The 5 Cs of a Quality Tech Camp

HTL Cover Spring 2015 2

There are plenty of options to fill your children’s summer schedules. Nature, sports, photography, dance, music, plus many more camps are available to entertain and educate your kids. If you’re reading this article, specialty technology options are probably high on your radar. STEM, STEAM, Robotics, Lego and increasingly Minecraft are becoming prevalent in the Pittsburgh region. Just the mention of the word, Minecraft, is sure to grab your child’s attention. It’s great to see kids excited about technology, creative camps, and classes, however we feel passionately about the need for parents to really do their homework when making a decision. All technology camps and especially those that mention Minecraft are not created equally!

 We know your time is at a premium and you don’t have time to complete an in-depth independent study to compare and contrast the variety of technology summer camps in our area. To help you in this endeavor we’ve created the 5 Cs; a list of the 5 most important topics to consider when evaluating the quality of your specialty technology summer camp options.

We use Minecraft and other specially designed software as innovative tools for creation and learning. We do not design our programs using Minecraft as a gimmicky theme to fill seats. Our experience, research, and curriculum development methods have helped us leverage young people’s interests to help them achieve genuine learning and meaningful experiences that will help them well into the future. Each camp’s technical curriculum is developed in-house through a rigorous curriculum creation process. In addition to the technical skills, each camp is packed full of unique opportunities for face-to-face collaboration. We test and revise new learning activities continuously throughout the winter and spring.  When summer arrives, we have created two brand new polished camps ready for your child’s enjoyment!
