Campers will create their own games and applications with graphics, sound, and more that use advanced data structures, while reinforcing camper skills in Python’s fundamental features like variables, loops, conditionals and functions. More advanced campers can also extend their skills into real-world programming challenges using Python’s wide variety of built-in libraries.

Turn your passion for video games into hardcore coding capabilities!

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!

Campers work hard and play hard when designing cool video games.
Campers build and program a robot to carry out commands.
Getting outside and engaging in physical activities is an essential, healthy way to balance the day. Plus, it’s summer!
Two campers enjoy the collaborative process of producing a short film.
Campers soak up the satisfaction of completed projects and a tech job well-done!

Thank you again for how much Abby enjoyed camp! We really appreciate the activities, the counselors, and their patience and caring. She can't wait for more!


Thank you and your outstanding and creative staff for such a wonderful experience! My son couldn't wait to get there in the morning and never wanted to leave.

–Megan in Newton

My kids loved it, and are very excited about what they learned. Great job!

–Joan in Acton

I appreciated that our kids were given independence and creative freedom to explore multiple technologies.

–Navetta in Acton

My child was excited to go every day!  He loved working on his project. The staff was super friendly and dynamic. I would definitely recommend it.

–Elvira in Newton

My 8 year old daughter attended summer camp at the Acton location. I was impressed by the staff, who obviously knew their tech but were also very skilled at working with children for an extended day (not just a class). A factor not to be taken for granted!

–Alene in Ayer

My son was so excited to be making movies. Even now that the class is over he is using his camera and windows movie maker to keep using the skills he learned. He is very proud and excited at what he learned!
