Programs Offered at Boston College
Emagination offers three technology camp programs at Boston College.

Computer Camp
Our core computer camp program is for 8-17 year olds and balances technology learning with fun summer camp activities in two-week sessions.

At Boston College we offer 25 Technology Workshops plus three recreation choices including Retro Games, Swimming and Improv.

All campers at Emagination are assigned to small groups with a counselor mentor. Kilobyte campers ages 8-10 eat together and receive assistance with daily living activities and have earlier bedtimes if they stay overnight. Megabytes ages 11-13 are the largest group at camp. Campers in 8th grade or higher before camp are part of Senior Camp. Seniors take workshops together and are granted more independence, free time and special activities.

Overnight Camp starts with drop off on Sunday afternoon and ends two Fridays later at 4:00 PM. The weekend in the middle of the session is part of the program and is tuition free.

Day Camp operates Monday-Friday and day campers are invited at no charge to Saturday activities and the end of camp party on Thursday night. Three Day Camp options offer parents maximum flexibility.

Day – program runs 8:45 AM to 5:00 PM with pick up anytime between 4:15-5:00 PM and includes lunch.
Extended Day - program runs 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM and includes lunch and dinner.
