Technology Camps

About this Camp:

TechStars® by Computer Explorers have designed camps to engage young children in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) approach to learning.  Our camps provide a hands-on educational setting to make learning fun!

Lunch Bunch Option (ages 6-10): Children whose camp ends at 11:45 am, can stay for lunch until 1:00 pm for $25 per week/per child.  You must fill out a registration form at the Recreation Center.

Camp Expedition Option (ages 6-10): Have fun at the Recreation Center before or after your camp.  Click here for details. 


LEGO® In Motion (ages 6-9):

Young budding engineers love this hands-on, minds-on camp.  Concepts of simple machines such as gears, pulleys, levers and wheels are introduced through a series of activity-card LEGO® building projects. With the use of a motor and electrical controls, the models come alive right before their eyes! All new models to tinker with this summer.

Minecraft Survival Adventure (ages 7-10):

We may be dodging fireballs from exploding volcanos or hiding from a snow giant on Mount Everest. This will take teamwork and collaboration as we mine, craft, build, and problem solve our precarious situation. Students will be solving this survival adventure on a teacher-monitored closed server.

Animation Moviemaker (ages 7-10):

Clay and animation, what a perfect combination. Working in teams, students do it all, from story creation to making the characters with clay and building the sets. As they learn the production process, they will use a digital camera and computer software to animate, record, download, assemble, and edit their own movie.

LEGO® Robotics (ages 7-11):

LEGO® Robotics provides wonderful hands-on opportunities for the students to experiment and learn about the fundamentals of robotics, construction, and computer programming. We will be using the all-time familiar LEGO® bricks to build around a microcomputer and using computer software to bring the robot to life.

Minecraft Space Adventure (ages 7-12):

This is a fun and engaging camp where kids learn to problem solve in a role playing MOD. We learn to manage resources and build our own space stations to survive in deep space. In a STAR WARS inspired story, we suit up as Jedis to rescue hostages off a planet and disable the Empire’s mother ship on route to meet up with the resistance.

Computer Coding in Minecraft (ages 8-13):

This camp is more than just “mining” and “crafting” in Minecraft. Students will conceptualize, design, and learn how to create MODs and modify the game using JAVA. For students who have good listening skills and are interested in computer programming, this is a fun introduction to object oriented computer programming.
