“He’s there this week even though I paid for him to go to another camp. He just loved it so much, I had to let him go.”
A strong mentor and a nurturing community are what can turn a hobby into a lifelong passion. An athlete gets to try out for a team and work with a coach. An actor gets to join an ensemble and learn from a director. Young people interested in technology don’t always get those same opportunities, but we’re changing that every day.
SummerTech is a place where you can find your people, and learn from teachers and counselors who have walked in your shoes. We like that so many of our students grow into great artists and coders, but we’re truly proud of how many alumni tell us we helped them find their confidence, their inner leader, and their voice.
“At SummerTech she had a drive to complete something… at school she rarely does.”
A Day at SummerTech
Just what does a typical day at SummerTech look like? Here’s our Monday-Thursday daily schedule.
|8 am:||Lab Opens/Early Drop Off – Kids run in! – Time to hang with friends, code, animate, design, model, play games, succeed in a wacky counselor challenge (our famous SummerTech Quests!), have fun inside or out.|
|9–11:30 am:||1st and 2nd Classes – Kids pursue their chosen courses with direct support from our staff (who were all campers).|
|12:00 pm:||Lunch – At the college cafeteria.|
|12:30 pm:||3rd Class – Kids pursue their chosen courses with direct support from their favorite counselors.|
|2 pm:||Electives – Anything and everything. These are counselor envisioned and counselor-camper executed creative, sporty and sometimes wacky activities where everyone has fun. Counselors create new ones each week, so we enjoy whatever young minds come up with. Old favorites are offered as well. Examples include everything from ‘Introduction to Code’ to ‘Improvisational Comedy.’|
|3-5 pm:||Outdoor Recreation – Social and physically active time.|
|5:15 pm:||Dinner – At the college cafeteria.|

|10:00 pm:||Overnight Campers go to the dorms. lights out….flashlights on…|

SummerTech has the most comprehensive courses out there, and because we teach at a 3:1 ratio we can personalize the experience to you. No boxed curriculum, no lectures halls, SummerTech offers personalized project based instruction.
Gaming, Events, More
During free time campers can go toe to toe in their favorite video games, play a board game, or just relax. Every night, staff members host special events, from gaming tournaments, to Ultimate Frisbee to tie-dying. There’s always something fun to do at SummerTech.
“Her counselors aren’t only teaching, they get her. They respond to who she is and how she works.“
