Techie Camp

Techie Camp is a full day, week-long program designed to engage elementary and middle school students in hands-on, interactive STEM-related activities. Students take a deep dive into subject matter focused on Robotics, Programming, Android App Development, 3D Printing or Web Development and emerge with skills that are useful in today’s classroom and tomorrow's workplace.

TECH CORPS offers two types of camps: (1) open enrollment camps and (2) sponsored camps. For an open enrollment camp, any student within the appropriate grade range can register and attend. Open enrollment camps range from $325-$400, depending on the location. For sponsored camps, TECH CORPS receives generous support from various sponsors in order to provide a camp experience at no cost to students who meet certain requirements.
