LOCATIONS NEAR YOU
Our locations outnumber any other STEM or coding summer camp in Massachusetts. Just choose the one that is most convenient for you.
With an 8:1 camper-to-counselor ratio for on campus programs, and a 6:1 ratio for LIVE Virtual camps, we get to know each and every camper personally, providing the unique and personalized support they need to thrive.
BIG FUN, BIG LEARNING
Our comprehensive educational programs are flexibly designed so that every camper can create their own fun while learning new skills and making new friends.
We provide inclusive spaces where kids are encouraged to share their ideas in a safe environment, learning from and with friends and staff.
Kids get to create cool things that they can be proud to show their friends and family, such as video games, 3-D printed creations, and even robots!
Enjoy free access to files and software for an entire year, and have access to year-round services throughout Massachusetts.
A Typical Day at Camp
The flow of a typical week at our award-winning summer camps is awesomely diverse and packed with big fun.
On the first day of camp, campers engage in some initial, getting-to-know-you activities and circle-up time with instructors. Our 8:1 student-teacher ratio ensures that kids get the appropriate welcome and attention in order to feel comfortable and confident in our camp environment. They’ll get acquainted with guidelines and safety measures, watch tech demonstrations, and be introduced to a wide range of tech options for exploration.
After exploring the project options on their particular tech path, and with encouragement from our talented, knowledgeable staff, campers will dive into subjects that spark their interest and begin to realize their passion and emerging skills.
We incorporate outside activities and break times (including lunch, of course) throughout the day to balance the time spent in front of computer screens. Depending on our location, campers will walk to a park, work off some energy on a playground, or get involved with a game.
By mid-week, campers will either be focusing on a specific tech path—to tackle larger, more sophisticated projects—or continuing to explore the creative options available on their individual tech paths. Kids can also collaborate, learn from friends, and share ideas with each other.
At week’s end, our rock star campers will show off their projects to the community and parents, and get continued access to their project or game files to keep the BIG FUN going long after their camp experience is over!
My son has a learning disability and often balks at new experiences, but he literally ran into camp every morning, and was bright eyed and proud of his accomplishments at the end of each day! Your team was outstanding at understanding and adjusting to his learning differences.
I had two boys at your camp. One focused on robotics and the other on music. They both had great fun and learned too!
My son does a various summer camps and this one is always his favorite! He was really happy with his project and was able to learn new programs. Eric is a fantastic camp director: he is really patient, understanding and has a genuine interest in connecting with and supporting the kids. Thanks!
My son, James, attended four camps this summer - a general one, two sports camps, and your STEM camp. Yours was his favorite! His second morning he announced that he'd been wishing all night for it to hurry up and be time to go back to your camp. Thank you so much for feeding my budding scientist's creativity!
My child had a phenomenal experience! He RAN intro camp everyday and did not stop talking about it for the entire night upon his return home. We were so pleased to find a program where the instructors were fun, engaging and supportive, and where each child was able to work at his own level and to really be challenged. I can't believe how much got accomplished in one week!
My son LOVED your camp. He was almost speechless the first day he came home -- he finally just breathed, "It was AWESOME." He was very excited by the choice of projects and really proud of the one he completed.
Our son had a blast at Empow's week-long Minecraft camp, where he learned new and more advanced ways of playing the game, including command blocks, redstone circuits, and more. We're sending him back this summer!
