Emagination’s teaching style
We believe in the positive impact of a teaching environment that maximizes the personal interaction between campers and counselors. Instead of online tutorials that are used at many tech camps, we choose to use professionally developed curriculums that are delivered face-to-face by carefully selected instructors who have firsthand experience with the material they are teaching. We believe our hands-on workshops foster more engaged learning and encourage relationships with counselors and peers.
