How It Works:
This guide is based on years of frequently asked questions.
1. SummerTech is a weekly experience, Sunday through Friday. You can sign up for any or as many weeks as you like.
2. You will choose ONE course per week as your main focus and receive about 15 hours of study in that subject.
FAQ: Will my camper miss anything if they don’t come the first week?
A: No! All curriculum is based on the individual. Whenever a camper/student is with us they either pick up where they left off or they can try a new course. All work is saved. They will never repeat curriculum. We teach to the individual.
FAQ: Is there an advantage to coming the first week?
A: Nope! The biggest difference between weeks are the elective choices – we offer different electives each week but we don’t present them until Monday of each week. Typically, however, we offer intro classes of our main courses as electives. So if you’re taking, let’s say, Python, but are curious about Animation, there will likely be an elective in it. Here is a list of electives we have run in the past.
FAQ: If I’m returning for another week, do I need to come on Sunday?
A: No, you do not. However, there is a class on Sunday and a lot of fun things to do. What we suggest is skipping the opening ceremony and arriving at 4pm on any additional weeks you’re attending. But you’re welcome to join us for everything!
FAQ: Do I need to pack a lunch?
A: No! We offer your camper a full lunch. College cafeteria style. There are veggie options. If you have other food needs like Kosher or anything else, we can put you in touch with the food service provider who is more than happy to explain what they offer so you can decide how you’d like to approach meals.
FAQ: But CAN I pack a lunch?
A: Of course! We have a refrigerator but we do not have a way of heating it up. So plan accordingly.
FAQ: The schedule says the day goes until 9. Do campers really stay that late?
A: Great question! Here’s the breakdown of the week. Sunday is our orientation day. We really want campers there from at least 3pm to 6pm to go through our basic orientation. But we invite them to stay until as late as 9pm. NO EXTRA COST! The evenings are when all of the social events happen. You can sign them out any time until 9pm. Monday through Thursday, the basic day is 9am to 5pm but again, we invite you to stay until as late as 9pm. Friday ends at 2pm with a closing ceremony. Parents and family members are invited. It’s lovely! Weekly schedule here!
FAQ: If my child stays past 5pm do I need to send them with dinner?
A: No! We provide a full dinner! Yes! Really! No extra cost!
FAQ: This is our first time at SummerTech. If my child loves it can we add weeks?
A: Yes! As long as there is space.
