Learn more about Camp

Empow Camps offer kids a chance to design, build, code, animate, and in general explore ways to use technology as a creative medium. Our helpful teachers take pride in guiding campers toward success with their projects and helping the discover their strengths and passions. It’s more than a computer camp or a STEM camp; it’s a design and making camp tailored to all skill levels, where kids use creative learning to build unique skills that lasts a lifetime.

Tech & Design Camp is the one camp to rule them all: Video Game Design, Robotics, Animation, 3D Modeling & Printing, Music Production, and other exciting projects are all fair game. Whether it’s building a working guitar made of LEGO MINDSTORMS, designing an action-packed video game to challenge friends with, or creating an animated mini-movie, the options are limitless, and the learning doesn’t stop! We teach the nuts & bolts behind these subjects, and campers use their imagination to make their project come alive.

We loved the Empow experience. My kids could not get enough of it – they nagged us every morning to leave earlier (which has never happened before). I am really pleased that both boys, who have very different interests, were so engaged.

Melissa, a Lexington Empow Camp mother

“It’s a unique camp… where you can learn new technologies, which is something you can’t really do at home.”

“I keep coming back here because it’s a place where I can be myself.”
“If I could come here all the time, I definitely would want to.”
