VACATION CAMP

Exploration, inspiration, education, creation, and acceleration are the foundations of our award-winning STEM Vacation Camps, an experience for kids in grades 2-8 during February and April vacations from school (and when parents have to go into work).  Get to know the technology that powers our modern and future worlds!

Robotics at Empow Studios

Explore our most popular program, Tech & Design Exploratory, at our February and April Vacation Camps. It’s for kids who want to explore a wide range of fun technology, find out what options are available, and begin to realize their areas of greatest passion. Campers will have a wide range of options to check out, including Video Game Design, Digital Animation, Stop-Motion Animation, EV3 Robotics, 3D Art & Printing, 3D Architecture, Digital Audio Production, and Coding/Programming Fundamentals in Scratch, Python, and Java. Campers are encouraged to dive into several options over the first few days and then dig deeper in areas that excite them, or continue to explore the wide range of tech choices.
