Each summer, New College Institute hosts educational camps for local middle school students that are designed to maintain their enthusiasm for learning during the months away from their school classrooms.
These popular camps regularly “sell out” with camp sizes limited to allow for specialized attention from instructors for participants.
“We had no idea what to expect for the technology camp, and our expectations were truly exceeded! It was very evident that a lot of time and planning was put into organizing the daily activities. My child was very eager to arrive at camp each day and spoke about each daily activity. She even commented that the program should be two weeks long!”
– Valerie, mother of technology camp participant
