Summer is right around the corner and parents are starting to think about camps and programs to send their kids to. There’s the standard day camps, sport camps, even drama camps. Did you know more than ever summer tech camps for kids and teens are on the rise? These camps offer all kinds of opportunities for young people to explore their interest in technology and learn new skills. Think coding and programming, video game design, robotics, web development – you name it! And the best part? They get to do all this while having a blast with new friends and experienced instructors.
Summer tech camps are hands-on and super engaging. No boring lectures or textbooks here! Students get to roll up their sleeves and dive right into building projects and experimenting with technology. They’ll learn how to code in different programming languages like Python and Java and get a better understanding of how technology works in the real world.
But it’s not all just work, work, work. Summer tech camps are also a chance for young people to let loose, have fun, and meet other kids with similar interests. Many programs offer outdoor games, field trips, and other activities to help students unwind and have a good time.
So if you’re looking for a unique and exciting summer experience for your child, consider signing them up for a tech camp. They’ll make new friends, learn new skills, and maybe even discover a passion for technology they didn’t know they had.
If you’re based in Whatcom or Skagit Counties and looking for summer tech programs for your child, there are several options to choose from.
For example, Whatcom Community College offers several courses revolving around coding, digital arts, and video game design. We’re pretty sure all you would have to mention is “video game design” and any child would squeal with delight and beg for you to sign them up.
Another amazing tech summer program is put on by Bellingham + Skagit Coding + Robotics Club. “Kids will discover new tech skills in an energetic, kid-friendly learning environment. Kids can expect a common sense mix of instructions, breaks, social times, team building, outdoor play, optional sports and other creative tech activities.”
While you may not immediately think of a tech-based summer camp, getting your children involved at an early age will help for a more robust educational experience. Who knows, maybe they’ll learn how to build you that website you’ve needed for your business, or design an app that helps you manage your household or schedule. The sky’s the limit when it comes to technology and young minds.
