Enjoy Gaming, Events and More
Campers always have something exciting to do at SummerTech. They can play games or relax during free time in the afternoon and evening. Staff members host special events every night to make each day a new adventure for our campers. These get-togethers have something for everyone, such as gaming tournaments and tie-dying.
“Her counselors aren’t only teaching, they get her. They respond to who she is and how she works.“
Find Your People and Passion
We believe that mentorship and community can transform a favorite hobby into a passion for life. Our team gives young people interested in technology a space where they can explore what they love with like-minded peers. Learn how to have fun with tech from former campers who understand you.
