“My boys loved these camps. I will never forget how proud they were to welcome my husband and I into their summer camp and show off their amazing games. My middle son still talks about the game he created on Kodu.” Read more.

My son enjoyed the program very much. He already knew a great deal about Minecraft, but he told me that he learned how to “tweak” things like enhancing redstone. I think it’s a fantastic creative class that kids can partake in safely. Highly recommend!

This was a great opportunity for our son who felt completely within his domain. He was beyond excited to come, which is not always his reaction to summer camps.

This program gave my child a chance to see what goes into the Minecraft games that he enjoys and how to do things with it that most children don’t get to realize.

My son loves electronics. Most of his use is for entertainment.  It is awesome that he can utilize a computer for learning and creativity. He loved the class and was always excited to attend. In addition, it is my understanding that my son was able to work with others, big accomplishment.

This program gave him a chance to express his creativity. In the camp, he was exposed to 3D printing. This is amazing!

Both of my children have looked forward to attending “minecraft camp” every day. This was the second year they have done it. It was a highlight of summer vacation last year and again this year.

My son couldn’t wait to be old enough to take this class. And it surely did not disappoint! He was up early every day and couldn’t stop talking all day about what he learned. It was fantastic to be able to connect him with something constructive concerning his favorite video game!

My son (10 years old) had a great time working with other kids his age playing and building in the Minecraft world he loves so much. He learned new skills and applied them immediately at home showing and teaching his younger siblings the things he learned.

My son was very excited to learn about 3D printing technology and to actually get a printed model of his own creation. Great program to introduce the kids to the latest technology and let them explore. Thank you!

This program opened my son’s eyes to the world of creation. He is extremely motivated now, thank you!

This class was the highlight of my son’s summer. The staff was so professional and he got a lot of individual attention.

My two children (ages 6 and 11) have attended several of Hi Tech Leaning’s camps.  We always take the opportunity to attend these camps because the kids love them and they learn so much.  The teachers are enthusiastic and knowledgeable and they get kids into age appropriate material that they might not to be exposed to until high school if it weren’t for these camps. Many of the programs used in the camp are available online for free; so the kids can continue working on them after the camps get them familiar with the basics.  My 6 year old’s last camp ended three weeks ago, but he just programmed a new game for himself yesterday!  I highly recommend these camps.

Both my children looked forward to Hi-Tech learning camp.  They were excited developing new skills and had a great sense of pride in what they produced.  They enjoyed being surrounded by children with common interest.  As they developed their computer skills they also enhanced their writing, drawing and problem solving skills.  But, to them, it was just plain fun!”

“By collaborating with a partner, the children had to determine which of their ideas were most important to the project.  It wasn’t all about them.  They had to listen to their partner’s ideas and negotiate the idea process.  My children were excited to show, not only their work ,but the work of the other students.  They appreciated the creative process and how each project could be completely different.  There was no sense that one was better an another.  Everyone was creative.”

“I appreciate the enrichment aspect of Hi-Tech Learning.  I like to offer my children the ability to grow and develop in the area(s) of their interest.  Hi-Tech Leaning builds their interest creatively and satisfies them beyond the traditional classroom.  I appreciate that Mr. Walk and Mr. May seek out new technology and offer it in a matter that keeps my kids asking for more.
