At TechVenture summer camps, Redmond kids learn valuable skills and have fun! Our program includes hands-on, creative projects using STEM and critical thinking skills.
Kids may test their own Minecraft Mods, program a robot to navigate a maze, or code a circuit to play rock-paper-scissors! Girls and boys play, learn, and have fun. Best of all, they gain confidence as they meet challenges. It is an amazing way to explore the ever-growing world of technology!
Summer Camp enrollment is open! See below for details and summer camp weeks.
We offer six different Summer STEM programs in the Redmond area for kids ages 8 to 14. Choices include robotics, game development, animation, and coding.
See our individual listings for the details about each camp.
TechVenture’s Games and Robots code camp is a mash-up of digital games and robotics. Campers use MIT’s Scratch and Wonder’s Dash Robots to learn the fundamentals of computer programming. They participate in the Robot Tossing Competition and other fun projects. While collaborating with partners, campers develop math, and problem-solving skills. They gain confidence in their understanding of computer science through game design and play. Unplugged activities keep campers bodies moving and minds engaged.
Camp Weeks: June 25-29, Aug 13-17
Note: For a fun week of girl-inspired projects and learning, we offer a GIRLS Code Camp the week of July 23rd.
Does your kid love robots or animations? TechVenture’s Animations and Robots Code Camp Jr. provides younger children with an introduction to technology. Children work with a partner to complete hands-on projects using computer tablets. They develop age-appropriate math and problem-solving skills. Girls and boys love writing code to control their environment. Don’t worry, kids don’t spend the whole time plugged in. Unplugged activities get kid’s bodies moving too.
Camp Week: July 9-13
Does your kid play Minecraft? At TechVenture’s Minecraft Mashup summer camp, kids take it a step further with circuit-building, music making, coding, & more! Using Piper computer kits, kids collaborate with hands-on tinkering, construction, and discovery. Learning to assemble electronics to build a functioning computer, is even more fun and challenging when there are puzzles to solve and challenges to conquer within a Minecraft adventure map!
Camp Week: July 23-27, Aug 20-24
Do you enjoy playing and building in Minecraft? Tinkering or creating things, in the real or virtual world? In this TechVenture camp, kids learn the basics of coding Mods in a Minecraft world; and practice hands-on tinkering with circuits to build simple inventions. How cool is that? Students take their ideas from concept to design to results, exercising their minds in critical thinking and problem solving. This camp combines the thrilling world of engineering with the challenge of writing code! Taken a Minecraft Mash-up camp with us before? Never fear – there’s lots more to learn. Our coding coaches evaluate students on the first day of camp to ensure they are progressing on their learning path of computer science. Sign up again for this camp to experience new coding challenges.
Camp Week: Aug 6-10, Aug 20-24, Aug 27-Aug 31
Does your child have an artistic eye? TechVenture’s Digital Photography Camp provides an exciting mix of arts and STEM. Kids learn to take great photos and use them to tell a story. This project-based camp features outdoor excursions, collaborative photo shoots, and hands-on editing projects. Campers learn to shoot and edit digital photographs and build a unique digital portfolio they can share.
Camp Week: July 16-20, July 30-Aug 3
Camp Week: Aug 6-10
Enjoy playing games or solving problems? In this Python starter camp, TechVenture combines Python programming and electronics for curious minds to code and make. Students learn how to use Python’s fun and easy programming language to create quizzes, guessing games, and basic arcade games. We then add in hands-on building time with the Micro:bit electronics kit to build and program simple inventions. Prior programming experience using block platform or text-based languages is helpful, but not required. Our coaches guide students at any skill level.
Camp Week: July 30 – Aug 3
