Technology Camp for Kids

Technology Camp for Kids

Registration opens April 2, 2018

The Del Mar College Technology Camp is a creative summer technology camp designed for students in grades 3-8. Students have the opportunity to explore academic areas of computer programming, app creation, and computer animation in a structured, non-pressured academic environment.

Students gain advanced knowledge in working high-tech computer programs which allows them to build, create, and design their own computer programs, apps, and animations. Students also improve social, critical thinking and problem-solving skills by working in pairs or teams for most of the program. All student projects created can be saved and shared with family and friends.
