How does my child pick workshops?
Campers select their workshops when registering prior to coming to
camp. We are happy to help you select workshops, just give us a call.
Campers choose three tech workshops and one recreation option. Campers
receive their schedule approximately one week before camp begins.
We make every effort to accommodate camper wishes but we cannot guarantee
that every workshop choice will be available due to demand and scheduling
constraints. In cases where demand exceeds capacity, spots are allocated
on a first come first served basis.
Can my child change workshops once camp begins?
Yes, for the first two days of camp we try to accommodate requests
for changes so long as there is an available spot in the desired workshop.
How many campers are in a typical workshop?
A typical workshop ranges in size from 5-10 campers. Larger workshops
will generally have a Program Assistant in addition to the counselor.

Yes, we have one computer per camper in our tech workshops except
for some Build workshops where the curriculum is designed for campers
to work in teams.

around campus unescorted?
No. Campers are escorted on campus by Counselors, Program Assistants
or Senior Campers and no overnight camper may leave campus. Day camp
families will have a password for daily pick-up.
Do campers have internet access?
The Internet is used in supervised workshops and during supervised
free time. Camp rules prohibit the viewing of inappropriate websites
at any time. Campers who bring computers from home may connect them
to the internet in the dorms. Camp rules require open dorm room doors
when campers are not dressing or sleeping, however, we cannot guarantee
that campers who bring their own computers will not access the internet
and make such access available to a roommate in violation of camp

Is camp appropriate for my 8 - 10 year old?
Our program is geared to offer a traditional camp experience to campers
who have an interest in technology…regardless of age. Our low ratio
of campers to staff, age appropriate recreational activities and age-based

campers. We understand parent concern about sending youngsters to
camp and we can arrange periodic updates during your child's stay
