Tech Camps

Available to campers currently in grade 3 through age 12, Roeper offers three unique Tech Camps during the summer - Javascript Programming & Minecraft Game Design  OR  3D Printing & Roblox Game Design OR Comic Creators. Campers participate in focused activities for part of the day and Swimming, Outdoor Adventure and Group Choice activities for the remainder of the day. These classes will be taught virtually in an on-campus computer lab. Campers will need to bring their own laptops as Roeper has a very limited number of devices to lend. Campers build valuable STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) skills.

Tech Camps are offered by AccelerateKID Summer Tech Camps, who, in 2013, set out to reinvent "tech camps" to create future creators for the 21st century.
