun, challenging program while enjoying a culturally rich, collegiate atmosphere. NYU is nestled in one of the city's most creative and energetic communities - the Village. It is a historic neighborhood that has attracted generations of writers, musicians, artists and intellectuals. Our summer camp is held in a building that overlooks Washington Square. Beyond the Village, New York City becomes an extension of the University's campus. The central location of New York University makes it an excellent option for a day camp in NY area.
