Enrichment Camps

Spark your child’s imagination with interactive and educational camps tailored to their interests.

We are excited to announce Fall Enrichment Camp programs. We know your youth are eager to continue connecting with other youth and actively engage their minds this fall – all while having fun. To help you with this, we teamed up with Black Rocket to provide a series of opportunities for your kids to explore their computer science curiosity this fall.

The magic in every student comes to life as never before when they are empowered to be as creative as they were all born to be!  Black Rocket has twenty years of experience designing courses in the S.T.E.A.M fields.  Every program is powered by the child’s innate imagination and designed to bring their ideas to life in a fun, hands-on learning environment. All Black Rocket programs mirror real-life experiences and the collaborative nature of the design process.

Classes are Saturday or Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday with early and late offerings for most options starting September 18 through December 23. Immersive activities are guided by live, online instructors in a moderated virtual room where students can engage with the instructor and interact with other participants.
