Emagination Computer Camps, a national operator of summer technology camps for children, is expanding its Programming Camp to its Massachusetts, Illinois, and Georgia locations for the 2017 summer season.
The expansion comes after the program’s success in its inaugural 2016 season at Emagination’s Pennsylvania and Connecticut camps.
“We were very happy about the overwhelming success of Emagination Programming Camp in its first season and we’re excited to bring this great program to new locations,” said Craig Whiting, President of Emagination. “As at all our tech programs, the programming camp combines tech learning with a fun summer camp experience filled with recreation and opportunities for social development.”
Emagination Programming Camp is a 2-week STEM camp for teens ages 13 – 17 who are interested in learning how to program with C# – the world’s most popular programming language for creating Windows applications.
In addition to learning how to program with C#, campers will also engage in fun daily recreational activities as part of Emagination’s goal of providing the lifelong benefits of a traditional summer camp experience as well as fun technology learning – the cornerstone of the company’s mission to “educate, entertain, and help develop healthy kids.”
Emagination’s camps are located at Boston College in Newton, Massachusetts, Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Illinois, Mercer University in Atlanta, Georgia, Rosemont College in Rosemont, Pennsylvania, and Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut.
Each location also operates Emagination’s computer camp program for children ages 8 – 17.
Emagination’s Computer Camp program blends technology learning with fun summer camp activities to create a well-rounded summer camp experience. Campers learn 21st century technology skills while also developing valuable social and life skills through recreation workshops and traditional summer camp activities.
The computer camp offers more than 25 technology workshops including Virtual Reality, 3D Animation, Web Design, Video Game Design, Coding, Minecraft, Robotics, CAD, and more.
Campers come for two-week sessions as day or overnight campers. They choose three technology workshops plus a recreation activity. A Talent Show, a day of games on Saturday and an evening program of recreation and technology help create a well-rounded summer camp experience.
