Summer is Coming: How Are You Going to Spend It?

Ignite your passion with Digital Media Academy Summer Tech Camps

Ah, summertime. For many young learners, summer means no school, no responsibilities and perhaps a little bit too much free time. Is the young person in your life at risk of spending their whole summer playing video games? Sign them up to learn how to program using Minecraft instead. Do they spend all their time on TikTok or Instagram? Foster their interest in content creation and give them the opportunity to level up their skills.

Digital Media Academy’s summer Tech Camps are designed to engage and inspire young learners aged 9 to 18 with an interest in technology, digital media and, yes, video games.

With hundreds of courses available, the best time to register is now.

Online Camp: More Flexibility, Fewer Mosquito Bites

Traditional summer camp is all about bunk beds and bug bites. Digital Media Academy summer Tech Camps have something different to offer.

Although the world is beginning to open up again, many of the top-tier universities that we usually partner with to provide on-campus summer camps continue to be cautious. Out of respect for these institutions’ policies, most of our summer Tech Camps will be conducted online once more this summer.

What does this mean for your camper? It means that they have the opportunity to access instructors and curriculum normally reserved for university campuses like NYU and Stanford from the comfort of their own home. For parents, it means an enriching and exciting experience for your young learner that fits into your schedule, and requires no travel.

Digital Media Academy courses are designed to take full advantage of the tools and approaches that are unique to online learning, fostering a much different experience than many students have had with online learning through their schools.

Here’s what one student had to say about his online learning experience at Digital Media Academy.

Each Tech Camp program is one week long, with camps running from June through August.

If your young learner is especially passionate or skilled and would benefit from a more immersive experience, consider registering them for a summer academy. Academies offer those aged 13 to 18 the option to accelerate their learning by taking two camps over two weeks.

All young learners who complete a Tech Camp or academy receive a certificate acknowledging their accomplishments.

What Parents Are Saying

Digital Media Academy has been offering summer Tech Camps at top-tier universities around the world for over 20 years. When the pandemic necessitated a rapid transition to virtual learning, parents were no longer sure what they could expect. As it turns out, parents and their learners loved virtual summer Tech Camp. Here’s what some of our parents had to say.

“My child came away from DMA with a whole new set of skills to match his interests.  DMA Virtual Camps gave us an easy way to encourage our child’s creativity, and build some new skills.”

“DMA Virtual Camps was a godsend. At first, I didn’t see much value in a virtual course. However,  it provides students with a well-rounded assessment of various careers compared to just completing one course in person.”
