Your favorite summer, every summer.
SummerTech is more than just a STEM camp— it’s a community of learners and leaders growing their skills in an inclusive, confidence building environment. Powered by a passionate staff comprised of former campers, from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, we’ll make this summer your best yet.
Have fun, learn something!
An athlete has a team and a coach. An actor has an ensemble and a director. If you’re a youth interested in technology, you probably don’t have that social group, skilled leader or sense of belonging to a team. SummerTech is a world of like-minded peers sharing interests and passions – not to mention mentorship and guidance from counselors who walked in your shoes. In our environment, campers find their people, their voice, and become leaders. They fit in, find their wings, and grow into confident, independent people.
“I was blown away! …Wish I had found SummerTech sooner. She’s never been so happy!”
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).|

“We pulled her out of the classic sleepaway camp and sent her back to SummerTech. She just loves it so much.”
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 teachers aren’t only teaching, they get her. They respond to who she is and how she works.“
SummerTech is located on the beautiful campuses of SUNY Purchase in Harrison NY, and Regis College in Weston MA.
“Every time I see the instructors line-up I think ‘My god, every school should be like this!’”
