$199 for One Week of Kids’ Summer Camp ($450 Value)
The staff at Encampus doesn’t consist of your typical camp counselors. Their instructors hold experience in different fields of science and technology, which earns them the right to teach summer camps that focus on the same areas. Lego Mindstorms teaches kids how to build and program robots, whereas Scratch camps relay a programming language created specifically for youngsters by MIT. The Programming with Alice, designed by Carnegie Melon University, uses interactive 3D tools to help kids learn the concepts of programming.
