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 St. Edward's University
At our Austin, TX summer camps held at St. Edward's University, we strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development. Our popular St. Edward's University summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.
We have chosen St. Edward's University to host our summer computer camps and teen camps because of the school's long-standing position as one of the top liberal arts institutions in the country. A private Roman Catholic university, St. Edward's is located just south of Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas and only 15 minutes away from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. This convenient St. Edward's program is one of our multiple summer camps in Texas, and offers both day camp and overnight camp options. St. Edward's is located on a hill overlooking the entire city, making it a beautiful summer camp location.
