Learn to Code While Having a Blast at Summer Camp
At Emagination Programming Camp teens ages 13 to 17 learn to code using Java, one of today’s most popular dynamic programming languages. In this two-week program, campers learn programming fundamentals and code in Java to build a variety of applications for Windows, XML Web services, distributed components, client server applications and more.

There’s scheduled time each day for organized outdoor games, swimming and supervised time to hang with new camp friends. The weekend includes Super Saturday, a day of epic games between campers and counselors and Lazy Sunday with plenty of time to chill.

Start Here, Go Anywhere!
The program is designed for teens who want to learn to program Windows applications. It’s immersive and requires experience and comfort with algebra. No algebra? No problem — get started today at Emagination Tech Camp.

Progressive Curriculum – Go At Your Own Pace
Progressive curriculum lets less experienced campers learn the fundamentals before moving on to more complex concepts. Campers with prior coding experience expand and sharpen Java coding skills while building applications. Coding skills learned at Emagination form a solid foundation on which campers can build applications.

Get Valuable 21st Century Life Skills
In addition to learning how to code, the program is designed for campers to work collaboratively and experience team building and develop relationships. Completing a collaborative project within time limits teaches time management skills. Campers present ideas and project status updates to campers and counselors.

Counselors Lead the Way
Emagination Instructors teach Java coding and oversee camper progress in the development of their final windows application projects. Campers are encouraged to offer creative input and develop relationships with other campers. Completed applications are shared with fellow campers for feedback, testing and debugging.

Get Unplugged
At Emagination, we believe in building healthy bodies as well as minds. That’s why all our campers participate in organized games and activities. Games include dodge ball, capture the flag, Ultimate Frisbee. And nothing says summer camp more than swimming which is offered at most locations. At night there is time for video games and supervised time to just hang out with new camp friends.

A Traditional Camp Experience
From camper groups and Refresh period to our Evening Program and Super Saturday, our campers participate in daily activities which go beyond the classroom to encourage social interactions, participation, and fun!

Weekend Included
The weekend between weeks includes a day of fun on Saturday and rest on Sunday, all included in tuition. On Saturday, campers and counselors team-up for indoor and outdoor games and activities and then stay up late at the Saturday Night Programming Party. Day campers are invited to join the fun on Saturday for camp activities including a sleepover.
