Looking for a summer camp for your child? These summer programs are science and/or technology oriented. They'll experiment and enhance their computing, programming, app design and other technical skills this summer. How can that be bad?! They are listed here in alphabetical order. Quotations were obtained from the camp's website.

Arizona Challenger Space Center
Adventures in Space Camps. Summer campers will use fun, hands-on learning to make their own discoveries and will explore how their findings affect our daily lives Grades K-8.

Astronomy Camp
At the University of Arizona in Tucson. "Campers become astronomers, operating research telescopes, keeping nighttime hours, interacting with leading scientists, and interpreting their own observations."

ASU Summer Camps in Math, Engineering, Sciences, Technology
From 7th grade through high school, you'll find summer camps about robotics, video game design, app design, computing, robotics and technology boot camp.

Camp Innovation at Arizona Science Center
From learning about natural forces, investigating a crime scene, exploring the messy side of science to discovering the world of insects and meteorology, campers will develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills while being engaged in science. More than ten different camps for ages 3-14.  

CodaKid is a computer science and game design academy focused exclusively on courses for children from the age of 6 -14. Students enjoy small group courses with experienced coders, technologists and designers. Scottsdale.

Digital Kids Camp
A five-day camp for kids ages 8 to 13 who will use the latest technology to make movies, stop-motion animation films and produce their own morning news program. Full or half days. Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, Scottsdale.

iD Tech Camps
Summer computer camp courses for ages 7 - 17, held at at Arizona State University in Tempe. Programming, game design, apps, robotics, web design, film, photography, and more. "Our summer computer camps for kids, pre-teens, and teens are segmented by course and age. Teens will study, socialize and eat with other teens, but may be in the vicinity of younger students during lab time....We provide a well-balanced, fun summer camp experience that is age-appropriate for kids, pre-teens, and teens. Imagine a small group learning environment where the curriculum is tailored to you. A place where you build critical 21st century STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills in intimate clusters of just 8 students maximum per instructor, and collaborate with new friends."

i.d.e.a. Museum 
Two summer camps. The Summer STEAM camp for ages 6 to 12 incorporates cience, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) concepts. Activities feature lessons on how an idea for an invention turns into a reality through creative thinking, engineering, design and problem solving. Campers also will make art and develop an invention of their own by exploring materials and techniques. The second camp explores robotics. Campers will use robotics and engineering principles, learn about teamwork and develop problem-solving skills as they compete in a robotics challenge. Geared toward 9 to 14 year olds. 

Stargazing For Everyone
"An exciting fun mix of hands-on science, history, technology, mathematics, literature, arts and crafts. Presented by Tony and Carole La Conte, Professional Stargazers.
