Each time they take a camp program they have new experiences with the topics covered and can work on more and more advanced projects as their skill levels increase.

Our camps are designed for kids that are highly motivated to learn about technology – about 65% to 75% of the day take place in a classroom. The day is broken up into seven periods. Many of our camp partners offer, an optional, extended AM and PM program so that you can drop off and pick up your camper at a convenient time for you.

Classroom & Hands-On Computer Lab (4 periods)

More then 65% of the day will be spent indoors, working in our technology labs. During the day, our campers are provided with four AM and PM instruction and lab periods. Campers work with subject matter experts and in small teams to build their technology and gaming projects.

Outdoor Activities (1 period – before or after Lunch)

Weather permitting, everyday our campers will spend time outdoors and play games such as capture the flag, kickball, ‘Nurf War’, and compete in water fights.

Lunch and Free Breaks (2 periods)

We will take a few breaks during the camp day – during this free time campers can have a snack and/or play in a video or board game tournament.
