Now online nationally!
WHY CHOOSE EMPOW LIVE VIRTUAL STEM SUMMER CAMP
Our project-based virtual camps offer a supervised, small-group, interactive experience that combines fun and learning. Our creative approach to education has our kids coding their own video games, engineering custom robots, filming original movies, creating digital artwork, and much more.
Unlike online classroom learning, our small camp size and project-based learning model ensures that campers are actively engaged. Each Monday, Tech Demos help campers start their cool new projects. Campers enjoy plenty of fun, games, and social activities all week, leading up to Friday’s Graduation and Project Showcase!
As parents ourselves, we understand how difficult it can be to commit to summer camp right now. Empow offers full refunds up until 2 weeks before camp begins! You can also easily transfer between available on-campus options and virtual camp options. Flexible full-day or half-day options are available to fit your family’s schedule for a stress-free summer.
Our team is stocked with experts in distance education and online learning, and we have gained even more experience this spring teaching hundreds of students online! We know how to make online learning fun, interactive, and engaging, while balancing time on and off the computer.
Our online learning technology really sets us apart. Our counselors mix virtual classes, 1-on-1 coaching, feedback on camper projects completed in TalentBox (our very own learning management system and curriculum), and safely monitor classroom communities via chat and text.
An A+ Grade
With countless awards, Empow is known as a favorite among families in the region and is trusted by more than 150 educational and enrichment organizations that support STEM programs.
Year of Access Included
Camp projects do not need to end! For a full year, your child will have access to their digital project files on TalentBox and use of the software they used to complete their projects. They can continue to build and refine their amazing creations!
Amazing Year-Round Staff
Unlike many STEM summer camps, we offer year-round programs, allowing us to hire, retain, and train amazing, dedicated instructors! Again and again, we hear from students and campers — “I wish these were my teachers at school!” The best of fun and learning together!
With amazing year-round teachers, small classes, proprietary learning technology, flexible refund policies, unmatched #1 awards, and reasonable prices, we offer unbeatable value. Surveys routinely rate us as far better than more expensive programs that swoop into Boston once a year to run camps on expensive college campuses.
AN AMAZING LINE-UP OF ONLINE CAMP PROGRAMS
A Typical Day at Virtual Camp
The flow of a typical week at our award-winning Virtual Summer Camps is awesomely diverse and packed with big fun.
Big fun and big learning at camp starts with a virtual drop-off, attendance check, and Daily Scrum (or Circle-Up for our younger campers). Rest assured that campers are supervised throughout the entire day. Parent communication takes place just as it would with our on-campus programs.
Ready for the day, our counselors engage campers with a Tech Demo during Morning Project Time. Morning Project Time also includes time for independent project work and collaboration with counselors. An off-screen break, such as meditation or a brief physical activity, helps balance screen time.
Late morning Project Testing is an opportunity for campers to share their projects with other campers, get (and give) constructive feedback, and help iron out the bugs. Tech Talks throughout the week expand campers’ knowledge and ignite their passion for learning.
We’ll provide a different fun activity each day during Lunch Break. Campers who want to eat with their family can be checked out by parents.
Following afternoon attendance check, campers will continue their project work during Afternoon Project Time, while counselors check in with campers individually and in small groups. We’ll mix things up with more Tech Talks throughout the week, and each afternoon includes a fun off-screen activity.
We’ll end each day with Project Wrap-Up time and virtual pick-up. Campers finish the last details of the day, save their files, and show off their work with fellow campers. And when we get to Friday, it’s time for Graduation and Project Showcase! Our rock star campers love showing off their projects to family and friends.
Throughout the entire virtual camp experience, parents can engage with campers and the teaching team using our private and secure messaging server, see the kids’ progress, and be part of the experience!
