QUICK TAKE: At this camp, kids are given the tools and the

opportunity to build a computer, work on computer graphics,

and understand programs such as JAVA. This camp teaches

how the complex machine works—and makes it look easy.

Kids are guided by a brilliant and diverse staff, as they explore

and gain an understanding of technology.

AGE REQUIREMENT: 8–17

DATES: The camp in Massachusetts offers four sessions every

summer; the Illinois camp holds three. Sessions are from 10

to 13 days in June, July, or August.

FEES: Day program, $795 to $925; Boarding program, $1,595 to

$1,700.

BACKGROUND: The camp was started in 1982 and has locations

at Lasell College in Massachusetts and Lake Forest Academy

in Illinois. Students come from around the world. Older students

help younger campers as they work together.

DESCRIPTION: Three types of workshops are offered. In the art

workshops, students study beginning to advanced computer

art, graphics, and 3D modeling. The High Tech workshops

give students the tools and knowledge to build a PC! Here, they

also can learn about Web design, radio-controlled cars, and

related technical topics. The Programming classes encompass

C, C++, JAVA script, Visual Basic, and so on. Kids receive individualized

training and lectures from staff members with

expertise in each area. The kids are on a busy, organized

schedule, but there’s still time for some recreational activities

as well.

OUR TAKE: This camp provides challenging and innovative

work for kids young and old.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: Make sure your kid really wants to

understand the nuts and bolts of computers.
