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. It’s a tech camp for kids to pick what projects to create within digital & creative arts, engineering, and computer science.
Are you ready for the ultimate week-long learning adventure? Our camps are tailored to all skill levels, whether you’re just starting out your explorations or you already know you’re 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, and even making a very simple computer inside Minecraft. As they master Redstone skills, we offer challenges that teach key concepts in programming, design, electrical engineering, and architecture, all while using teamwork and social skills. It’s the perfect blend of fun, learning, and creativity.

Empow’s Lexington Summer Camp has kids from in and around the town of Lexington. Our campers tend to come from Lexington, Arlington, Waltham, Belmont, Burlington, Newton, Jamaica Plain, Cambridge, Lincoln, Bedford, Winchester, Concord, Acton and more.
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.
“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.”
