A Small Sampling of Today’s Technology for Ages 7-10 (as of the camper’s first day)
Tech Tapas features an exciting new mix of platforms and mediums for technological exploration. Diving deep into various software and devices, Tech Tapas campers express and develop their artistic and problem-solving skills. Each day campers will learn new skills and techniques across multiple mediums, such as Tynker, Photoshop, iMovie, and more! New this year – a free-form Genius Time: utilizing any available software, campers round out the day by working on any project of their choice! Daily art class, instructional swimming, and physical activity all supplement a fun-filled day! Campers will receive a copy of their work to take home at the end of the week.
