A Summer Immersion Experience

Camper-Counselor Ratio

With an 6:1 camper-to-counselor ratio, we get to know each and every camper personally, providing the unique and personalized support they need to thrive.

Risk-Free

Any 2021 Summer Camp cancellation made prior to April 1, 2021 will be refunded in full. Families are also eligible for a refund up to two weeks (14 days) before camp starts. Please review our full refund policy here.

Experienced Online

Our team is stocked with experts in distance education and online learning. We know how to make online learning fun, interactive, and engaging, while balancing time on and off the computer.

Project-Based Camps

Unlike online classroom learning, our small camp size and project-based learning model ensures that campers are actively engaged. Each half-day virtual camp day includes a 3-hour group session and 1 hour of independent project time.

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!

Best Technology

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.

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. Each virtual camp schedule includes one daily 3-hour group session and 1 daily hour of independent project time. Instructors are available by email during independent project time. 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 Project Time. 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 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!

HOW WE MAKE LIVE VIRTUAL STEM SUMMER CAMPS AWESOME

Daily Schedule

Our half-day virtual camp is a hybrid of instructor sessions and self-directed project time. With a total of 20 hours per week, half-day virtual camps include 15 hours with a talented instructor and 5 hours for independent project time.Your kids will be engaged, giving you time to get things done at home or work. We’ve worked with thousands of students online!

Morning or Afternoon Half-Day Options

Summer boredom is solved with a variety of camp sessions and both morning and afternoon options. Looking for a full day virtual experience? Register for both a morning and afternoon session. A camper who has enrolled in our Tech & Design Exploration: Builders camp might enjoy our Tech & Design Exploration: Creators camp. A Minecraft Expedition veteran might want to challenge their skills in Advanced Minecraft. We have something for everyone!

Technology

To get up and running, your child will need a Mac or PC with microphone, speakers, and internet. If you have used your computer for Webex, FaceTime, or used the audio collaboration features in Fortnite or Minecraft, you’re probably all set. If you only have access to a Chromebook or tablet, please call us to discuss the more limited options we can provide.

RAVE REVIEWS FROM PARENTS LIKE YOU …

These virtual classes rock-- we love Empow!

I didn’t think I’d get to see my friends for awhile, but with the online Empow class, it’s like we’re together again!

These classes give me the time to get my own work done while knowing my child is learning valuable skills in a supervised setting. You've done a great job!

The small virtual class size and attentive and knowledgeable teachers make sure that my son is engaged and learning while also having fun!

My two kids attended virtual classes at Empow Studio today with their teachers and classmates, and it was a fantastic experience. Not only did it keep them busy during this challenging time when both my husband and I are trying to work from home, but it also provided them with an enriching academic activity and fulfilling interaction with their teachers and classmates!

Both my husband and I are physicians, and are having to work long hours while our kids are at home with limited supervision. You have thought of everything we are desperately in need of right now. THANK YOU!

THANKS FOR THINKING CREATIVELY TO ASSIST FAMILIES DURING THIS TIME!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for doing this for our children (and for us parents too)!!!!!

Celebrate your child’s passion for technology and enroll in the ultimate STEM summer camp experience

As technology increasingly influences our lives, computer science and its related fields are now more important than ever – yet many kids still don’t have enough opportunities to learn about technology. For 10+ years, our mission at Empow has been to bring students fun, engaging STEM instruction that boosts their confidence and gives them the skills they need to succeed in our modern world. At our award-winning summer camps, our students are learning to do amazing things with computers. 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.
