From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We empower kids by providing safe, creative, and innovative experiences with digital technology. At camp, our hands-on learning takes place in small groups or 8 or fewer, and our screen breaks are social and interactive. Each moment serves a purpose, from our opening circle to the end of Extended Care -- to help kids be open with us and one another, to be responsible with technology, and to grow and be inspired by what’s around them.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? At Pixel Academy we share a common belief: Kids should get a jump-start on technology at a young age, and can have a ton of fun doing it. Job growth in tech fields is exploding and schools around the world are catching on to STEM integration to prepare their students. What our founder Mike ideated, and what our team has worked so hard to realize, is a series of hands-on and immersive experiences that stir creativity and encourage a lasting identity with technology.
What do you love most about your job? Every year, I look forward to opportunity to watch our campers grow. Whether a camper comes in for a first experience with tech and leaves with a new interest, or arrives with an existing identity with technology and leaves with it reinforced, it’s the bonds they create with their work, their instructors and each other that makes each camp so memorable.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? It’s fun to see parents wowed by the cutting-edge technology with which their kids learn, or when they share their delight with our how knowledgeable and engaging our staff are. But the unmatched best moment is watching our camp parents fill with pride and excitement when they see their camper’s passion ignited.
