Exploration Camps are designed to give 4th and 5th graders a chance to lean in and start to deep dive into topics, while still maintaining a camp like feel. Exploration: Technology will give campers who are interested in code and software a chance to delve into the next level of skills and practice.  Campers will spend time 6 feet apart in our computer lab, equipped with state of the art air filtration systems, but also have time outside- either in problem solving circles, or in “camp breaks” where they swim, play games, and picnic lunch.  Come experience the best that camp can offer! 

Exploration Technology, Week 3, July 6-9, 2021:  Learn to Code:Make your own Games & Animations (no camp Monday, July 5)
