Summer Mini-Camps

Summer Mini-Camps are 1-day tech camp experiences packed full of fun! Mini-camps encompass a full camp day (9am - 2pm) and are a great way to get your camper exposure to technology without the time commitment of our 1-week or 2-week camp offerings.

Our 2018 Mini-Camp Offerings are as below. Once you decide on the mini-camp that works best for you, please go directly to the Mini-Camps Payment Portal to reserve your camper's spot.
