Summer Tech Camp Options

Tech & Design Camp

It’s the one camp to rule them all: Video Game Design, Robotics, Animation, Coding, 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. This isn’t your typical STEM Camp or Computer Camp, it’s a Tech & Design Camp where kids learn to design, build, and code; a tech camp for kids to create projects in digital art, engineering, and computer science.

Minecraft Camp

Are you ready for the ultimate week-long learning adventure? Our Minecraft Camp is tailored to all skill levels, whether you are just starting out your explorations, or you already know your way around creepers. We start by introducing campers to Redstone, a special kind of element that mimics electricity almost perfectly. Campers of nearly any skill level can have fun building circuit boards, coding unique mods, and launching their custom commands all inside of Minecraft. As they master Redstone skills, we offer challenges that teach programming, design, electrical engineering, and architecture, all while using teamwork and social skills. It’s the perfect blend of fun, learning, and creativity.

Our 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.”
