Our campers consistently tell us that the best part of Emagination is “finding their people”. Year after year our overnight campers tell us one of the biggest reasons that they want to return to Emagination for another year, other than taking more tech courses, is because of the friendships that they made at camp.
Campers and staff reside in college dorms with Wi-Fi, lounges to hang out in, and video games to play. Two-week-long sessions allow overnight campers more time to build connections, meet like-minded peers and make lasting memories. Find your home away from home at Emagination STEM Camp’s Overnight Program. With 20+ STEM Course options and the ability to customize your daily schedule, we offer more variety than any other tech camp.
