208 Kids WHO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

FEES: Day program, $589 to $799. Boarding program, $909 and

$1,059. Financial aid is available.

BACKGROUND: An academic program started in 1997, the

Cybercamps philosophy is “Human brains learn more when

they’re having fun.” Cybercamps has locations across the

nation, so there is probably one near you.

DESCRIPTION: Kids will get about five hours of hands-on work

for creating new projects and learning more about technology.

At the camp, kids can take one-week courses or series

courses that can last for three to four weeks. Among the

courses offered are a Programmer Series, in which students

are taught C++ and learn about professional programming.

There’s also a robotic series, for students to create their own

robots and later face off in a “battle-bots” tournament! The

Arts and Animation Series allows students to work with digital

photography and show off their artistic side. There is also

time for recreational games and activities, when students get

the chance to meet other campers.

OUR TAKE: This camp mixes computer skills and fun. If your

child wants to become a computer whiz, this is a possibility.

The multitude of courses offered attract all types of kids.

Those who are in the boarding program get to experience life

in a university dorm. This is a great camp, where students can

enjoy themselves, broaden their knowledge of computer

technology, and maybe discover their career path.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: Make sure you call to see if this camp

will provide the best experience for your child. Because there

are so many Cybercamps around the country, your research

is important.
