New Summer Camp Options Added

Just added to the 2015 summer camp roster is the Eureka Workshop in partnership with CodeVA. The three week long, half day sessions will teach youth about computer science through a variety of creative activities. They will learn animation, crafty computing, and basic electrical circuitry. The price for this camp is $150 for city residents and $170 for non city residents. Camp will take place at Linwood Holton Elementary School.

In addition to the co-ed Lego Engineering Summer Camps operating this summer, there will be a “girls only” section that will operate from August 10 through 13 at Linwood Holton Elementary School. This section of the camp will be taught by women engineers and scientists and provide an environment for girls to apply real world concepts in physics, engineering, and architecture. The price for all of the Lego camps are $160 for city residents and $180 for non residents.

Also added to the summer camp options is a five week video production boot camp at Hickory Hill beginning on June 29. This full day camp has been designed for teens 12 to 15 years that are interested in learning all aspects of video production from creating a story board, writing the script, editing, and how to build sets. The Teen Video Production Boot Camp registration fee is $260 for city residents and $280 for non city residents.

Registration for all camps can be done online today using the link to WebTrac found here or by stopping by any of our community centers.
