Boston Tech Camp for Summer 2018

Boston Tech & Design and Minecraft Summer Camp

Empow Studios summer tech camps return to Boston at the beautiful Old South Church in Back Bay. Located right across from the Boston Public Library, Old South Church serves as a great space for exciting projects and camp fun! Physical breaks will be outside (weather permitting) for outdoor games like Zombie Tag and Frisbee toss. For pick-up and drop-off, there is street parking on Boylston St., and at 100 Clarendon St. for $7. Old South Church is conveniently located right next to Copley Station for public transportation.

For check-in, parents will utilize street parking, local parking garages, or public transit to bring their children to camp in the church. When entering, parents will identify themselves to the front desk who will buzz them into the elevator. Empow programs take place on the 3rd floor.

Noon check-outs will need to come up to the third floor for pickup, but PM and full day campers will be down at curbside for pick up. From 3:50PM-4:10PM, we will have a pick-up area across the street from the church by the Copley T station Elevator entrance (652 Boylston Street). The campers will be supervised by our staff while they wait for their authorized pickup to pull up. Any children not picked up by 4:10PM will be brought back to the main program room on the 3rd floor for extended day.

Empow’s Tech & Design Camp and Minecraft Camp are coming to Boston for four week-long sessions of Summer Camp! Camp is open for kids entering 2nd – 8th grade.

Our STEM Curriculum & Teaching Approach

We have always been focused on getting girls and boys across a wide range of interests and ages excited about the creative power of technology. As educators, we’re also constantly trying to improve our practices and tools. We’ve built a new system that will support both of these goals: Talent Box.

Each child’s accomplishments are acknowledged in a way that is motivating, lasting, and flexible through the use of badges. Badges are awarded when kids complete tracks in specific technologies, and are also awarded for leveling-up in cross-disciplines, including secret unlockable badges! Kids choose projects that level-up in three domains: Art & Design, Building, and Coding.

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.”
