Emagination’s core computer camp program balances technology learning plus summer camp fun for kids and teens, ages 8 – 17 who come as either day or overnight campers. Campers learn valuable technology skills by taking three technology workshops and develop social and physical skills with a daily recreation workshop.
From beginners to experts, Emagination has tech workshops for every camper. Workshops include 3D Animation, Digital Music, Web Design, Video Game Design, Mobile Game Design, Programming, iApps, Robotics, RC Cars, and many more.
In their recreation workshop, campers go for a swim, play soccer, capture the flag, ultimate Frisbee and enjoy other outdoor summer camp games and activities. Additional recreation and traditional summer camp activities are available during the camp’s evening program.
Campers are taught using professionally developed curriculums delivered in person (not online) by a dedicated staff of young adults who share a passion for technology. Counselors are recent college graduates, current college students and Emagination camper alumni. They are studying computer science, information technologies, digital arts and related fields.
Kids and teens who love technology come to Emagination’s summer camps from nearby communities, across America and internationally.
Specialty Programs for Teens:
At Boston College, Emagination also operates its two-week STEM oriented Game Design and Minecraft Coding camps for teenagers.
At Emagination Game Design, teens come as overnight campers and experience what it’s like to work at today’s top game design studios. Using industry standard software, students learn key game design skills then choose a role on a development team. Teams build a playable 3D video game, then present it to a panel of industry experts for critique and awards. Students also take a tour of a local game design studio to see what it’s like behind the scenes of their favorite video games.
At Emagination Minecraft Coding, teens come as either day or overnight campers and discover programming concepts and learn Java coding skills while creating custom mods for Minecraft, including new environments, character skins, models, and structures using industry standard software.
