CELEBRATING 40  YEARS!

PREPARING KIDS FOR THE  FUTURE OF TECHNOLOGY

1982 was a memorable year for progress and technology. The year's blockbusters were showing off the latest special effects in films like Bladerunner, E.T., Poltergeist, and Tron, and Michael Jackson's astonishing album, Thriller, was heard and seen everywhere. The compact disc had just emerged to prove that lasers can outperform records, tapes, and 8-tracks, but the Sony Walkman was tops on everyone's must-have list. That same year, Walt Disney opened the Epcot Center to show us the world of tomorrow, and the Commodore 64 is launched—and goes on to sell over 20 million units until it's retired in 1994.

It was in this atmosphere of excitement and experimentation in the new Digital Age that Emagination Tech Camps were born to help usher in the next generation of computer and technology experts, and become the "Dungeon Master" vanguard for kids who wanted to explore the inner workings of Pac-Man and Pong, or probe the inner magic of their IBM, TRS-80, and Apple computers.

For more than 40 years Emagination Tech Camps has provided a safe space to explore these ideas in a summer camp setting. Kids from the States and around the world with an interest in technology, computers, and STEM-based programs have come to our campuses for inspiration, community, and a solid education. We also manage to pull those same kids away from screens each day to build relationships, enjoy the fresh air of our beautiful locations, and have a LOT of summer FUN! 

 

Family-owned since 1982, Emagination currently operates summer tech camps near 6 major cities in the East and Midwest United States. Our staff is comprised of experienced camp professionals—and many alumni—who are dedicated to the positive development of children.

Our mission is to educate, entertain, and help kids and teens grow into well-rounded, self-assured young adults. Emagination’s core Tech Camp Program merges a technology-based curriculum with a traditional summer camp experience. Campers range in age from 8 to 17, and high school aged campers are invited to participate in our Teen Leadership Program to continue their personal development and  receive support in pursuing career and creative opportunities. 

Emagination Tech Camps are proudly accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) in Connecticut and Massachusetts, and all locations are operated using the Associations' camp standards
