About University of Virginia
At our Charlottesville summer camps held at the University of Virginia, 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 summer day camps and overnight camps held at UVA allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting.
We have chosen the University of Virginia to host our summer computer camps because of its convenient Charlottesville location and beautiful college campus. Charlottesville-Albemarle Airport is only about 20 minutes from UVA, while Richmond International Airport is an hour and a half drive away. Dulles International Airport is about two hours from campus.

"This camp lit up the imagination of my son. He could not wait to get to camp every morning. Thank you for a wonderful week.

You all did a fantastic job."- Kristin B., Parent, UVA
